I'm Still Here Je Suis La By Clelie Avit
Oh my stars I fell in love with sweet romance  and I’m not a big romance novel fan. I’m Still Here is just magical. It’s almost like a modern-day Sleeping Beauty with a twist. The twist is that Elsa is in a coma. Elsa had an ice climbing accident that left her family with a difficult decision to make. Thibault is her prince charming and in a way even though she is in a coma and can’t talk to him she is his life saving princess. Thibault is at the hospital because he has to take his mom to see his brother. He can’t bring himself to visit his brother after what he did to land in the hospital so he goes wandering the halls for a place to take a nap. He walks in on Elsa’s room and this is where their lives take very unexpected turns. They saved each other and the story line was very well written. The characters were great, well except for Thibault’s brother couldn’t stand him. The way the story left off I was really hoping for more but I don’t believe there will be more. The author leaves it up to the reader to decide how the story truly ends. The whole time I read this I could totally see it being made into a movie and that would be great. I was always a Me Before You book fan and didn’t think anything would replace it. I’m Still Here replaced it within the first few chapters. I simply fell for this book and can’t thank the author enough!
summary: Elsa has been in a coma for five months. With all hope of reviving her gone, her family and doctors are having to face the devastating fact that it might be time to turn off her life support… They don’t realise that in the past few weeks Elsa has regained partial consciousness; she knows where she is and can hear everyone talking around her bed, but she has no way of telling them she’s there.
Thibault is in the same hospital visiting his brother, a drunk driver responsible for the deaths of two teenage girls. Thibault’s emotions are in turmoil and, needing a retreat, he finds his way into Elsa’s room. Seeing her lying there so peacefully, he finds it hard to believe she is not just sleeping.
Thibault begins to visit Elsa regularly. As he learns more about her through her family and friends, he begins to realise that he is developing feelings for her. And when he talks to her, he can’t help feeling that she can hear his every word…
For Elsa, his visits are like a breath of fresh air. Here is finally someone who speaks to her as if she is a real life person. Who makes her laugh. And who gives her something to fight for…
And so begins a love story that might just save both their lives…
