TEEN SING for Gayle Forman’s If I Stay

Music flows throughout this book, and so we’re going to let the music flow for Books & Books’
in honor of author
who will be reading and discussing her award-nominated novel,
If I Stay
(Dutton, $8.99)

Sunday, April 11, 5pm
Books & Books Coral Gables

Click here to check out the If I Stay playlist. Then click here to enter our TEEN SING contest. And then keep reading to find out more about both of them.

Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident, but in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck…

If I Stay is a story about how we transform our lives.

And music plays a huge part in If I Stay, because music plays a huge part in how we transform our lives. It’s what brings Mia and Adam together. It binds Mia and her parents, even though their tastes are so totally different. It’s provides notes that propel Mia through her life.

So, music is going to play a huge part in our event for author Gayle Forman: TEEN SING is your chance to sing/perform a song from the If I Stay playlist – or any song that has transformative power for you.

Solo performances only. Or maybe a duo. Acoustic instruments only, please. Click here to sign up. Performance slots are limited, so sign up today. And there will be prizes! We’re not judging pitch or timber. This isn’t American Idol. We’re just looking for the song that comes from the heart, that embraces the If I Stay spirit.

There are a ton of songs in the book, some indie rock, some classical, and some that qualify as none of the above. Some bands you might know, and other artists you might never heard of. As for why Bette Midler’s Wind Beneath My Wings is included, you’ll have to read the book to find out.

So, click here to read an excerpt.
