IF I FORGET YOU simultaneously broke my heart and made me so happy. In the book world, it takes a lot for me to cry. (Whereas in the movie world, I cry all the time. I'm weird.) This book definitely got the tears flowing. I love Avery's character and related to her. While I haven't had a lifetime struggle with memory, some recent health issues did bring about foggy brain and difficulty remembering random things. I embarrassed myself many times with thinking two people were the same person, with forgetting the name of someone I knew very well as she talked right to my face, with racking my brain as to whether or not I had fed my kids lunch, etc. It's a frustrating and, at times, panic-inducing feeling. Needless to say, Avery holds a special place in my heart. I loved this story.
One forgetful girl. Three guys. Can she remember one of them long enough to fall in love? Avery Hollister is a little more than absentminded. She has trouble remembering faces, names, and dates without her piles of lists and Post-it notes. When she heads off to college it takes her a week to realize the guy she’s crushing on is, in fact, three different guys. With a faulty memory and three men who have no idea she’s mixed them up, Avery doesn’t know how to fix the mess she’s made. But she knows she has to try, even if it means losing a love not even she could forget.
