Forget Me Always by Sara Wolf - NO

Wolf, Sara Forget Me Always, 280 pages. Entangled Teen (Entangled Publishing), 2016. $9.99 Language — R (166 swears, 33 “f”), Mature Content – PG13; Violence – PG13; 

Isis has forgotten Jack—not on purpose, but as a result of her head injury. As if she didn’t already have enough problems to deal with—her mom’s depression, college decisions, and the scars Nameless left—now she must figure out what her life was like last week! But just because her mind has forgotten doesn’t mean that her heart has.

There is a mystery to be solved over the course of these books, which was intriguing at some points, but, throughout my reading, I was mostly distracted by how unrealistic the characters and the situation were. It is a fiction book, but realistic fiction should feel at least somewhat plausible; Isis’s story is not. This is not a book that can be read without the context of the first book and the language and sexual references are very distracting.  

HS—NO. Reviewer: Carolina Herdegen
