Publisher's Summary

Cody and Meg were inseparable. Two peas in a pod. Until... they weren't anymore.
When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything - so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg's college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there's a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, and some secrets of his own. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can't open - until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend's death gets thrown into question.
I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

Average read with some strong points

I enjoyed Foreman's If I Stay duology so thought I would check this out.

I don't think this was as hard-hitting as I was expecting, and there were certainly some moments that had me either rolling my eyes or thinking WT even F?! Though there were also poignant and powerful moments, especially toward the end, which I think came together really nicely.

The characters had distinct and rounded personalities but they weren't anything particularly memorable. Side Note: I appreciate that Foreman went for some diverse characters but I was disappointed that it fell flat. Meg Garcia could have easily been Meg Johnson and you wouldn't have been able to tell the difference. It's things like this that make me call the book average.

The narrator was excellent! I would definitely listen to her again.

Pretty good

I almost quit listening a few times. It was slow and dragged in parts. However, there are good pieces to this story as well. The narrator was okay...but sounded pretty depressed much of the time. I get that this is a sad topic, but it takes away from the story to have such a melancholy voice the whole time. I've read better stories from this author.
