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.


There was an excerpt I have read and it was so (damn) good! The story sucked me in and I couldn't stop but then it's only like two-three chapters, I think? The synopsis is intriguing and at the same time, promising! I can't wait, like really. THIS. IS. GOING. TO. BE. AWESOME.

What's the book you're dying to read? I'd love to know! :)


  1. This one sounds amazing! I loved If I Stay but I'm a bit hesitant to read Where She Went. This one though really piqued my interest so I might wait on it. :)

    1. Hello Joy! I still need to finish If I Stay and its been great so far, thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
