Forget You

by Jennifer Echols

Mtv Books | July 20, 2010 | Trade Paperback

Forget You is rated 4 out of 5 by 7.
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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good And Well Written I enjoyed Forget You very much. The premise was good and I loved Echol's writting.I did feel that some parts were rushed, while others were perfectly paced, and Zoey did annoy me. But, like most people, she wouldn't know what the right thing to do is, and I do enjoy that she's like a 'real person', in my opinion, with the uncertinty she felt. She was also clueless at some points, and I just wanted to smack her and tell her the right thing to do. Because of this, i both liked Zoey, but felt annoyed with her, too, if you know what I mean. The ending was really good, and I fell in love with Doug. I'm impressed with Echols writing, and will continue to read more of her books in the future. I liked the family dynamics and problems that occurred. Overall, I really enjoyed Forget You. It was a quick, easy, fun-type read thats pretty light and really well-written. It was a really good book with fully-developed characters and a polt and concept that was really different and impressive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute Little Summer Read *3.5 Stars* I thought the idea was nice, and it's one of those easy reads about teen issues. I enjoyed it and thought it was perfect to read for the beginning of summer. The writing was well done, and I have a feeling that this won't be the last novel I'll read from Jennifer Echols. She's like another Sarah Dessen, and I've always enjoyed her novels when I want to read about teen stuff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Moody Teenager . blogspot . com review In my opinion, your YA book collection is not a book collection without one of Jennifer Echols' lovely YA romance novels. I loved Going too Far and Forget you was just as good. So the book basically picks up when Zoey's mother has just attempted suicide, the only people who know of this are Zoey's dad, officer Fox and the lovely (sarcasatic) Doug Fox. To block everything out of her mind out, Zoey ends up hooking up with bff Brandon at a party (shame.......) and then she pronounces both of them as bf-gf. Then one night, Zoey plans on going parking with Brandon buuuttt she ends up in an accident. And then Brandon is distant, Doug is all lovey dovey and Zoey is just kinda scratching her head going WTF? Oh but her father is still a douche. The whole mistery that Zoey is trying to solve in the book is What happened that night? What changed? Zoey tries to figure that out by tricking people into telling her, but I still don't get why Zoey couldn't just ask Doug ''What happened last night?'' It would have made everybody's lives, including Zoey's a lot simpler. But she didn't. And that's okay because we got a real good book out of it. I also can`t help but criticize Zoey's ignorance when it came to Brandon, she knew what kind of a player he was, but she thought she was an exception because she listened to Brandon whine for a few summers. ANYWAYS...I really like the mistery aspect to the story. I mean, we pretty much know about each and every character in the book, except for Doug. He was a delicious little mistery, although he was sometimes a pain in the ass. Well...a funny one at the least. Like many of Jennifer`s books, this was a very light and easy read. Although it was somewhat forgettable, it was super sweet and cute. A nice little romance novel that you can always think back on and say ''That was a good read''. It's as simple as that, Forget you by Jennifer Echols gets the Gold Moody Seal of Approval. Because when you are in need of a break from fearies, psychics and everything in between. There's always Forget you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed this book!! Really interesting, romantic, sexy and overall a great story that kept my attention the whole way through. While searching for a good book to buy I saw the cover for Forget You. The cover itself drew me in. Come one, how cute is it?? After reading the description of the book I was instantly interested in reading it and bought the book shortly after. Echols keeps the readers guessing and wondering what will happen next. I couldn't put the book down, I finished it within a day and was disappointed when I realized it was over. Although I found Zoey to be a bit annoying at first, the decision she makes with Brandon despite the many conversations she has had with him concerning his past relationships, and by relationship I mean sex, with other girls, I did come to really like her. She believes, because her and Brandon were friends before, it will be different for them compared to his previous "relationships". After a car being in a car crash Zoey finds herself in a mess when she can't remember the accident at all except for Doug, a boy who seemed to hate her for as long as she can remember, saving her and bringing her to safety. Now, not remembering anything from that night, confused about why Doug is now acting surprisingly attached to her, Zoey must put the pieces together to find out what really happened . She gets help from Doug, which isn't always the easiest thing, and along the way becomes closer to him. I loved Doug, although he appears to be a mysterious guy with a bad temper he really has a soft heart. It's clear he has feelings for Zoey and I found myself cheering them on, wanting them to be together. I wanted to jump into the story and shake her...orrrrrr just take him for myself ;). The way Echols described moments between Doug and Zoey really surprised me. It was sweet, funny, and sometimes very hot. I was actually shocked at just how descriptive these scenes were, but hey, I have no complaints about that. It really showed the emotion and the feelings the characters were having...especially with Doug I found. I rarely put the book down while reading it. I found myself wanting to find out what really happened the night of the accident as much as Zoey wanted to too. I wanted to see who she would choose to be with in the end. Would things work out with Brandon, would things really be different for them compared to his past relationships? Or would she choose Doug, frustrating mysterious Doug?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good read you wont forget Forget You by Jennifer Echols was a really good book that I enjoyed reading, I was excited to read it because I have read some of her other books and I wanted to see how this would match up. Overall the book was good it could have been better in some areas but it had an interesting concept and characters you could get in to. I will say I found Zoey alittle annoying at times and I also found the text alittle annoying at times as well but you can ignore those flaws when reading the book. I think it's safe to say you will be on team Doug in this book because Brendon really? Again this was a great book better than Going To Far for me but not as good as the Endless Summer bindup, I would recommend the book it was a good read. :0)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You Won't Forget This Book I was so excited when I picked up a copy of Forget You at the bookstore... after all, I loved Going Too Far so I couldn't wait to see what Jennifer Echols next romantic drama would be like. While I didn't come to love it as much as Going Too Far, I still really enjoyed Forget You, breezing through the pages until before I knew it, I was already at the end. In Forget You, popular swim team captain Zoey gets into a car accident one night but the next day, she can't remember anything except that Doug had pulled her out of the car.... which doesn't make sense because they've never gotten along. Zoey is a girl used to being in control and it scares her that she can't remember any of the events of that night, especially since Doug is suddenly acting as though something had happened between them while her new boyfriend, Brandon, seems to be avoiding her. Once again, the chemistry between the characters are off the charts and although Zoey can deny all she wants about her feelings for Doug, you'll be cheering for them to be together from the start. The only reason I didn't completely fall in love with this novel was because I spent most of it wanting to reach into the pages so I could talk some sense into Zoey. She spends most of the time bent on trying to maintain she even has a relationship with Brandon, but it's so obvious that she should be with Doug because he actually cares for her. Her father is about to marry someone that's less than a decade older than her and her mother has tried to commit suicide, a fact almost no one knows. It's no wonder that she's trying to have a perfect image, because in reality, her life is so far from perfect, but I thought Zoey cares what others think of her too much. With that said about the main MC, without a doubt, Forget You will certainly hold your interest. The urge to find out what really happened the night of the car crash, and the wait to finally see if Doug and Zoey will be together despite their differences leaves you eagerly flipping through pages to see what happens next. Jennifer Echols knows exactly how to write teen romance novels that will always leave you wanting more.

