If I Stay
Hanna Feller
The main internal conflict is that Mia can't decide whether to stay or die and go to heaven. As she lays in the hospital bed, in total comatos state, she can hear and see everything that is happening around her. The only problem is that she can't tell them she's really alive. She has several flashbacks of great memories with her family and it gets harder and harder for her to decide if she will stay or not. The external conflict is that she can not feel anything and no one is able to hear her. She is in acoma basically and she tells the story in her point of view, but as a ghost outside of her body. She is in grave condition from the accident and the doctors say it's a miracle if she ever wakes up. Th only way she is trying to solve her problem is to flashback to the great memories she's had and remember that she still has family even if her parents and little brother haven't survived. Many friends and distance famiyl come an visit her and tell her that it's okay if she wants to leave and go to heaven, but she is determined to fight and stay. I agree with Mia's decision. I can't say what she chooses, because it will give away the ending of the book. But at different points in the book, she has second thoughts. She thinks about how hard it would be to stay and not have parents and not be able to take care of Teddy. But she realizes that she still has family that will take care of her and be there for her no matter what.
