After reading If I Stay and having mixed feeling about that book, I have to admit that I was a bit confused about reading Where She Went. Having read some reviews though, I decided to give it a try.
I started reading this book without reading the synopsis and I waited a much different story. First of all I was surprised to see that the MC was Adam! I was in Mia mood and I read the first chapter fast, waiting for the next to one to be from Mia’s POV. But it wasn’t and it was hard for me to be inside Adam’s head.
Adam is not in a good place and even if there’s been three years, it feels like they broke up yesterday. He was whining a lot and he just didn’t feel like the same person as the one we met in If I Stay. I didn’t really like him in this one.
I was disappointed by the way this story was developing and it was a bit hard to read the book, given that nothing was really happening. I waited for the moment where he’d met Mia again but it took him a while to find her.
But the story didn’t get better when they met! Mia was a whole different person too, and honestly, she was annoying! She talked to him like nothing ever happened and she was light-headed and irritating. He deserved some explanations and she kept avoiding the talk to the very last minute. I get that she experienced something awful, but that didn’t justify her behavior.
So, the book was a disappointment. Where If I Stay left me with a strange but beautiful feeling, Where She Went made me frown.
I know many of you loved this book, so feel free to share your point of view.
