From the bestselling author of If I Stay. This characteristically powerful novel follows eighteen-year-old Cody Reynolds in the months following her best friend's shocking suicide.

As Cody numbly searches for answers as to why Meg took her own life, she begins a journey of self-discovery which takes her to a terrifying precipice, and forces her to question not only her relationship with the Meg she thought she knew, but her own understanding of life, love, death and forgiveness.

    Comments about I Was Here:

    I love the meaning and depth and rawness of this book. It has a similar feel to "13 Reasons Why" - which i still found I enjoyed more - and I love that. Definitely not a light-hearted story, full of a lot of emotion. The thing I found I loved about this story is the realism of it and how true it is to the topic - I like that the ending was not fairytale, as it was never going to be, and that it doesn't end with things being crystal clear, because how could suicide be crystal clear? Defs reccommend it for young adults.
