Donated by: Shannon Messenger

Please be forewarned--unless you're a zombie, you will cry when you read these books. I feel like I should package them with a carton of Kleenex, but I don't think that would mail very well. But they're SO BLINKING GOOD. These are the kind of books that change you.

Prize details:
The winner will receive signed paperbacks of IF I STAY and WHERE SHE WENT by NYT bestseller Gayle Forman.

About IF I STAY:
In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck...

A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make—and the ultimate choice Mia commands.

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.
