If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Mia, a high school student with a bright future, has a decision to make, and it’s a big one.  One morning after a snowfall, she and her family are in a terrible car accident, and Mia lives but is terribly injured.  She is caught between life and death, watching herself in the hospital bed and watching all those who care about her as they wait in the hospital for news, and now she must contemplate the only decision she has left–the most important one she’ll ever make.  Should she stay?  Ms. Forman asks powerful and difficult questions as Mia uses her time to think about her life and what she ultimately wants to do.
