Forget You by Jennifer Echols
This book defies reviewing I tell you! Maybe I'm too shocked at the beauty of this story (Quite Possible). Or I'm just feeling the need to go find someone else to share the beauty of this book with. Anyone up for grabs? Yet I'm still sitting here thinking, "Did I just get this now, Good God Woman! You've read this book Five times! Get it Together!" Maybe that's the Beauty of a good book, it never get's old. Here's the Blurb:
Why can't you choose what you forget . . . and what you remember?
There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four- year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. Feeling like her life is about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon.
But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people— suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them?
Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her.
Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug.
I give this Book Four Stars. I Love me some Doug.
