Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren"t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything-so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg"s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there"s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, and some secrets of his own. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can"t open-until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend"s death gets thrown into question.

I Was Hereis Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

    Absolutely loved this novel. It was fast-paced and brilliantly written. This is the real deal about questions that will never be answered, emotions that are never talked about, and true friendships that last a lifetime. Fantastic!

    When I first picked out the book I wasn't sure how well I was going to like it, but after getting into it and after reading the entire book I realized it was utterly beautiful, was well written, and definitely worth the read.
