Synopsis: 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.

Honestly, this was even better than Going To Far (review will be up in a few days!) This book, it honestly, made me think about other things in the world like it. Maybe thats why it took me so long! Dang thinking :P Haha but really, this was probably her best novel yet. It shows the terrors of high school while throwing in the drama of home. Granted, time seemed to move a wee bit to quickly in this novel, but oh well, we ALL have a warped sense of time! (example: my clock says 1 am. I keep thinking 4 am) It was also one of those, "Oh my F***ING GOD!! GET TOGETHER ALREADY!!" novels. Im a picky person though, so the few little details that bothered me (aside from the OMFG moments) But really. Forget You is amazing. I loved Doug. He caused a lot of issues in the book but hes human, its good if he has flaws. Really, if you cant afford to purchase this book, go yell at your library, or kidnap it from your local bookseller (joking i dont want to be responsible for someone going to jail!!!)
