I Was Here Gayle Forman Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Cody and Meg were inseparable...
Until they weren’t.
 
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, and some secrets of his own. 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 a pitch-perfect blend of mystery, tragedy, and romance. Gayle Forman has given us an unflinchingly honest portrait of the bravery that it takes to live after devastating loss."
Stephen Chbosky, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    Gayle Forman really captured me with this book. Personally I can relate to this in more ways than one, She gave me a new perspective on life and death and everything and everyone around you.

    This book is amazing! I'm not a big reader but I couldn't put this book down! I feel in love with Gayle Forman's books with If I Stay and Where she went and this is just another great book! I hope she does a sequel so we can find out more!

    I Was Here was fabulously written by Gayle Forman. She wrote Just One Day, Just One Year, Just One Nigh, If I Stay, and Where She went. This book is like no other book she has ever written! This story has a great plot and fantastic, realistic characters you'll fall in love with. Romance 5/5. This book does have cuss words.***
