For the main character, If I stay by Gayle Forman, most of this book is literaty an out of the body experience.
Mia fell in love with the cello when she was around ten years old, and have been playing ever since. That was how Adam found her, he saw her play at school. After a while of getting to know each other, it developed into a relationship. It was founded on a mutual love of music, even though their style of music was very different. Adam got easily excepted into Mias family, and everything seemed to go really well. But since this is a book, something other that sunshine and roses must happen…
The car Mia, her parents and her little brother are in, crashes. This is where the out of the body experience comes into play. Her parents die from the impact, her little brother dies soon after. Mia however, survives, sort of. She is in a coma after having massive surgery several times. Mia isn’t a ghost, because she can’t float through walls and doors. But she is in different state of being, she can see and hear everything just as normal when she walkes around. The only problem is that she is invisible to everyone else. Her body lies in the hospital bed. She is faced with the most important question of them all: Should she stay?
I liked this book, so much in fact, that the day after I finished it, I borrowed the next one (Where she went) at the library.
