Mia and Adam have not seen each other for three years, not since the tragic accident that killed Mia’s family. Now, Mia is graduating from Juilliard and starting to tour as a world famous cellist. Adam and his band are topping the charts. And then… a chance meeting brings the two together one night after Mia’s concert in New York.

Forman, Gayle. Where She Went. Speak, 2011. 264 pages. Paperback. $10.99, ISBN 978-0-14-242089-8

I didn’t read If I Stay by Gayle Forman but I did see the movie. I loved the movie but when it ended, I went “Really? Is that all I get? What happened next?” Where She Went answered all my questions.

I won’t give away the book – no spoilers here – but I will tell you that Mia and Adam spend the next three years apart. Where She Went fills in the blanks and ends with a chance meeting between Mia and Adam. They spend the evening together visiting Mia’s favorite New York haunts and talking. When the morning comes and it’s time for Adam to fly to London, does he? Were these two meant to be together? Does Adam have to let Mia go as he promised her when she was in a coma and he begged her to stay? Can their two separate careers co-exist if they stay together? Read for yourself to find out. You won’t be disappointed.
