Zoey would like to forget a lot about her life. Her father has knocked up his twenty four year old girlfriend. Her mom has had a nervous breakdown and she is afraid that the whole town will find out what happen. Especially since bad boy Doug is taunting her at school. Her whole life feels like one huge mess, so Zoey fights back the only way that she knows. She tries to become the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to her football star boyfriend Brandon.
That is until Zoey is in a car crash and she can't remember what happened the night before. All that Zoey can remember is Doug pulling her from the crash. He keeps on referring to what happened earlier that night, but it is a blank slate for her. Zoey is quickly losing grip on all of the important details in her life, because instead of her memories being filled of Brandon, there is only Doug.
Zoey was an awesome character. She could be stubborn at times, but what girl isn't like that? I really could relate to her. Her mom's mental illness was close to home, because one runs in my family and like Zoey, I am afraid that I will become like that at some point. She has also done impulsive things, like I have. Doug was an awesome character. I liked that he had more depth then most bad boys and he was really sweet. I loved that their was actually chemistry between them. Zoey's best friends Keke and Lila were sweet and added some comedy to this serious novel. I could not stand Zoey's dad. I wanted to go into the book and punch him in the face. He was such a jerk. I liked that the parents were present and they had flaws and issues.
The plot was really engaging. I have had memory lost, when I was really sick. Like Zoey did, I found it to be a violation to not know what I said or did. Echols captured that part really well. I have also been in a severe car accident. So, I understood that aspect of the plot well. The romance between Doug and Zoey was intense, believable, and sweet. Echols is a master at creating amazing romances. I found it to be a original and stunning book that I will continue to remember. Echols is a fantastic writer. I loved Going Too Far and Forget You has a similar voice and makes you think. I am excited for her future books. Forget You is a stunning book with a stunning voice that tells a tension filled book of romance and finding yourself. I highly recommend this book to fans of Elizabeth Scott and Jennifer Echols' previous book, Going Too Far.
