My Writen Review: I usually don't dislike books...but I was not a fan of this one at all.
Mia had a decent life, a nice family, two good friends, a promising future...But that all changed on the family's car ride to the grandparents for lunch on a snow day. Here whole family has gotten into an extremely fatal car accident and Mia's parents and little brother, Teddy, are all dead. But Mia is still alive, but she is in a coma. Mia must choose weather to live or die. This whole book has constant memory flashbacks from when Mia was 5, or 15, which makes this book confusing. It got annoying and I wouldn't recommend this book. I chose to read this because it is very popular, and I indeed thought I WOULD like it, but I was wrong. This book was a big disapointment. As for the ending, I wont spoil it...but I just want to let you know, it is VERY confusing. So confusing, that I had to search on google weather she chose to live or die. There was an answer...but I was also told that there will be a sequel in 2011. I might read it, but I am not sure, seeing as I didn't like this one.
