Gayle Forman follows up her heart-wrenching If I Stay with the continuation of Mia and Adam’s story. Forman brings their next chapter to life through Adam’s eyes. With the clever use of flashbacks, touching song lyrics that start each chapter and spot-on insider details about New York City, Forman will thrill readers new and old. Mia and Adam’s second novel is as stunningly memorable as the first.

When young classical music maestro Mia shattered Adam’s punk rock heart, he put all of his emotions into his music and created an album that skyrocket his band, Shooting Star, to fame. Now he’s living a rock star lifestyle, complete with starlet girlfriend and a bad reputation to boot. But when Adam finds himself in New York City for an evening, he can’t help but attend Mia’s classical music concert at Carnegie Hall. The pair reunite for one evening to try to mend broken bridges, but will this reunion end in something more? (PENGUIN GROUP, April, 378 pp., $16.99, 9780525422945, HC, 14& up)
