    vickyh's book review was featured in If I Stay.
    If I Stay is a beautifully written novel, starting off with a girl, Mia choosing between life and death, while her body was in the coma and in the ICU due to a severe car crash in which her father, mother and brother died. Her spirit remained on earth, and somehow was able to see everything that was happening around her. It forced her to determine whether or not it is worth staying or dying. I find this novel extremely relatable, Mia and I have a lot in common, for example we both have a younger brother, and love playing cello and classical music. I love the way character was developed, Mia and Adam, the cutest couple falling in love, while Mia was in coma, Adam went to her bed and told her that he would do anything for her to stay, he would gave up everything to move to New York just to be with Mia. Mia had to choose in between death, or staying strong for Adam. The two of them have completely different hobbies, Mia was in love with classical music so badly, while Adam was a rock player, what I love about their relationship was that they were very different in some ways, yet they were comfortable together. Mia's best friend, Kim, is the best friend that anyone can have. Kim was so supportive and encouraging. Once, Mia wanted to give up on cello, she was the one who persuade her to continue playing. These adorable characters made this novel very emotional and heartfelt. I strongly recommend this book to who love an unique story that will make you think more about death, life, family and love.

    vickyh's book review was featured in Looking for Alaska.
    This is the second John Green book that I have read so far, although this one is very different than the Fault in Our Stars, it is still emotional, heartbreaking and moving. The story is about an ordinary boy, Miles, who went to boarding school, trying to seek more possibilities in his life, and then he met Alaska, a girl of his dream, who was a slightly weird, fun and unpredictable, and it changed his life profoundly. I love how John Green describes emotion and grief, and how he dealt with “death” issues of teenagers. He tackles with the issues without making it too heavy for the readers. I love the way character was developed, it feels real, and easy to related to because Alaska is someone that would remind me of one of my old friends, she is so mysterious, and you can never know what she is thinking about, and what she is trying to do. I would recommand this book to people who love John Green's collection, and who loves reading story related to high school life and teenage issues.

    I enjoyed reading this book, especially the first part of the story, I fell immediately for the main character, John and Savannah, they were adorable together until the hardships in life set them apart. I got really emotional when I read the ending, they were not being together, after everything they had been through, they didn't deserve that. I really like a quotes that John said, "I finally understood what true love meant...love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be." This quotes make me realized that there are many different type of love, it may be painful, but it makes you learn more.
