I just finished reading the book If I Stay, by Gayle Forman, and I will admit that I cried through most of it. I found that it was a very heart-rending book to read and one that will relate to teens. If you do decide to read this novel however, it would be best to do it in private, unless you're okay with people seeing you break down into tears. Be sure to also read The Story Behind The Story in the back of the book.
I felt the same way, Monica! There's a sequel to it too, Where She Went. -- Ms. T I've just recently read it, and I understand why it's always checked out. It's an amazing book that has some really interesting perspectives to things. It really challenges you to look at stuff in ways you don't normally tend to which, in my opinion, made it a great read. Monica: A few days ago My family and I camped out with a group in the desert. It was really fun and we all had a great time. Ms. T It hasn't been very desert-like here! It's been pouring torrents every day this week -- rainbows one minute, and run for shelter the next.
