About this item

A 17-year-old girl named Mia must decide whether to fight for her life or surrender to death after she is badly injured in a car accident. Mia is able to watch as her body is tended to by paramedics and rushed to the hospital, and her observations of this process are interspersed with memories of her family and friends. Her thoughts wander from her love of classical music and the cello to her developing relationship with her boyfriend to the unspoken bonds she shares with her family, as Gayle Forman expertly weaves the tactile details of the hospital with Mia's ethereal assessment of what's important in her life. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books of 2009.

Prepare to cry and rethink life. This book shows how life really can change in a second. Just when everything seems perfect, you never know what is going to happen, so always be thankful and treat everyday like it is your last.
