Gayle Forman, whose If I Stay was #8 on USA Today’s bestselling books of 2014 list, is celebrating the release of her newest novel, I Was Here, on sale this week from Viking Children’s Books. People called the book “a heartbreaking novel” in a review, and it’s been on buzz lists from USA Today, Bustle, and Seventeen. Forman’s two-week tour for I Was Here centers on the theme of friendship and includes guest appearances from fellow authors such as Maggie Stiefvater, Sarah Dessen, Ruta Sepetys, Margaret Stole, Lauren Oliver, A. S. King, and Jennifer E. Smith, among others. Penguin Teen launched a photo app on www.iwasherebook.com which allows fans to upload their own images or create from a template to join in the #IWASHERE conversation.
