Publisher's Summary

It's been three years since the devastating accident... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is L.A. 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, lyrical 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.

Groovy and the Geek

This is a very touching and poignant sequel to "If I Stay"- richly detailed and told with heart as the story reveals the truth for Adam and Mia in alternating slices of the past and present. In an interesting turn, this follow-up is narrated with gut-punching honesty from Adams perspective. The author keeps her reader in suspense until late in the story and does not make it predictable as to how things will actually turn out for the two main characters. The audio production is better than good, they engaged just the right voice to portray Adam...it is pretty much exactly what I would imagine he sounds like. A don't miss, in my opinion, particularly if you are a fan of the original story.

Can you love someone enough to let them go?

I feel like words are so inadequate to describe the way I felt about this book. A facial expression or some kind of half-squeel half-sob feels more appropriate. But I’ll do my best to explain in words how completely and utterly wonderful this book is.

Where She Went is told from Adam’s point of view..and boy is he damaged – “battle scars” in his words. Poor guy doesnt even know why Mia left him. My heart ached for Adam half the time and the other half I was seriously pissed at him because he was just acting childish i.e. throwing tantrums and some of the err..activities that he was engaging – ugh, I mean I get it dude..your heart is broken but really?

The story telling method is similar to If I Stay in that it goes back and forth between the present and past. However, alot of the past memories were ones from the relationship between Adam and Mia and it was SO GOOD to see more of their relationship (since Mia’s flashbacks weren’t just about Adam).

I really connected with Adam, which is weird because I am rarely able to connect with a male character. (It took me more than half of The Maze Runner before I could get into it because it’s told from Thomas’ perspective.)

Ultimately Where She Went is about Adam asking himself this one question:
