Late to the IF I STAY Party but glad I'm finally here @GayleForman !
Was up quite late reading it, because I need to catch up. Matilly & her friend Ava and I will all go see the movie together. We're pretty excited.
Talked to Matilly on the phone last night (I'm out of town) and she was like, "Daddy had to hug me in certain sad parts, Mom. I'm just warning you. Because I know you're not here and don't have anyone to hug you if you get sad."
Also, I think Gayle Forman is pretty much an excellent, excellent lady.
