I'm probably the only person who liked this book more than If I Stay, but I had a hard time with the story of the hospital experience, because I've been there, done that. With that said, it was still all kinds of outstanding. If that makes sense... I also tend to have an affinity for books that take place in the aftermath of really bad stuff happening (ie, Freefall, Winter Longing, The Truth about Forever). Anyway, I didn't think this book needed a sequel, but I'm so glad it had one. Let's just say, about 85% into the book, I teared up and started sniffling and didn't stop until the last sentence.

Also, let's hear it for short books! I love that Gayle Forman writes succinct novels that make use of each word. It's so refreshing amongst so many doorstop-sized, purple prose-filled tomes.
