I just finished Where She Went, Gayle Forman's sequel to If I Stay. While the two books have a surprisingly different tone, the story structure is similar. I admire Forman's effortless way of slipping between past and present tense to tell her story. I want to be very careful not to give away any plot to either of these two books. I'll just say that the sequel is necessarily a bit darker, but is filled with enough bright spots that you will be very glad you took the time to read it. Since Mia is a cellist, I couldn't help but imagine it as a symphony, dark and brooding, but building to a crescendo more celebrated in contrast.
