In the beginning of the book "If I Stay" a teenage girl who plays the cello in hopes of getting into Juilliard and her little brother, Teddy, and her parents were driving down a snowy road headed to her grandparents when they were in a car accident. After the accident happened Mia got up and went looking around to find her family. As she was doing so she found her own body lying on the side of the road while a rescue team came and took her into the ambulance. She didn't find any of her family while she was looking around but she decided to go in the ambulance and see what happened to her. When she arrived there she found out that she was in a coma and that both her mom and dad had died. She still does not know what happened to her brother, Teddy, or if he is still alive. At the hospital with her is her grandparents who are very worried about her, and her boyfriend, Adam. Adam plays in a rock band called "Bikini" and that is how Mia met him. Currently in the book the Mia is still in a coma and has been in the E.R for many months. Adams band had been on tour so he has not been able to see her in a long time. When he gets back he hopes to go see her but the nurses in the E.R will only let family in to see her. He gets very emotional about this situation so he decides to go to more extreme measures and brings in a singer to sing in the hallways to try to distract the nurses. It worked for a while but as soon as he got into the E.R and saw Mia on the other side of the room security guards came and got him before he could see her.
