Sequel to If I Stay
"My first impulse is not to grab her or kiss her or yell at her. I simply want to touch her cheek, still flushed from the night's performance. I want to cut through the space that separates us, measured in feet - not miles, not continents, not years - and to take a callused finger to her face...But I can't touch her. This is a privilege that's been revoked.
It's been three years since Adam's love saved Mia after the accident that annihilated life as she knew it...
...and three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is L.A. tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other. "
This sequel is told from Adam's perspective. I was really excited to read this book, since I adored the first one. I have to say I was a little disappointed. It was actually kind of boring. Seemed like one of those sequels that the author writes more because their fans have demanded it, and not because they really have more of the story to tell. Don't get me wrong, it was ok...but, I'm glad I didn't pay for this book, but got it at the library. I will say that it did have a satisfying ending though. I am still looking forward to the film adaptation of If I Stay.
