Thanks to the lovely people over at Simon & Schuster Australia, the Aussie Readers & Bloggers group was invited to read and review Gayle Forman’s new book, I Was Here, at the beginning of 2015. Check out my review here.
Not only did they invite us to join in on the review blitz, but they also invited us to interview the lovely author as well. You may know her from her tear-jerking books like If I Stay and Just One Day.
Thank you so much to S&S for organising the interview and review blitz. And of course to Gayle for taking the time to answer our burning questions!

I’m not sure about you but I love historical fiction. I would definitely read Gayle’s historical fiction books if she ever writes one!
The full interview will be up on the Aussie Bloggers & Readers blog on Sunday 8th of March 2015. Make sure you check it out!

Synopsis: From the bestselling author of If I Stay – this summer’s YA blockbuster film.
This characteristically powerful novel follows eighteen-year-old Cody Reynolds in the months following her best friend’s shocking suicide.
As Cody numbly searches for answers as to why Meg took her own life, she begins a journey of self-discovery which takes her to a terrifying precipice, and forces her to question not only her relationship with the Meg she thought she knew, but her own understanding of life, love, death and forgiveness.
A phenomenally moving story, I Was Here explores the sadly all-too-familiar issue of suicide and self-harm, addressing it in an authentic way with sensitivity and honesty.
