If I Stay
is the tale of a teen named Mia Hall who survived a catastrophic car accident, but is narrowly averting her own obliteration while she's in a coma. Mia's entire family was slaughtered in the incident, but oddly enough it spared her. Mia is on a great mission to find reasons to stay alive; at some points in the novel, she wants to abandon all hope just give up. While she's facing this huge ordeal, her condition is gradually worsening until she is driven to make her final choice: should she stay, or should she join her parents and brother Teddy in death?
I would definitely say that this book targets teens in high school with it's romance and thrill.

I think out of all my friends, Alexa Biddle would like this novel the best. First of all, this book has the romance between Adam, Mia's boyfriend, and Mia, which I think would entice her. Second of all, it's a pretty easy read. I felt like the plot moved fairly quick and it held my attention all the way through the book. Lastly, I think Alexa would enjoy it because it gives a great message in the end: there are so many things worth living for, and there's always someone that loves you. All in all, this book was a fantastic read and I would gladly pass it on to a friend.

's setting is mainly a hospital in
Portland, Oregon in the present day. This
setting is crucial to the novel because it really shows how critical Mia's condition is after the car accident. The setting says that Mia's condition was terrible enough to be hospitalized.
