Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Where She Went by Gayle Forman is a novel told from the point of view of rock star, Adam Wilde. He has everything that most people want: he is the vocalist and guitarist for the chart-topping band "Shooting Star," has a celebrity girlfriend Bryn, and has tons of adoring fans. However, Adam is far from happy, struggling to get through everyday because of his breakup with his ex-girlfriend Mia Hall, a cello prodigy. Mia has her share of struggles too; her entire family was killed in a car crash that she narrowly suriveved. But when the two happen to meet in New York City, they both embark on a journey to explore the city and their past relationship. This book is written in a format with all the even chapters being about Adam in the present while the odds are about what he went through in the past. This book is a real page turner because it is a romance along with giving the reader a glance into the world of the "rich and famous," showing that everything isn't how it seems. Another cool thing about this book is in some chapters, there are some lyrics from Shooting Star's first album Collateral Damage, which Adam write about his feelings when Mia broke up with him. So go out and read this book!
