Waiting on Wednesday (37)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week:
Where She Went by Gayle Foreman
Release Date: April 19th, 2011
Synopsis from Goodreads:
My first impulse is not to grab her or kiss her or yell at her. I simply want to touch her cheek, still flushed from the night’s performance. I want to cut through the space that separates us, measured in feet—not miles, not continents, not years—and to take a callused finger to her face. I want to touch her to make sure it’s really her, not one of those dreams I had so often after she left when I’d see her so clear as day, be ready to kiss her or take her to me only to wake up with Mia just beyond reach.

But I can’t touch her. This is a privilege that’s been revoked.

It’s been three years since Adam’s love saved Mia after the accident that annihilated life as she knew it . . . and three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future—and each other.

Told from Adam’s point of view in the spare, powerful prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

My Thoughts: I loved If I Stay, and though I was apprehensive about this sequel at first I think that it's going to do the first one justice. Even if it doesn't I still can't wait for it to come out! I love the cover, it fits perfectly with the paperback of the first one, and if the synopsis is any indication, fits this story well.

  1. I've had If I Stay on my TBR list for a long time. I was actually thinking of giving up and sending it (along with several other books I bought on impulse and have never read) along to my local used book store. Now, however, I'm thinking I might have to give it a chance because, if nothing else, the sequel sounds pretty good!


Your comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, keep them coming!
