I was Here by Gayle Forman (expected publication January 27th, 2015 by Viking Children's)

Since there's no cover for this one yet, here's a picture of Gayle Forman probably laughing right after she has written a heart wrenching seen, knowing that it will give all the FEELS to her readers.

Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.



When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.


I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

If you have read Gayle Forman before (the author of If I Stay) you can probably guess how this book is going to be - emotional, well written, full of awesome characters and most importantly, feels. The synopsis sounds so good and intriguing. I can't wait!

  4. Oh my goodness. I knew there was going to be a book, I'd even added it to my TBR, but I hadn't read the synopsis until now. I need this book. And also, an entire box of tissues, I presume. Such an awesome choice!
