Where She Went, Review

3 Nov

Where She Went by Gayle Foreman (sequel to If I Stay)

Plot: This book takes place several years after the end of the first book, continuing Adam and Mia’s story from Adam’s point of view. Mia made the decision to stay, just not with Adam, and is making a living as a top-rated cellist. Adam is following his dream all over the country in a band, living the life of a rock star, but all the fame in the world does not mean he is happy.

When their careers take them both to New York, they cross paths for the first time since Mia left. What decision will they ultimately make regarding their future?

Would you recommend this book? Yes. Besides wanting to know what happened to the two of them after the conclusion of the first book, it was also nice to get to know Adam and what he had been going through from his point of view ever since the accident.

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

4 Aug

Nick and Norah’s infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Plot: One night a bass player named Nick meets the daughter of a famous record producer and asks her to be his girlfriend for five minutes. This leads to five more, and suddenly they’re seeming more and more like a couple.

Would you recommend this book? No. Though this book is fast-paced and cleverly written, there’s far too much profanity in it to do anyone good.
