Then chance brings them together again, for one night.
As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future, and to each other.
Rating: 4/5

My thoughts:

Before I begin, am I the only one that sees a Emilie De Ravin look-a-like when you look at the cover?

This book is told from Adam's perspective three years after the accident. I wasn't expecting that when I started the book, so it took me a chapter or two to adjust to that and get into his story and side of things.
Three years later, Adam is now a successfully famous musician along with his band, who now has a famous movie star girlfriend. But it's clear from the start that he's unhappy with his life and suffers from anxiety of constantly being recognized and swarmed by fans. It was interesting to see the struggles that he goes through daily. He has his dream job, and it's not everything he thought it would be.

Like in the first book, we get the present and the past throughout the book. The present is how Adam and Mia handle seeing each other again after three years. Where they have pent up feelings that they've each kept to themselves over the years, feelings of anger and misunderstandings. The past, we see Adam's journey from local band player to famous celebrity. We also get to see what he went through after Mia's accident and so on.

I ended up liking this book and hearing Adam's side of things, as well as getting to find out what happened after the end of the first book. If you liked If I Stay, this is a definite recommendation especially if you're like me and was miffed with the way that book and movie ended.
