Seventeen-year-old Hazel Clarke is no stranger to heartbreaks, and being sent to live with a father she's never met is the latest in a string of them. Even the beauty of eastern Australia isn't enough to take her mind off of her mother, who suffers from early-onset Alzheimer's and is living in a nursing home in England. But when Hazel meets the friendly, kindhearted Red and his elusive twin, Luca, she begins the slow process of piecing together a new life-and realizes she isn't the only one struggling with grief. As friendships deepen and love finds its way in, Hazel also learns that when you truly love someone, they are never really gone. Don't Forget Me is Victoria Stevens's sparkling debut, and a touching testament to coming of age, falling in love, and finding home in unlikely places.
Victoria Stevens lives in Whittlebury, England. Don't Forget Me was inspired by childhood vacations to Australia and her grandmother's diagnosis of Alzheimer's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous read! I read this in a day. It has a lot of resemblance to one of my favourites from last year, Words in Deep Blue, in that it’s set in Australia and focuses on teens dealing with different kinds of grief while falling for each other. I loved the characters, the writing, everything. Hazel has to move to Australia with a father she only just met after something tragic separates her from her mother. There she finds a new friend group of like, the most supportive friends a girl could find, including the mysterious Luca. Their bond is really sweet but I also liked seeing Hazel’s other friendships and her relationship with her father, as she starts to accept this new place as home. I highly recommend this one.
