Overall there are worse places to be, but Anna has left behind a brother, a best friend, and a boy she is almost dating. When she goes go France she right away meets Mer, who immediately accepts her into her circle of friends. Two of them are dating (Josh and Rashmi) and then there is St. Clair. The gorgeous boy who Anna is instantly attracted to, and she's not alone. But St. Clair has a girlfriend who graduated the year before but is still in France. So he is off limits but the two quickly become best friends. I love that they develop a relationship as friends before anything else. It really helped build up the story and wasn't the cliche love at first site can't leave each other alone.
Throughout this book both St. Clair and Anna deal with their respective relationships with the other people in their lives and try to figure out who they really want to be with. When tragedy falls this group of friends it bring St. Clair and Anna even closer. But at the same time their intense feelings could drive each other away if left unsaid. This book as amazing, and I loved the interactions throughout the group. How Anna comes out of her shell and starts to enjoy France and it's with the help of her new friends that she does this.

**spoiler alert** This third book in the series has been the best in my opinion. Dru is finally at the big school where she was meant to be all along.**spoiler alert** This third book in the series has been the best in my opinion. Dru is finally at the big school where she was meant to be all along. Everyone knows now there is a another svetocha and that someone has been trying to hide her. I thought this book has been the best because Dru develops more she isn't trusting of anyone at the school which is a good thing. She is still working hard to try and save Ash. I love that she won't give up on him, and that they have a friendship that he doesn't have with anyone else. I really hope that Dru succeeds and that Ash will one day again be human. Also finally we get some Dru and Christophe, it has been a long time coming and finally we get some real emotions going between these two. Personally I am a Christophe fan so I was happy when he cleared up a few things about him and Dru and him and her mom. This book left off with a cliff hanger so I can't wait to see what happens next, and when is Dru going to finally bloom?! ...more
This book picks up three years after Mia's accident. Mia is in New York and is the up and coming musician in the classical music genre. Whereas Adam (This book picks up three years after Mia's accident. Mia is in New York and is the up and coming musician in the classical music genre. Whereas Adam (whose POV the book is written in) is a huge celebrity because of his band Shooting Star. Adam is despondent and disconnected from life. He doesn't like his celebrity status, he no longer loves music like he once did, and his band-mates resent and blame him for his fame. Though Adam appears to have it all he is hanging on by a thread. He hasn't talked to Mia since she walked away from him without ever really telling him it was over. She went away to school and never came back, this is what gave him the material to write his songs and launch his band into super-stardom.
Adam is in New York one night before he leaves to start his world tour. He see's that Mia has a concert and he can't help but go. They meet afterward for the first time in three years and they end up spending the night wandering around New York together. Mia and Adam talk about their lives and what they are like now. They each discover new things about the other and they finally discuss what happened those three years ago.
I loved Adam, I thought he was awesome in If I Stay, but he was even better in Where She Went. He was such a real character that you couldn't help but share his emotions with him. His confusion and hurt over Mia leaving and never coming back. He lost a family too but he was there for her and she just vanished. It kind of made me angry at Mia. Adam was just simply lost those years without Mia. Things that were once important lost their value to him, and he slowly became a different person. I really didn't like how his band went against him, they were clearly jealous which I can understand but they had to have seen how he didn't like the publicity and attention.
Throughout most of the story you got the vibe that Mia had just moved on. She was over Adam and didn't belong in his life anymore. We slowly got to see Adam get closure. He accepted that he had asked Mia to stay and he had to uphold his end of his promise. He realized that knowing everything he does now he would still make the same promise if she would live. I liked how honest and Mia were towards each other at the end of the book they all just laid it out there. Mia said why she left him, and in a sad way I can understand her reasoning just not her method.
I loved this book, I was shaky of a follow up. But this book proved amazing. This one was solely about Mia and Adam whereas the other book more focused on Mia and her family, Adam included. I thought this book was wholly entertaining and I couldn't put it down I had to find out what happened. It would be awesome if there was another book, but if this is the last one than it was great!...more

The very beginning of the book left me a little off kilter. At first I thought I had missed a book or something but nope it was just a lot of information that happened previously to the book starting. I enjoyed this book and will definitely see where it goes in the future. This book leaves off with a pretty heavy cliffhanger so if you don't like that I would suggest you wait to read this book until the next one comes out in January 2014....more
