Hmmm. I'm really not sure what to rate this book, so I'm not going to rate it with stars. I struggled with If I Stay but decided to read the sequel to give the series another chance. There's just too much graphic content I can't get past in both books. If you want your teen to read all about sex and rock and roll then here it is. I really think this second book should be adult fiction. The characters are now three and four years out of high school and the narrator Adam is living a mature lifestyle of the rich and famous. While the story is interesting and Gayle's writing is good; it is way too edgy for me. Call me crazy, I just wouldn't want my teen reading these books.
