I enjoyed this book at the time, but two weeks after reading it my memories of it are pretty vague. The story is told in flashbacks by Mia, who is hospitalised in a coma after a car accident that killed her parents and brother. As per the title, she's deciding whether to stay or go - that is, live or die. Because apparently this is a decision you can make when you're in a coma. Anyway, in this fairly slim book, Mia thinks back on her relationship with her boyfriend, her love of music, her best friend, and eventually makes her decision. Which makes it sound rather dull, but it's structured well - I did enjoy it. I won't be looking for the sequel though.
