On the three-month anniversary of her boyfriend Flynn’s death, Morgan uploads her only photo of him to FriendShare to get some closure—but she’s shocked when the facial recognition software suggests she tag him as "Evan Murphy." She’s never heard of Evan, but a quick search tells her that he lives in a nearby town and looks exactly like Flynn. Only this boy is very much alive.

Digging through layers of secrets and lies, Morgan is left questioning everything she thought she knew about her boyfriend, her town, and even her parents' involvement in this massive web of lies.

Personally I love a good mystery book. I’ve been a fan since I was young abs read The Westing Game for the first time. I love the hints and the small clues that try to give away the end. I will admit that most that I’ve read I have figured out early, but doesn’t take my love away. So when I heard about Forget Me I was very excited. It seemed creepy and weird and totally up my alley to be filled with clues. And now that I have read Forget Me I can report that it lived up to the hope in my heard. It was really really good!

Forget Me is about Morgan, a girl that list her boyfriend Flynn in and accident 3 months prior. Since Flynn’s death Morgan has been wracked with guilt over what she could have done differently that may have changed things. Trying to move on, she listens to her best friend Toni  and decides to share a picture of Flynn on FriendShare. Only FriendShare is convince Flynn is actually someone named Evan and upon further investigation Morgan is convinced too since Evan and Flynn are dead ringers for each other. Not sure what to think Morgan digs into both Flynn and Evan’s lives and finds out nothing is what she expected at all.

This book was a massive mind game. The whole time I was reading I was trying to figure out if Evan was really Flynn or what the story was. It 100% kept me on my toes and the end was pretty shocking. Plus it helped a lot that I liked Morgan, Evan, Toni and Reece who were all really big part of the story and help in figuring out what exactly was going on, if Flynn was Evan and what Flynn was hiding. They all just sort of worked together in an interesting way as they were all so very very different. The relationships added to the story and I for one appreciated that.

All in all Forget Me was a great story. It had really great elements that all worked well together and you could tell when reading that the author took time and plotting all the tiny nuances out. It was a great mystery and really kept me on the end of the seat with curiosity. It is something I would definitely suggest in picking up. It will keep you interested I can guarantee that. Plus as a side note, the author slipped in two of the Boston Bruins player’s names so it is a little hide and seek if you are a hockey fan. I would recommend this one.

  1. Aww, I’m glad you loved this one! The mystery sounds really good (plus I usually suck at figuring them out). The dead boyfriend thing was throwing me off for a while, but maybe I’ll give this a chance after all. 🙂 Great review, Andi!
