Hi readers


SYNOPSIS:

Just listen, Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel.

I open my eyes wide now.
I sit up as much as I can.
And I listen.

Stay, he says.

Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?

Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it's the only one that matters.

If I Stay is a heartachingly beautiful book about the power of love, the true meaning of family, and the choices we all make.

CRITICISM:

If I stay is the book that everyone is talking about, well actually is the movie everybody is talking about. I read the book 3 months ago, I was so excited because I heard good things about it, and then I was a little disappointed because I actually didn´t quite like the book. Why I didn´t like the book?
Well I liked the plot of the book it was well written, but I felt like it is missing something, which is the main thing that I look in a book which is FEELING. I didn’t felt the connection between the Reader and the Book. Maybe it was because I like books which has a surprise in them, I felt this book was to monotone, I got bored in some point of the story.

POSIBBLE SPOILER!!!
I read the synopsis of the other book when I finished ¨IF I STAY¨, so I got more disappointed. They broke up! I was like: WHAT IS THE POINT OF MAKING A BOOK WHERE THEY FIGHT FORLOVE AND THEN BROKE UP! It doesn´t make sense at all, maybe that is why I didn’t like that much this book, because I felt like it was pointless, that EVERYTHING was pointless.
I still will not give it a low rate because the book is not bad, I didn´t like it because the fact I gave in the begging.

I will give it
3.5 OUT OF 5 STARS.
