Okay, so I have to say that Gayle Forman is a genius. Where She Went is so emotionally powerful and gripping that it has been a half hour since I turned the last page and I am still trying the settle the vibrations of excitement stirring in my chest. The way she writes makes me feel like I was in the story, experiencing everything first hand. If you are planning to pick up If I Stay, make sure you grab this book at the same time because they beg to be read together, in one setting, after you have locked yourself into a room and every other distraction out. The writing style makes me think of a puzzle where every piece comes together to fit so seemlessly that it feels real and not a work of fiction. There are not enough good things to say about this book! Brilliant!
