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.

3.0 I Was Here
I Was Here is a good book with an important message about picking up the pieces after a loved one commits suicide. It is raw. It is visceral.

3.5 Bringing light to mental illness
I'm becoming more and more of a fan of Gayle Forman's the more I read of her. She does a good job capturing what it's like to be a teenager again: the emotions, the relationships, the fears and hopes and dreams. Her writing is easy to get through but is fun and engaging to read. I Was Here, to me,...

5.0 Story of Friendship, Love, Family & Learning to Let Go of Those You Love
I was Here is written by Gayle Forman. I have actually never read any of her work in the past but after reading this book I definitely plan to read more of her work in the future. The type of story written about Cody and Meg is something I am familiar with. I struggled to actually start reading t...

3.5 Book 72/100: I Was Here by Gayle Foreman
3.5Throughout this whole book, I wavered between giving it 3 and 4 stars.It ultimately missed the four-star mark because I thought the romance was kind of gross and creepy, and it felt somewhat extraneous and obligatory in a book that draws its strength from its examination of friendship.It's also a...

I had high expectations for this book after If I Stay and Where She Went, and I wasn’t disappointed. I Was Here definitely won’t be for everyone, but parts of it resonated with me in a way I didn’t expect. There’s a lot going on in this book, both up front and beneath the surface – about secrets, fa...
