Oh man, this book gutted me. I’ve read If I Stay several times and loved it, even though on occasion I felt like I was reading a path that had already been covered. Where She Went felt like brand new territory. Seeing everything from the point of view of Mia’s angry, bitter, vulnerable, unlikeable and somehow lovable ex boyfriend not only made for a compelling story, it shed brand new light on everything that happened in the previous book and made it seem that more poignant and believable. Now that I’ve read both books, I don’t think I’ll be able to read them separately. The two together make for one solid story and I will absolutely enjoy reading them again.
