By Gayle Forman

Chapter 17: 7:16 A.M.

  • Adam returns with an iPod.
  • Adam takes Real-Mia's hand and puts the headphones over Real-Mia's ears.
  • And Adam plays Yo-Yo Ma.
  • The music of Mia's favorite cellist, and the person she saw on her first date with Adam, brings Ghost-Mia back into Real-Mia's body.
  • Mia feels so much pain, physical and emotional.
  • But by holding on to Adam's hand and squeezing, Mia feels better.
  • Adam's grip tightens, and he says, "Mia" (17.31).
  • The end.
  • Seriously, guys, that's the end. Clear out.
