Entertainment Weekly exclusively revealed the cover of Gayle Forman’s most anticipating new novel, Leave Me, her first book for adults to be released on September 6th!
Check the cover and an excerpt below!
It had been surprisingly easy.
Maribeth had walked downstairs and hailed a cab, carrying only a hastily packed duffel bag with a few changes of clothing and her medications. She’d left her cell phone, her computer — pretty much everything else — at home. None of that felt necessary anymore. She had e-mailed Jason. An apology? An explanation? She wasn’t sure. By the time she was in the cab, the details of her note had already begun to fade.
“Penn Station,” she told the driver. She had not known that would be her destination until the words came out of her mouth.
Twenty minutes later, she was at the train station. Across the street was a branch of her bank. Maribeth was about to pull cash out from the ATM but instead she wandered into the lobby and asked a teller how much cash she could withdraw.
Twenty-five thousand dollars turned out to be surprisingly portable. It fit snugly into her duffel bag.
When she entered the mildewy cavern of Penn Station, she still hadn’t known where she was going. She’d thought maybe some quaint coastal New England town. And then she saw the departure board.
Happy 45th birthday Gayle Forman! Thank you so much for inspiring us, for writing amazing stories and for the great memories. You’re an amazing person and a great author. We love you! We hope you’re enjoying your day. =)

According to The Numbers.Com the If I Stay movie has made $9,271,843 in US DVD/Blu-Ray sales!
The site doesn’t mention worldwide DVD/Blu-Ray sales but hopefully it did just as well!
The website also says that the movie made $75,374,843 at the worldwide box office so I hope that combined with the US DVD/Blu-Ray sales is enough for WB to make Where She Went!
Hopefully we will hear news about Where She Went soon! 🙂
