“This is a simple, beautifully told story of a girl's experiences after a horrific car crash. Forman deals with this difficult topic in a way that is striking and unusual, and thoroughly impressive.”
— Suzanna Hermans, Oblong Books & Music, Rhinebeck, NY
Everything can change in an instant. For Mia, the day started like any other, surrounded by a loving family, an adoring boyfriend, and a bright future filled with music and infinite possibilities. What she never expected is the choice before her now. Caught between life and death, between a happy past and an uncertain future, Mia has to contemplate everything she holds dear and make a choice: to go or to stay.
Heartwrenchingly raw and heartbreakingly romantic, Gayle Forman's international bestseller asks the ultimate question: What would you do if you had to choose?
