Book Summary:

Two names. One face. A dangerous secret exposed.

 

Morgan never minded her boyfriend Flynn’s dark and private nature. She found it mysterious and alluring. But now he’s dead, and she can’t move on. She feels much like her dying town, River’s End, with its overgrown amusement park and abandoned houses: once happy . . . now fading away.

 

Hoping for some closure, Morgan uploads her only picture of Flynn to the social media site FriendShare along with a note to say good-bye. But she’s shocked when the facial recognition software suggests she tag him as Evan Murphy. She’s never heard of Evan. A quick search reveals that he lives in a nearby town and looks exactly like Flynn. Same eyes, nose, jawline. Only this boy is very much alive. Digging through layers of secrets, Morgan questions everything she thought she knew about her town, her boyfriend, and even her parents’ involvement in this massive web of lies.

 

Forget Me is a heart-pounding novel that draws you in and keeps you guessing until the very end.

 

After her boyfriend of two months dies, Morgan finally moves on… Until she posts a picture of him on a social media site and it tags a very much alive boy that looks just like her dead boyfriend. Morgan decides to investigate this, wanting to believe that her ex boyfriend isn’t actually dead. As she investigates, an even bigger mystery unveils itself and Morgan finds that she may be in over her head.
I personally loved this book. There were points when I was holding my breath and freaking out for the characters. The mystery was suspenseful and I didn’t guess the ending. I’ve read a lot of mystery books that I honestly couldn’t get into because they teetered on the edge of not being realistic. This book was awesome because it played with the idea of trust and mistrust and what’s real and what isn’t real.
I really like that the author could craft such a great book. I couldn’t put the book down and was up way past my bedtime reading it. There were twists and turns and a giant mystery between a company and a town and a girl searching for her dead boyfriend. I loved this book and strongly recommend it.
Rating: Four stars- Great Book
Content: Some minor language, underage drinking, violence and parents fighting, some crude suggestions.
