If I Stay by Gayle Forman
If I Stay is a unique story that follows a seventeen year old girl, Mia, whose dreams began to diminish after an extreme car crash. But this story isn't about what happens once she's better; instead it follows Mia's spirit which has left her body. The decisions made by her out-0f-body self are important though, as they effect her chances of making it out alive. Mia's tale, accompanied with flashbacks of before she was injured, creates something that you don't want to put down.
I'm pretty sure this is one of the most interesting books that I've read in a while, as it didn't follow any of the basic plots most books seem to be following lately. It was one of the those books that you stay up all night reading because you just can't wait to see what happens at the end. I would suggest this to anyone who likes a good book with a fresh plot and characters you want to take home with you.
