where she went–the full package
September 7th, 2010
Okay, now that you’ve endured that Teaser Tour, here is the full cover with the jacket copy, which actually gives away pretty much everything the teaser tour did, plus a little excerpt from the book. Plus, if you head on over to the If I Stay site, you can get some behind-the-scenes stills of the video we made (the video should be up pretty soon) take a quiz (it’s supereasy) and even read one of Adam’s lyrics.
No more tormenting after this. I promise.
Here’s the cover again:
And here is the jacket copy:
My first impulse is not to grab her or kiss her or yell at her. I simply want to touch her cheek, still flushed from the night’s performance. I want to cut through the space that separates us, measured in feet—not miles, not continents, not years—and to take a callused finger to her face. I want to touch her to make sure it’s really her, not one of those dreams I had so often after she left when I’d see her so clear as day, be ready to kiss her or take her to me only to wake up with Mia just beyond reach.
But I can’t touch her. This is a privilege that’s been revoked.
It’s been three years since Adam’s love saved Mia after the accident that annihilated life as she knew it . . . and three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard’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, powerful 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.
