Title: Remember to Forget
Author: Ashley Royer
Release Date: April 5, 2016
Description: In Remember to Forget from Watty Award-winning author Ashley Royer, Levi has refused to speak since the tragic death of his girlfriend, Delia, and can’t seem to come out of his depression and hindering self-doubt. Desperate to make some positive change in Levi’s life, his mother sends him to live with his father in Maine. Though the idea of moving from Australia to America seems completely daunting, Levi passively accepts his fate, but once he lands faces personal struggles and self-doubt at the same time he and his dad battle through resentment and misunderstanding. And then, while at therapy, Levi meets Delilah, a girl who eerily reminds him of someone he lost.
Thoughts: I received this in the mail earlier this year from the publisher for an honest review. Honestly this isn’t like my usual read but I’ve been trying to branch out so I thought I would give it a try. I had expected to just read a chapter or two before heading to bed and well, we all know for a reader that 9 times out of 10 that turns into a lie. This was one of those times.
I can say that at first I found Levi a little frustrating because it wasn’t quite clear why he was the way that he was other than the loss he suffered. But you ha to wonder for a while what happened to this person. But, the other characters and the mystery behind him kept me going. For a debut novel Ashley did a wonderful job.
