Pg. 69: Gayle Forman's "If I Stay"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: If I Stay by Gayle Forman.

About the book, from the publisher:
In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck...

A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make—and the ultimate choice Mia commands.
