Kate has always been the good girl. Too good, according to some people at school—although they have no idea the guilty secret she carries. But this summer, everything is different…
This summer she’s a counselor at Cumberland Creek summer camp, and she wants to put the past behind her. This summer Matt is back as a counselor too. He’s the first guy she ever kissed, and he’s gone from a geeky songwriter who loved The Hardy Boys to a buff lifeguard who loves to flirt--with her.
Kate used to think the world was black and white, right and wrong. Turns out, life isn’t that easy…
It's true. Anywho, moving on. I enjoyed the cameo appearances of Jordan, Sam, Will and Parker. It was great to see them all again, and it shows that Kate really was trying to be nice. Two points for her! I also seriously adored the camp setting-- I've been a counselor, and I think that it was a fairly honest portrayal. But our camp has "girl" sides and "boy" sides. Far as I know, no one crosses that. ;P
Onto Matt. I think that he was a good fit for Kate, because he kind of mellows her out, and she needed that. The character growth for both of them was phenomenal. Just sayin'! Matt was really sweet, and I adore his big family. I love when there are large families in books, especially when they all have fairly healthy relationships with each other. Plus, they totally make me giggle!
I wasn't a particularly big fan of the secondary characters, but I definitely appreciate what all of them bring to the table. All in all, Things I Can't Forget was a good read that I recommend for when you're in a mellow kind of mood.
Matt is the rock. He makes me want to stand up for what I think is right. Maybe all that matters is that he's right for me, and I'm right for him. ~ Pg. 274
