Picking up several years after the dramatic conclusion of If I Stay, Where She Went continues the story of Adam and Mia, from Adam's point of view. Ever since Mia's decision to stay - but not with him - Adam's career has been on a wonderful trajectory. His album, borne from the anguish and pain of their breakup, has made him a bona fide star. And Mia herself has become a top-rate cellist, playing in some of the finest venues in the world. When their respective paths put them both in New York City at the same time, the result is a single night in which the two reunite - with wholly satisfying results.
**4.75 Adam makes this book Stars**
Where She Went turned out to be a better book, for me, than the first book. If I Stay is the first book in the series and I ended up giving it 3 stars. I had a hard time connecting with the first book but this book being told from Adam’s POV was captivating.Three years have passed since the accident and Mia and Adamare no longer together. Both have moved on with their personal and musical lives. Adam happens to stumble upon one of Mia’s concerts and from that concert they begin to work out what went wrong all those years ago.
I listened to the audio of this one and enjoyed that I could cook dinner and not interrupt my “reading.” I threw my headphones in and stuck the iPhone in my pocket while I did household chores. If you haven’t gotten hooked on audios you really should give them a try. On another note, I still haven’t seen the movie- If I Stay but I plan to because I like movies that makes you cry. And one last thing, yes, Oregon is still mentioned in this book which is always a plus for me.
