|UK Cover Version|
Published by: Doubleday Childrens
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future–and each other.
Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance. (Description from Goodreads.com)

I fell in love with Adam Wilde in If I Stay where he was a gentleman and a complete romantic. To read Where She Went from his perspective was incredibly painful and a shock for me. I could not handle the bitterness of Rock Star Adam at points. It was just so different from the character I fell in love with before. Without Mia, he was empty, cold, bitter, alone...
I'm a wreck right now after spending most of my hot afternoon day crying my eyes out reading this book. After what Adam went through I just couldn't help but remember every miserable moment I suffered in relationships over the past few years and I broke down. Where She Went was heart-wrenching and beautiful to read. I couldn't put it down!
When Mia walked away - again, out of Adam's life, I was scared. Even though a giant anvil was lift off his shoulders after their epic exchange of words, I couldn't help but feel frantic reading along. When Mia showed back up on page 204 I let out a breath I didn't realize I was holding in. I was relieved for both Adam and Mia. There was so much still left unsaid between the two!
Where She Went is by far the best book I have read this year so far. I don't see how another book could compare at this point. (Watch me be proven wrong next month very easily).
