Where She Went - Gayle Foreman

Publisher:  Dutton Books, April 5, 2011
Pages:  258
Source:  Received an ARC from LibraryThing
Genre:  Young Adult, Realistic Fiction

My Review:
In the sequel to If I Stay, we find that Mia and Adam have gone their separate ways.  Adam has his own rock band Shooting Star and he is dating a movie star.  He is on a whirlwind tour.  Mia is having success of her own at Julliard.  Three years have passed since they were last together.  Adam finds himself stranded in New York.  He and Mia meet by chance.  This is the opportunity for us to see the Adam we knew still existed under the many layers of the new Adam.  The two of them begin opening up old wounds that will help them begin a true healing process.  The reader is taken on an emotional roller coaster ride, or at least I was.  For me this book was more intense and more enjoyable than the first book.  It seems funny to say that because I really, really loved the first book.  Where She Went has the raw emotion that makes you hang in there rooting for this couple.  This is a book I could see myself reading again and definitely recommending to others.
