An edge-of-your seat psychological thriller with a romantic twist
On the three-month anniversary of her boyfriend Flynn’s death, Morgan uploads her only photo of him to FriendShare to get some closure—but she’s shocked when the facial recognition software suggests she tag him as “Evan Murphy.” She’s never heard of Evan, but a quick search tells her that he lives in a nearby town and looks exactly like Flynn. Only this boy is very much alive.
Digging through layers of secrets and lies, Morgan is left questioning everything she thought she knew about her boyfriend, her town, and even her parents’ involvement in this massive web of lies.
The concept behind this book is good. The mystery, however, is very predictable and really simple. The first chapter of this book really caught my attention and for me, that’s important because that’s where I decide if I will continue reading the book or not.
Forget Me started with a BAM. K.A. Harrington left her readers a lot of questions. What was Flynn doing outside? Who was he waiting? What was his secrets? Who hit him?! And 3 months after Flynn died Morgan uploaded a picture on a social networking site and BAM.. there’s Flynn but his name is Evan. Wait.. what?! See, the concept of this book is really interesting. Sadly, it didn’t leave up to it.
The characters were decent enough but not memorable. Morgan, the main character, there is nothing really remarkable about her. She’s your typical female character. Toni, her best friend, is your typical best friend. But I actually enjoyed her personality. I also like the fact that Morgan and Toni told each other every thing. Having this kind of friendship in a YA book is so rare (Maybe, I’m just reading the bad ones). Evan, the love interest, is your typical love interest. He’s hot, handsome, has amazing body, and oh my god he has dimples! Wow. So hot, right? *rolls eyes*
The mystery is very predictable and so simple. The explanation behind all of the things that happened in this book are unrealistic. The concept really fooled me. Forget Me is such a disappointment, to be honest.
