Blog Tour: Interview with Gayle Forman

As part of an exciting opportunity with Simon & Schuster Australia, some of us Aussie bloggers were given the chance to interview the fabulous Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay, Just One Day, and most recently I Was Here.

I Was Here was a book that I enjoyed very much, in fact, it has been my favourite book of Forman's so far, and I was pretty excited about being able to interview the author of such a gem!

We all got to ask Gayle one question; these questions will be revealed throughout the week and the full interview with all the questions will be posted on the Aussie YA Bloggers blog on March 8th (link to that will be below).

Without further ado, here's my question! Thanks to Kelly @ Diva Booknerd for making all the lovely graphics!

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-familar issue of suicide and self-harm, addressing it in an authentic way with sensitivity and honesty.
Have a look at the full interview when it goes up on March 8th here!
