Title: "If I Stay
Author: Gayle Forman
Number of Pages: 234

A family of four, consisting of a mother, father, daughter, and son began what they believed to be a normal snowy day. They were cheerful and happy to be living in Ohio. Since they had a day off of school they decided to go to their grandparents for lunch. However, they had no idea what was of their future. While the Hall family was driving on the ice covered streets, they were hit by large truck and three of the four of them were killed by the accident. Mia, who is a 17 year old girl was the only survivor; although she went into a deep coma. During her coma, Mia had to decide whether she would stay or leave, meaning die or continue to fight to live. She had a plethora of flashbacks re-living the happy memories she had spent on earth which helped her make the most difficult decision of her life. The author lead me to believe that Mia did stay and continue to live her life as an orphan.
