I don't think it's the fault of the book or the recording, though. I listened to it at a time when I had tons going on and I'm discovering that I can't listen to audiobooks while doing anything else or I just miss too much of the detail. I'm obviously distracted far too easily.
I'll have to give it another shot when I can focus on it exclusively.
from the publisher: Picking up several years after the dramatic conclusion of If I Stay, Where She Went continues the story of Adam and Mia, from Adam's point of view. Ever since Mia's decision to stay - but not with him - Adam's career has been on a wonderful trajectory. His album, borne from the anguish and pain of their breakup, has made him a bona fide star. And Mia herself has become a top-rate cellist, playing in some of the finest venues in the world. When their respective paths put them both in New York City at the same time, the result is a single night in which the two reunite - with wholly satisfying results.
