The sequel to "If I Stay", but very different both in style and in atmosphere. At first I wasn't sure I wanted to read it, as I was afraid having a sequel would diminish the impact of the first book, but it actually worked really well. It was different enough that it seemed more like a follow-up than a sequel... if that makes any sense.

I know this will sound weird, but I actually thought this one was more depressing than "If I Stay". IIS was sad as, but I never actually found it depressing, whereas WSW was very dark and bleak... or at least started out that way. Fortunately it changed, or I wouldn't have given it a 4 star rating :)

I did like it though. It didn't blow me away the way IIS did, but it's a decent book that gave a believable answer to "what happened next". And I loved the ending :)
