I Was Here

I Was Here - Gayle Forman So cheers for this another heartfelt writing by Gayle Forman. huhu. I Was Here is another story of loss(just like If I Stay) but in a different way. Cody is challenged in accepting the death of her best friend, Meg, who committed suicide.

It feels so refreshing to read a Gayle Forman book where the story doesn't really focuses on a boy-girl kind of love(but there's a touch). And I didn't expect the book to be sort of a mystery coz the story progresses by unfolding the truth behind Meg's death. Every character is supporting each other and that's what hold the story. And while I am reading this, I am feeling sad. If you read the author's note, you will know that the story of Meg isn't made up. It's based on a real life story of girl named Suzy. I feel sad coz these poor girls/boys will not be able to see anymore how wonderful life is. Society must be really aware of these. and who knows, maybe one day, we'll be able to help someone, who is feeling the same as Suzy and Meg. Gayle Forman really did a great job delivering the message to her readers.
