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.
Uh-maze-ing! I don't like reading. Well I use to not but these are the types of books that keep me reading. I never read a book 2. There are only few have read twice and this is one of them.
What a story!
This is my second time reading this book, and it was even better than the first! The story line has so many parts to it that it never gets boring. One of the best things about this book is that you are trying to figure out everything that happened, just as Zoey is trying to do - it really puts you in her shoes. Awesome story!!!
This book is about friendship and love and how sometimes you need to stop and look at the smaller things instead of the big picture. Letting yourself love even though it wasn't what you had planned.
