Notice: This is not the actual book Where She Went by Gayle Forman. Do not buy this Summary & Analysis if you are looking for a full copy. This is a Summary & Analysis Where She Went by Gayle Forman. It had been three years since Mia Hall dumped her high school sweetheart Adam Wilde, and he still had no idea why. Mia was the lone survivor in a car crash that killed both of her parents and her younger brother. She had to get cosmetic surgery and leg surgery. Although she survived, as soon as she was conscious, she made the decision to leave Oregon. She was tired of the sympathetic looks after five months of getting an overload of it while she healed from surgery. Her luck at being accepted to Julliard came just in time. Where She Went is a sequel to Gayle Forman's "If I Stay" and though can be read independently, the problem is, it is so focused on Adam and Mia's troubled romance that character development is lacking for almost all of the characters. This might make the If I Stay a worthy read. After a troubling interview with a reporter who looked into Adam's past, the rock star was forced to make some tough decisions. Should he finally deal with his relationship issues with Mia, stick to groupies or cement his newer relationship with actress Bryn? This Analysis helps to decipher every aspect increasing your understanding of the book more than ever. Before leaving town one night for a huge concert, he made the impulsive decision to see Mia perform live. Three years later, he finally dealt with the emotions he'd had bottled up in his music and his dating life. Temperamental and confused, he knew his decisions would affect the state of the band, his celebrity life and his music. But is his happiness more important than his career? This Analysis of Where She Went fills the gap, making you understand more while enhancing your reading experience.

The linked stories in Kate Walbert's debut collection examine the very contemporary predicament of families without geographic roots. The first half of the book chronicles the life of Marion Clark, a "company wife" who repeatedly packs the household and accompanies her husband around the globe. In the stories that follow, her adult daughter, Rebecca, dutifully attempts to fulfill her mother's thwarted aspirations. From the patchwork of communication that unfolds between mother and daughter, Walbert creates a narrative that is both fractured and lyrical.
Sophie Winters nearly died. Twice. The first time, she's fourteen, and escapes a near-fatal car accident with scars, a bum leg, and an addiction to Oxy that'll take years to kick. The second time, she's seventeen, and it's no accident. Sophie and her best friend Mina are confronted by a masked man in the woods. Sophie survives, but Mina is not so lucky. When the cops deem Mina's murder a drug deal gone wrong, casting partial blame on Sophie, no one will believe the truth: Sophie has been clean for months, and it was Mina who led her into the woods that night for a meeting shrouded in mystery. After a forced stint in rehab, Sophie returns home to a chilly new reality. Mina's brother won't speak to her, her parents fear she'll relapse, old friends have become enemies, and Sophie has to learn how to live without her other half. To make matters worse, no one is looking in the right places and Sophie must search for Mina's murderer on her own. But with every step, Sophie comes closer to revealing all: about herself, about Mina...and about the secret they shared.

The very first novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay now has a beautiful new cover. Sisters in Sanity is a story of sisterhood and self-discovery that’s perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, Morgan Matson, and Siobhan Vivian. Britt Hemphill doesn’t know who she can trust. Her free-spirit mother has disappeared, and her father, once Britt’s partner in crime, has remarried and shipped her off to Red Rock, a so-called treatment facility for troubled girls. And the counselors at Red Rock? They’re completely insane. Britt’s horror at the “therapy”—vicious name-calling and grueling physical labor—is second only to her hatred for the backstabbing patients, who win privileges by ratting each other out. But when V, Bebe, Martha, and Cassie, the four girls who keep Britt from going over the edge, help her sneak out to go see Jeb, her maybe-more-than-friends bandmate, she starts to believe that there may actually be people who can help her—and people that she can help by taking down Red Rocks. Sisters in Sanity perfectly captures the feeling of being trapped in a world that refuses to understand you—and fighting back.
