I’m Still Here – Clélie Avit ★★★★★

Blurb:
Elsa has been in a coma for five months. With all hope of reviving her gone, her family must face the devastating fact that it might be time to turn off her life support.

What they don’t know is that in the past few weeks Elsa has regained partial consciousness – she just has no way of telling them.

Thibault is in the same hospital visiting his brother and, seeking a retreat, finds his way into Elsa’s room. When he begins to talk to her, he doesn’t realise she can hear every word – and that he is giving her a reason to wake up.

And so begins a love story that might just save both their lives…

My Review:
Wow! What a beautiful story with a gorgeous cover.
A beautiful story that I would recommend to you all!
I’m Still Here is easy to read, fast paced and contains short chapters. I managed to finish this story within a day and it’s not often I can do that! I’m Still Here is told through the two main characters Thibault and Elsa. Some people are just meant to meet and these are one one of those couples. I understand it may be a bit of an emotional read for some readers as it written and partly told through a coma victim but at the same time it is a story of hope, love, longing and believing.

I wouldn’t have normally picked this book to read for myself but I am so glad that I did. This is the prefect book that could also get readers out of a book slump. The translator of this book has done a brilliant job so thank you to the wonderful Lucy Foster. The only other author I could compare this book to is JoJo Moyes. So, if you enjoyed JoJo Moyes books you will enjoy this one. A well deserved five stars. Brilliant.
