So I’m not sure if this book is young adult or not but I own it and I wanted to read it…again. I think it is just because “The Fault in our Stars” is and they run along the same lines. Now I’ve read the book and seen the movie and they’re both good in my opinion but if I have to be honest, the book is better. The books are always better than any movie that follows them, in my opinion.

So if any of you have heard of this story, you know it is about a quiet girl who basically falls in love with a boy who she never thought would’ve noticed her. They both lead different lives. She’s the quiet and shy one who is into classical music and she hopes to get a scholarship to a prestigious school. And Adam, the love of her life, is the lead guitarist of his own band and leads a more rock-n-roll kind of lifestyle. They fall in love just like you would expect but they have a tough road ahead of them. Mia must choose between her scholarship or Adam. But she doesn’t even get to make the decision because of a fatal car crash involving her parents and brother.
Of course her parents die in the crash and she is left alone with her brother. To make the book an even more “on-the-edge” kind of read, Mia is caught in a dimension between life and death and only she has the power to wake up or pass on.
It might sound like your everyday run of the mill kind of love story where the guy and the girl fall in love but they are too different to really be together in reality but they make it somehow and when they do, something terrible happens that leaves the readers on the edge of their seats wondering what will happen. Even though we already know what will happen. Even with all of that wonderful plot and story line, I still love this book! I’m a sucker for books like this but I don’t know why!?
If you haven’t read it but have watched the movie, I would suggest reading the book. You may like it and you may hate it to the very tip of your core. But at least you will have read something new!
