This is the sequel to If I Stay, which I loved. This one was worth the listen, but not nearly as good. The overall premise is for Adam to work through the reason that Mia left him, which I felt should have been obvious so the build-up to the resolution was a letdown for me. The entire story was predictable with nothing shocking happen. I did like that fact that the first book was from Mia’s perspective and this one was in Adam’s voice. In my opinion, If I Stay did not need a sequel and the future would have been better left to the reader’s imagination. However, when there is a sequel, especially to a book you enjoyed, you have to read it.
