WOW: I Was Here by Gayle Forman


This weekly meme is hosted by Breaking The Spine.

I haven't done one of these in quite a while! There are a great many books I'm waiting on, so this was a tough one to decide for this week.

I Was Here by Gayle Forman
Publication Date: January 27, 2015
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Page Count: 288 pages
Summary: Cody and Meg were inseparable. Two peas in a pod. Until . . . they weren't anymore. When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question. I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

I loved If I Stay/Where She Went and I'm planning to read Just One Day/Just One Year as soon as possible, but this one sounds just as good. Gayle Forman does heartbreak and sad so well.  I want January to come fast!!

What are you waiting on for this week?
