It's been three years since the devastating accident ... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last 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 each other.
Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I StayWhere She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

My head hurts. My heart hurts. What an emotional roller coaster! I LOVED IT. I don't really think my review will do the book justice, but I have to try and get out how great this book is.

 I thought If I Stay was a fantastic novel but Where she Went is phenomenal. Once in a while a story really touches me and stays with me for a while and this is definitely it. This book was so well written, I myself was feeling depressed at times because I felt as if it was happening to me.

I really loved Adam in the first book, so I was ecstatic when I saw this book was in his point of view. Throughout most of the book, Adam is numb and grieving, but that's more of an understatement.  My heart when out for him.  Gayle does a wonderful job of getting to the reader's feelings, she has a way of  relating to almost all readers. I love it.

This story is so beautiful and heartwarming! I just can't stop gushing about it. You have to read it it you haven't. It will make you cry, laugh and even just sigh, but you won't regret reading it. I have to get myself my own copy of this book as well because I for sure am going to want to reread it.

One of my favorite novels. Ever!

I would say you do need to read If I stay first because it gives you a lot of background information into the characters lives.
