Publisher's Summary

A powerful display of empathy and friendship from the number-one New York Times best-selling author of If I Stay.
Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from home to find the boy that he loves, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City after a family tragedy leaves him isolated on the outskirts of Washington state. After the three of them collide in Central Park, they slowly reveal the parts of their past that they haven't been able to confront, and together, they find their way back to who they're supposed to be.
Told over the course of a single day from three different perspectives, Gayle Forman's newest novel about the power of friendship and being true to who you are is filled with the elegant prose that her fans have come to know and love.

Her best yet -should be required reading for adults too

This does not “dumb-down” important issues life YA sadly often do these days. It tackles lgbtq,Islam,race and the desire for fame with beautiful Poetic prose. A total heartbreaker worth each word. No weak fillings.
I
am so grateful for this gift of a book.

very contemporary, but a solid "C"

I *loved* Leave Me and Where She Went/If I Stay, so I blindly preordered this and regret it.

The audible has three different voices but even with different narration, I found it difficult to keep track of who is speaking and confusing. It took at least an hour to acclimate.

The 3 storylines are very contemporary and relatable, particularly if you are in your early 20s. The book also has a sweet "YA" feeling with "good vibes" at the end, but overall it was a "rental" B move I wish I hadn't rented.

Summary: three strangers collide. An event brings them together and you slowly learn their individual backstory/what they were each going through and grappling with at the time of the impact. As the title tells, all 3 were at a “crossroads” wondering where they were going, how they got to this place, and most scary: who would love them if they told the truth/were finally themselves and not who they thought everyone wanted them to be. Through their unlikely and strange new kinship they help each other to evolve... becoming truthful/free.

The whole story is a meditation on not being who you are because you’re afraid if you are yourself you’ll be alone, rejected, unwanted... but is the alternative actually better? Because living a lie and living for others happiness is miserable too. “The truth will set you free” is the basis of this book (that and the importance of honesty).

I do think this book could be magical if it hits the reader at the right time in their life. I’d recommend this to college-age readers, especially if they are struggling with being happy and themselves. As a voracious reader/listener (250 books per year) this was a miss for me and definitely more towards the bottom but I still like the author and recommend other works by her.
