adam and mia and a third book
May 27th, 2011
Okay. Just to make this crystal clear. And don’t read this if you haven’t read IF I STAY and WHERE SHE WENT because it’s a spoiler. But I keep getting asked if there is a third book for Mia and Adam. And if you have finished WHERE SHE WENT, I have to ask you to ask yourself this:
Do you really want a third book?
I am so flattered that you ask. Am so flattered that you want to spend more time with the characters. But think about the ways books work. They operate on conflict. A third book would either be Adam and Mia in boring middle age. YAWN. Or I’d have to introduce some new conflict. You know, like give someone cancer. Would you want me to do that to them? Have they not been through enough already???!!!!
I love you all for asking. I love you all for wanting to be with them. You can always be with them in the pages of IF I STAY and WHERE SHE WENT or in your own imaginations. But the only reason I even wrote WHERE SHE WENT was because Adam and Mia were banging in my head, telling me that they weren’t happy where I’d left them. They’re happy now. They’re quiet now. I’m happy for them now.
There are some other noisemakers in my head now. They have nothing to do with any of the characters in IIS OR WSW. They are totally new people. I hope to be able to tell you about them soon. I hope you will fall in love with them in a whole different way from the way you have with Adam and Mia.
Thank you for your awesome enthusiasm.
