Giveaway: I Was Here by Gayle Forman

The other day I finally went to see the film adaptation of Gayle Forman's If I Stay. I've heard mixed reviews, but I actually enjoyed it. It was kind of slow, but in a good way. Though I will admit that I didn't cry near as much as I thought I would!

I adored If I Stay when I read it years ago, but, now, my favorite Gayle Forman novel is I Was Here, which releases in 2015. This new novel follows Cody, a girl reeling from her best friend's unexpected suicide:

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.
Intrigued? My arc will go to one lucky entrant here at The Hiding Spot. 

Win It!

Ends October 4, 2014. 1 winner. Open internationally.
