In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces - to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heart-wrenchingly beautiful, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time (from Goodreads).
This is another one of my library finds, I’ve been going to the library a lot lately. I usually go through this period were I go to the library all the time but than I stop going. I mean I owe so many books so I really do not need to go the library at all. But still I go and lug more books home to read and I usually read all the library books that I bring home. Anyways, when I saw this book I new I had to read, I’ve seen so many good reviews on it that I could not pass it.
First of all I think it is a terrible thing that happens to Mia and her family. I felt so sad for her, there were few times that I wanted to cry. It must be awful to loose your entire family all at once, I would not know what I would have done if I was in her shoes. The story is told from Mia’s point of view and it goes back and forth between current and past events. There is romance, love of music, friendship and love of family in this book. I really liked Mia’s parents there were very cool and awesome parents, but they were also good parents. I liked Adam, he is a nice guy; he and Mia have a good chemistry going on between them. But this story is not so much about relationship between Mia and Adam, but rather it is a about loss and making right choices.
Writing was good and flowed very nicely, even though I have enjoyed this book it is by no mean deep. But I liked the story and the concept of it. There was a lot of character growth and development in this book, especially Mia, I did find her to be naïve at times. I liked the fact that she does not base her decision about school on what Adam wants and where Adam is going to be. I like the fact that not every single decision that she makes does not revolve around him, but rather she is her own person.
Overall this was a good book and I am looking to reading the sequel, which only recently did I find out that there is actually a sequel. I do find this book to be similar to The Everafter by Amy Huntley, see review HERE. I give this book 5/5 STARS.
