About the book:
One moment, a talented cellist Mia sits in the car with her family. Suddenly, she leaves her body and observes smashed cars and bodies of her parents and a younger brother, who is driven off by the ambulance. Mia is taken to the hospital and there, while her body is in coma, she thinks of the past and tries to decide whether to fight for her life. Through Mia’s thoughts and recollections, we become familiar with her teenage life, her love towards classic music and her relations with family, friends and her boyfriend, Adam. Mia levitates between the life and death, and the surrounded friends and family have only one plea: Please do not die.
