In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces - to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heart-wrenchingly beautiful, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.
This book was honestly amazing. I can really see why I've seen such positive reviews of it in the blog-o-sphere.
The thought that we might just be able to choose if we stay, or if we go, if given the "right" circumstances, is intriguing, to say the least. It was emotional, too, because of the accident, and it was thoughtful, and it was just really good!
I liked the inner struggles, the flashbacks that weren't/didn't feel like real flashbacks, just what we needed to know, and how they added depth to the story, explaining what we needed to know, and it was just really good!
I also liked the characters relationships, they were good, and real, and I could easily believe that they were real flesh and blood people not ink on a page and imagination.
This was a really good book, and you guys should really check it out!
