Galley? Yes
Would you like to nominate this book for Teens’ Top Ten? Yes
If yes, what makes this book special enough to be nominated for Teens’ Top Ten? This book caught my attention and wouldn't let go. You can expect the car crash from the summary, but you don't expect what comes after. Gayle Forman writes well, quite well actually. And I find reading her book delighting
What did you like or not like about the cover? Did the cover reflect the contents? The cover was pleasant, very pretty. It picked at my attention and helped me pick up the book in the first place. But it didn't have much to do with the story. But I think the trade off is better to keep this cover.
Describe the most compelling aspect of the book. Will she chose life or death?
Were you disappointed with the book for any reason? If so, what was disappointing?
Did you finish the book Yes
How would you rate this book? 4 Better than most
Please write a short annotation for this book if you think it should be on the Teens Top Ten List. 17- year- old Mia wakes up one snow day and her family goes for a drive. But a barreling two ton truck can change every thing.
