Giveaway: WHERE SHE WENT (ARC) by Gayle Forman

Yes, you read that title correctly. I was extremely lucky and incredibly grateful to have been given an ARC of this long-awaited sequel to If I Stay. I held on to it and cherished it for a few months, but I think it's time that another reader can read it and pass it along.

And if you're curious... let's just say I LOVED this book. It is definitely a worthy sequel and it is utterly breathtaking. And trust me, you will totally fall in love with Adam.

That said, a requirement for this giveaway is that if you win, you must promise to review this book on your blog (if you have one) or Amazon or Goodreads (get one), or if you absolutely can't to do any of these, you must promise to pass it along to a friend/blogger/fellow booklover. I don't want this ARC to just be sitting on another person's TBR bookshelf, unread, until April.

And because I am paying for shipping, the physical ARC will only be shipped to US/Canada mailing addresses. However, I will also give away a PREORDER of Where She Went from The Book Depository (international).

Prizes: ARC of Where She Went by Gayle Forman (US/Canada), and a Preorder of Where She Went (International)

Book summary ~sequel to If I Stay:

It's been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future and each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance
