Revue de presse
How do you put into words the effect a book like Where She Went
had on you? It's like trying to describe first love or that first mouthful of ice cold water after a run on a hot summer's day. Words are not enough to describe those feelings, the only way people know such a true moment is when they go through it themselves and that's what Where She Went was for me, an indescribable experience. No amount of praise will do it true justice so please bear with me whilst I try and compose my thoughts, I'm still in awe, blinded by this books light. Where She Went
has a much more mature feel to it than If I Stay,
it's regretful, painful and honest.The book is turbulent and raw but, like shattered glass, Gayle Forman handles the matter gently and delicately; holding up the broken fragments into the light for us to inspect and showing us the quiet, fragile beauty to it. Gayle Forman is a poet. (Jess Hearts Books
How can someone make heartache, anguish and gut wrenching devastation so beautiful? I still don't know the answer to this question, I just know that it's a skill Forman has mastered and wow does she weild this weapon well.
I can't describe to you how I feel right now. It's like smiling through tears, speaking when you have nothing to say, dreaming in daylight. Where She Went is utterly breathtaking. It's realising that grief has to power to bring you to your knees, but that love can be the hand that holds you steady whilst you get your balance. A book about love and second chances and living, truly living. I don't think there is enough space or time or words for me to express how much I hope you read this book.
(The Crooked Shelf
An interesting study of relationships where celebrity careers and romance can be a troublesome mix, and, in this case, exacerbated by an overdose of pity. (Irish Examiner
