If I Stay
Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Mia, who is now seventeen, has no recollection of the disaster; all she can recall is what happened later, when she saw her own wounded body being removed from the wreck. She labors to piece everything together, to understand what she has gained, what she has lost, and the extremely difficult decision she must make. This will alter how you view life, love, and family because it is so exquisitely beautiful and heartbreaking. Mia’s narrative will stick with you for a very, very long time. It is now a big-budget movie starring Chloe Grace Moretz.
