Where She Went

By Gayle Forman

In this sequel to If I Stay, Where She Went was absolutely wonderful. Adam and Mia have gone their separate ways, Mia in New York playing cello, Adam the lead guitar for a popular band on tour. When he finds himself alone in NY for the night something draws him to the theatre were Mia is playing. This leads to a tour of the city's best spots, while they rekindle their old romance. Adam has made many mistakes, so he is not very amirable as a character, but I think that he is still list worthy because they are so good for each other. In If I Stay Adam promises he will do anything, even leave her alone, if she doesn't die. She leaves him to go to Juliard, and it totally destroys him. He write beautiful, angry songs about his love for her and as they walk through her city, reliving their past, they are exactly what one another needs.
I believe that he is at least a notable male character, if not list worthy, because he is a gorgeous rock star in love with a classical cellist, willing to do anything and be anything for her. While he isn't perfect, he is almost more realistic for his faults and he had some truly amazing moments.
I would seggest this book to anyone looking for a sensitive, musician type guy. And I think he just might be list worthy.
