Apparently on an Echols kick. Forget You has been one of my favorites of hers so far. Though Zoey was laughably naive at times, it was a touching read watching these two hurting characters navigate the road to being together. I like the way Echols deals with teenagers having sex in her books, it always feels so real, and I was glad that Zoey wasn't necessarily a mean or popular girl, but just kind of "normal" - whatever that means for teenagers.

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.

Forget you By Jennifer Echols is really hard for me to review. I am torn with this book. I REALLY liked the book, I liked the idea, the writing style, and I liked SOME of the characters, but for the most part some of the characters just down right aggravated me. If Zoey wouldn't have been such a Smart girl but so dumb at the same time, I would have REALLY liked this book.

This book hands down has to be my favorite Jennifer Echols book. I was calling it my bubble bath book while reading it. I snuck in a book for fun during a hectic semester and wanted a moment of peace and relax. I got it with this book, Doug has to be one of my favorite book males. He is sweet, saracastic, and ready to give the leading female a run for her money! What can be a better combination for a book? I adored his relationship with his brother, the words that were exchanged with them. This book just was everything that I loved about Jennifer Echols writing rolled into one. I loved the characters and the relationships.

My only real issue I had with the book was that Zoey kept saying she was in a relationship with another guy purly on the fact that they had sex. There was no relationship talk, or any emotions exchanged and for the whole book I just got annoyed because she kept saying she was in a relationship based on the physical act. ( )

The novel introduces us to Zoey whose mean-spirited father is about to marry his much younger and pregnant mistress and whose jilted, mentally ill mother tries to commit suicide. On top of that, Doug has an equally nasty father and spent some time in juvie after the death of his mother. They get into a car accident bad enough to total Zoey's car, break Doug's leg, and give Zoey amnesia.

And that's all in the first 1/4 of the book!

But if you can get past the heavy backstory, Doug and Zoey are worth the read. Doug is my favorite of Jennifer Echols' heroes. He's smart, caring, observant, and sexy even on crutches. ( )

Book description
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.
