Another big thanks to Alexa for hosting this leg of the Gayle Forman read along!! I had an absolutely amazing time re-reading Where She Went and the questions from this read along just had it an even better experience!
QUESTIONS: WEEK 4
In friendships or relationships, the two people in question have a common obsession most of the time. For Adam and Mia, it’s music. Tell me about an example of that in your own life, whether that be with your lover, best friend or family!
Shane and I both love traveling. I don’t know if I’d call it an obsession but it’s something that we both really enjoy and it’s become something that we do together — for holidays, celebrations, weekends, or special occasions — it’s something that’s become really important to us and something we love doing together. I think at times, we can both be pretty shy. At other times, we can both be pretty indecisive. So when we travel, it’s a time for us to experience something new together and have our own adventures!
Adam’s knowledge of Mia’s obsession with music was what prompted his split second decision to play Yo Yo Ma to remind her of it. How do you feel about their relationship armed with this new knowledge?
It shows that they really know each other and that even if Adam doesn’t know the perfect cello music to pick, he knows that that’s what Mia needs to hear. He knows that’s what will make her feel better. That’s where her heart belongs. That’s her comfort music and her home.
A good cry is necessary sometimes. Do you agree or disagree?
Oh, I totally agree. (I may or may not have had a good cry with this book.) Sometimes a good cry lets out old stress (or current stress) and it’s a way for me to get rid of emotions I’ve been holding in. Sometimes you just need to cry it out!
Mia’s big revelation — her gift to Adam — changes everything. With this new knowledge, how do you feel about Mia?
I love that Mia’s been thinking about Adam this whole time. I feel like… You know, I always knew it. WARM FUZZIES.
What so you think lies in the future for Adam and Mia? Will their history — together and apart — affect it in anyway?
They need to be together. They just do. After everything that they’ve been through, it’d be silly for them to reunite and then separate again. Mia and Adam. The dream team!
Sorry for the short answers this week. The end of Where She Went was so perfect and yet kind of wrecked me at the same time.
