Where She Went by Gayle Forman

A sequel that works equally well as a stand-alone title, "Where She Went" is about the three years since the action of "If I Stay." I'd loved that book, and was surprised when this book was told from boyfriend Adam's point of view. I was also surprised by what's happened in the mean time.

Adam's got everything a guy should want: he's a rock star with serious money, his girlfriend is a gorgeous and smart movie star. But he's tired of the tabloids, and he's lost the spark for his music. While the last three years have been a rocket ride, gravity's kicking in and Adam's parachute isn't opening. Sometimes a perfect facade hides deep, tragic cracks.

Audiobook reader Dan Bittner did an amazing job on this one - he's really got a talent for narration and brought just the right edge to Adam's voice.

And yeh, I cried.
