After the runaway success of the Fault in Our Stars movie, which grossed over a quarter of a billion dollars worldwide, everyone seems to be looking for the next book to film adaptation they can really get their feels on with.
Enter If I Stay.
Based on the bestselling novel by Gayle Forman, If I Stay boasts megastar Chloe Grace Moretz and an heartbreaking exploration of that fickle mistress, choice.
Now we’re not saying that the film will be disappointing, in fact we think it’ll be a hit. But you know, the book is always, kind of, possibly, in our opinion, better. So why not grab a copy today…
by Gayle Forman
‘Just listen,’ Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel.’ I open my eyes wide now. I sit up as much as I can. And I listen. ‘Stay,’ he says.
Everybody has to make choices. Some might break you.
For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they’re all about a future full of music and love, a future that’s brimming with hope. But life can change in an instant. A cold February morning …a snowy road …and suddenly all of Mia’s choices are gone. Except one. As alone as she’ll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all.
Haunting, heartrending and ultimately life-affirming, If I Stay will make you appreciate all that you have, all that you’ve lost – and all that might be. Includes interviews with the stars of the film, Chloe Moretz and Jamie Blackley.
