In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen -year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces — to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make.
As she watches herself being treated in the hospital and sees her friends and grandparents grappling with the accident, Mia remembers happy times with her best friend, her adoring boyfriend, and her loving family. And she remembers her passion for music and her promising future as a cellist. Now Mia has to figure out what she's lost, what she has left, and whether or not to fight to survive.
A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make, and the ultimate choice Mia commands.
Now a major motion picture starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.
