This was a quick and somewhat tearful read. The teenage narrator, a talented classical musician in a coma after a car accident, must decide whether to live or die. While this is an affecting book and an interesting premise, I think there could have been more complexity on the death side. But maybe that's just a middle-aged reader of YA lit talking. I think teens will appreciate the drama.
Mia is a likable character, as is her boyfriend, best friend, and everyone in her family, blood and extended. Her parents are punks gone semi-straight, and her boyfriend Adam is also into punk. It's fun to see the comparisons between Mia's orchestra camp/Juilliard bound ways and those of nearly everyone else in her life.
