In this book Mia, the main character, gets into a car accident and is in an Astral Projection. (An Astral Projection is paranormal interpretation or an out of body experience. Which means that there are different planes of existence. It is associated with a body beyond the physical being.) She is in a coma after the accident and she tries to figure out what is happening. She hops into the back of the Ambulance with her body and goes to the hospital to find her family. After that Mia finds out that her family has died and that she is the only one alive. She starts to consider what life would be like if she woke up. Adam is the one that changes all of that for her. Before Adam arrived she had thought that if she died that her family and friends would recover. Adam goes to see her and puts headphones on her and plays her a piece by her favorite cellist, Yo Yo Ma, it was cellist they went to see on their first date. Mia finds all her strength to squeeze his hand signaling her choice of life.
This book is a real tear jerker. While reading this book, people can find happiness with Adam and Mia before the accident, they can also find sadness with Adam when he finds out about Mia being in the hospital in a coma. People can relate to this book. Many people can find themselves to be the characters in this book. The love will fill your heart. The tears the characters cry will be your tears as well. I suggest this book because I can relate to Mia, a person who lost everything and still ends up wanting to live her life. In the end Mia maybe without her parents and brother but at least she still has her grandparents and friends and Adam. Mia can try to live her life to the fullest. Even at the darkest moment she ended up pulling through.
My grandfather was a strong man he tried his best to fight something most can’t overcome. Everyday I think about how strong he was and how he is my inspiration today. At some point we learn that things happen for a reason and sometimes those things aren’t always the best. We can always try to imagine the best and never hope for the worst because in our lives we never know what is going to happen. In this crazy world we have to live our lives to the fullest everyday because we are never guaranteed tomorrow but we are promised today. Make today your best day yet. Live with your heart open and your mind curious and never stop dreaming. These lessons are what the book teaches us within its wet pages from our fallen tears.
