Zoey has a lot going on. Her father has a baby on the way with his mistress, her mother was just committed to a mental hospital after a suicide attempt and she has state swim competition coming up. But all that aside, what she's most worried about is the accident that totaled her car and the evening that she cannot remember. Why was she out driving at 2:30am? Why are her earrings missing? How is Doug Fox, who has hated her since middle school, involved?

I love, love, love Jennifer Echols YA romances. She is so good. She excels at attention to detail and knows so much about timing. She does angst perfectly. ( )

I seem to have a hard time relating to Echols's female characters, but I was extremely fascinated with Doug in this book. And also with the town the story was set in.

Echols is certainly a champion at writing teen angst. I think she has it down pat. There were too many times I wanted to shake Zoey because I felt like a lot of drama could have been avoided if she'd just told the truth. But then again, I can see why she hid some things. Her father wasn't exactly supportive. He was a total prick.

I liked the book well enough, but I had a hard time getting interested in Zoey. I was way more into what was going on with the people around her.

I like Echols's writing. I think she does a good job of setting the scene and describing the setting without going overboard. It was easy to visualize the sea, to see the earrings lying in the junkyard, and to smell the chlorine in the pool. ( )

Like most of Jennifer Echols' books, I read Forget You in one day. It seems that once Echols' prose dances in front of me, I keep reading, mesmerized.

Unfortunately this one was no where close to being one of my favorite of her novels because there was nothing that I felt was going to stick with me. Most of the characters were well-written and explored. Zoey was flawed, but humanly so, believing herself to be in a relationship that she really wasn't in and not being aware of that fact, maybe because she was new to relationships. She was also very concerned about facades, perhaps because of her father and her mother as well since her mother believes that outward appearance is extremely important.

Doug is a character that I'm on the fence about. I really dislike characters that have uncontrollable tempers even if there is a caring side to them. I certainly don't like them as heroes in novels because temper and violence and controlling are not sexy or likable or interesting, to me at any rate.

I think that making Zoey's father almost one-dimensional, self-interested and self-absorbed did a disservice to Zoey's mother who is a public defender. I felt that Zoey's mother would have recognized such selfishness for what it was and probably never would have become involved with him in the first place.

On the whole, however, this book is far better than many ya novels out there. I felt Echols was taking risks and admire her for doing so even if it all didn't quite come together. ( )

Havia muitas coisas que Zoey gostaria de esquecer. Como o fato de seu pai ter engravidado a namorada de vinte e quatro anos. Como o medo de que a cidade inteira descobrisse sobre o colapso nervoso de sua mãe. De como o lindo e temível Doug a insultava na escola. Sentindo que sua vida estava prestes a virar ao avesso, Zoey luta da única maneira que conhece, usando sua famosa atenção aos detalhes para certificar-se de que é a filha, aluna perfeita e namorada do melhor jogador de futebol, Brandon.

3.5 out of 5 stars!! A cute novel. Highly recommended. I wish I had a Doug of my own!! Zoey and Doug's relationship is so sweet especially since she knows there is an attraction but still is never sure exactly why.
