It might be a YA novel, and pretty easy to read, but it sure has a strong plot and conflict. The writing is also pretty good, if you ask me.
(Lily, I know how much you love this.)
Anyways, as you can see in the cover, there's a question: what would you do if you had to choose? I'm not done with the book yet, so I still don't know what role that question plays in the plot, but I think I have an idea of how.
Mia, a seventeen year-old girl has all her future figured out: She wants to leave her small-town to attend Juilliard, in New York City, and become a professional cellist. Besides, she has a loving boyfriend, who is a member of a punk band, and a loving family.
Sounds perfect right? Well, it all shatters when a fatal accident during a road trip with her family kills everyone.
Or that´s what she thought.
After the accident, she has an off-body experience, and is able to see the remains left by the accident.
Sure, it sounds pretty cool to be outside your body, but it ain´t fun when you have to witness the bodies of your family (and yourself), or your car in flames.
Well, I think that the question comes into place right there. She probably has to make a decision of what to do with her life now. That is pretty scary all by itself. Imagine having must of your pieces put together, and because of an accident, you´re forced to create a new plan.
So, I was wondering, what is your opinion on this.
If you one day, without warning, you are forced to make a decision on what to do with your life, what would you do?
