tl;dr I really liked this story and the way it unfolded. I would definitely suggest it to others. [[MORE]]
Description (ok i gotta snag this one from Goodreads cause I don't want to give away anything) 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...
I loved this story. It was so well done. I mean, right away this accident happens. Maybe 2 chapters in. The first chapter introduces you to the main character and her family, with just enough info about them to decide you like them and could care about them, then BAM accident.
And you're just like "WAIT I don't even know these people yet!" So of course you continue to read. And as you're reading (from Mia's perspective), you see what is going on at the accident site and where they take her body, but then she gives details of her life to you. She gives you her memories. So at first, the first couple of chapters you're reading it, you're like "Ok this is sad but its not killing me like The Fault in Our Stars"
But then you keep reading. Because of course, you have to know what happens. You keep reading and it gets harder and harder. Mia keeps giving you parts of her past, she keeps giving you her memories. The experiences she had with her little brother, her parents, her boyfriend, her grandparents... She gives them to you little by little but she's also showing you whats happening to her in the present. Or, anyway, whats going on with her family and friends who are coming to visit. And you just read it and half way through the story you're like...
You begin to think how unfair it is, what happened to her and her family and whats going on with the story and where its going. You start becoming invested in the characters, and in Mia, and it starts attacking your feels. You keep reading and you just start crying big fat tears of sadness and feels and you can't stop reading it.
So then you read it and you finish it, and you're left drained from crying and becoming so involved with these characters. Its a fantastic story. Its so well done. And if i say anything more I'll end up giving something away, SO GO READ IT!
