Review

Praise for "I Was Here"
""I Was Here" is a pitch-perfect blend of mystery, tragedy, and romance. Gayle Forman has given us an unflinchingly honest portrait of the bravery it takes to live after devastating loss." Stephen Chbosky, author of the #1 "New York Times" bestselling "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"
Irresistible tear-jerker " New York Times"
A heartbreaking novel about coping with loss from the bestselling author of "If I Stay" "People
"
"As she did in "If I Stay," Forman offers an introspective examination of the line between life and death, and the courage it takes to persist." "Publishers Weekly," starred review
Forman sifts through Cody s shifting psychological landscape with a sure and delicate hand, developing a character that readers will recognize themselves in. . . a relevant book as well as an absorbing one. "BCCB," starred review
"Part tautly paced mystery, part psychological study of suicide and its aftereffects. . . An engrossing and provocative look at the devastating finality of suicide, survivor's guilt, the complicated nature of responsibility and even the role of the Internet in life-and-death decisions." "Kirkus Reviews"
"Suicide has always been a subject in YA literature, and to her credit, Forman handles it sensitively and gracefully, raising important issues of the ethics and morality of the subject. The combination mystery and love story is sure to reach a wide readership and excite essential discussion. . . This latest offering should generate massive teen interest." "Booklist"
"Cody's struggle with grief and complicity is intense and affecting up until an emotional gut-punch of a conclusion. Once this compelling case is closed, what remains is a haunting, elegiac tale about enduring and understanding loss. " "The Horn Book"
"Teens will clamor for this latest offering from the author of "If I Stay."" "School Library Journal"
"Hugely popular Forman, author of the acclaimed "If I Stay" among others, has another best seller here. This novel s strength lies in its depiction of main character Cody, a young woman torn by conflicts but sustained by her own sense of purpose." "VOYA"
Takes tragedy, guilt, friendship, inspiration, heartache, and bravery and mixes them all up in a blender of feelings "Bustle "
Praise for "If I Stay "and "Where She Went"
Beautifully written. "Entertainment Weekly "
An achingly gorgeous portrayal of rejection and rekindled love. "USA Today "
A page-turner, tearjerker and romance all in one. "BookPage"
Pitch-perfect...a moving, skillfully crafted novel. "VOYA," starred review
Praise for "Just One Day" and "Just One Year"
Offering mystery, drama, and an evocative portrait of unrequited love, this open-ended novel will leave fans eagerly anticipating the companion story. "Publishers Weekly," starred review
Readers were enthralled with Forman s "If I Stay" books, and now she s captivated them again as they fall in love with her characters in "Just One Day." NPR s "The Roundtable"
As satisfying as both of these books are, readers are going to wish for a third. "Booklist""
