If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Snow day. Mia’s family (mom, dad, and younger brother teddy) pile in the car to go visit some friends. Next thing Mia knows, she is standing over her broken body on the side of the road watching her parents being zipped into body bags and herself and her brother rushed away in an amulance. Is she dead or alive? She’s in the middle, having to decide for herself. Reflecting on her past and watching her friends and family cope in the waiting room as she stays in a coma, Mia lets us into her world–her relationships with her boyfriend Adam, best friend Kim, her family, her love of classical music, her insecurities and passions. This book is moving and causes you to ask “what would you do if you had the choice?”
