Jennifer Echols; Forget You




















ARC

Reading level: Young Adult
Publisher: MTV; Original edition (July 20, 2010)



Synopsis

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.


My Review

Oh Gosh this was a good one! Zoey seemed to project her self imperfections in a negative way. Despite her oh so perfect Outer shell that most people see. She doesn't want anyone to see the side where her mother has gone insane and her father could careless about her and her mother since he was having an affair and now is marrying little 24 yr old trophy wife. Zoey decided to lose her virginity to Brandon one of her best guy friends. She seems to create some weird fake yet not fake relationship with him. The whole time in denial that he isn't what she needs. You can't make someone into something they aren't.

  After finding her mother in a suicide attempt. Zoey does what she knows best, destruction. Fast forward through the night Zoey wakes up not really remembering what happened that night only a few bits and pieces. Pieces that include Doug. She then has to pretend that she remembers everything that has happened. So when Doug shows up acting like the are together. Zoey doesn't know what to do. What really happened?

I love Forget You. Jennifer Echols is amazing! Forget You has some zing. I would recommend this to anyone. Though there is a few steamy scenes. You need to get this one. Forget You is going to be one of the greats of 2010. hehe atleast to me :)

I haven't read any of Jennifer Echolls' books yet, but the premise of this one sounds intriguing. I am already so curious to find out what happened with Doug that night. I'll have to keep my eye out for this one.
