  "An Emotional read" by nbaker (see profile) 06/03/15

"If I Stay" was an emotional story that pulled at my heart. A lone family survivor of an automobile accident leaves a teenage girl teetering on death's door. Her voice is removed from her ailing body and you witness her eye-opening experience as she watches her friends and family mourn the loss of her parents, younger brother and possibly her. She tries to balance what she might have to live for and the ease of joining her family that has left her. She takes you on a journey to the chords that made up her musical family and how they blended together to make a four-some that overflowed in trust, love and companionship. But her will to hang on and the strength to do so is quickly fading. This was a very short read but long on message. Having just lost a loved one to ALS just 6 months ago, I had to watch her make the same decision. It was an emotional roller coaster for everyone then and this story just reiterated that there could come a time when we all are given a choice -- "Do I go or do I stay?"
