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. With her life 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.
The first time that I found out Jennifer Echols was coming out with a new book this summer, I couldn't surpress my squeel of glee. All I can say is that I was not dissappointed with this one.
Forget You was truly beautiful. From the first page, I read it straight through, and couldn't put it down.
I loved the characters in this. Zoey comes from a not-so-perfect family. When her mom tries to commit suicide, she is forced to live with her dad who knocked up a 24 year old. Through the book you can really see how much Zoey is hurting, and yet how strong she is.
As for Doug, all I can say is LOVE HIM!!! He comes from a not-so-perfect background of his own and the tension he shares with Zoey was passionate, intense, consuming and beautiful all at once. You can really feel something between them from the first time they are together, and it only gets stronger.
Forget You was all around amazing. I couldn't get through it fast enough, and when I did finish, I was wishing I din't because I wanted more so bad. It's one of those books that everyone should read.
