Here's two teaser sentences from If I Stay by Gayle Forman
"How do you live with that? For a second, I have a fantasy of getting better and getting out of here and going to Mr. Dunlap's house, to relieve him of his burden, to reassure him that it's not his fault."
This book is only 200 pages but the story really speaks to you in that limited amount of text. A lot of people are calling books like this "trauma porn" which I think is kind of degrading. What do you guys think?
I don't think there's a problem with reading books about hard to deal with issues. I actually think it makes for a better read sometimes.
