Book Review


I have a duology (is that a word) for you to read!  If I stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. 

If I stay is the first book in the series.  While this has an overall emotional storyline, it is written in way that makes you forget about a tragedy and fall in love with the family of characters.  I could not put this book down and became extremely invested in the story.  I just had to know how it would turn out.  Thus, after I finished, I went to the next book….

Where she went is of course the second book.  This was even better than the first.  It brings together the details and also pursues the love story started in the first book.

I thought these were great and quick reads.  Definitely not a beach read (which equals fun and light for me) but still good nonetheless!

Have you read these or have any suggestions?
