I know Lisa's not a big contemporary reader but, first of all, I believe everyone should step out of their comfort zone every now and again. Second of all, WHERE SHE WENT by Gayle Forman is the most fantastically sad, brilliant, and wonderful book. There aren't even enough adjectives for me to express how much I loved this sequel and how much I want to share those feels with everyone in the world. And third of all, Yeah, I said sequel. Lisa's read IF I STAY but she hasn't read WHERE SHE WENT and to me that's entirely unacceptable.
So, yeah, I haven't given a ton of reasons why this book is specifically perfect for Lisa and, as such, I'm taking a risk with this one, but I feel I have to take the chance. And I also have to warn Lisa to have tissues nearby. Because, seriously, "sad, brilliant, and wonderful." (Yeah, I just quote myself, so sue me.)