About the Book

When swim team captain Zoey wakes up from a car accident with partial amnesia, she is torn between the boy she remembers . . . and the one she doesn't.

Read from the Book

1 Every strong swimmer has a story about nearly drowning. This is mine: Late one June afternoon I was driving home from my summer job at my dad’s water park, Slide with Clyde, when my phone rang and Brandon’s name flashed on the screen. He knew I never answered my phone while driving. And everybody working at Slide with Clyde today had heard that my dad had gotten Ashley, the twenty-four-year-old human resources manager, pregnant. That meant all my friends knew, because I’d found Brandon a job there and my entire swim team jobs as lifeguards, all seventeen of us—everybody but Doug Fox. My dad had left work a little early—to tell my mom before she found out from another source, I guessed. So if Brandon wanted to talk to me now , it must be important. Maybe it had something to do with my parents. I parked my vintage Volkswagon Bug in the courtyard outside my house, between my dad’s Benz and my mom’s eco-friendly hybrid, and cut the engine. The Bug had no air-conditioning. The Florida heat had been bearable while I was damp from swimming and the car was moving. But my bikini had dried underneath my T-shirt and gym shorts. The sun beat down. The heat crept through the open windows like a dangerous animal unafraid of humans and settled on my chest. I picked up my phone and pushed the button to call Brandon back. “Zoey,” he said. “Hey, baby. Is something wrong?” “Everything!” he exclaimed. “You̵
