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.
I’ve been wanting to read this book since it’s release back in 2014 and I honestly don’t know why it has taken me this long to pick it up. And after finishing it? I could kick myself for waiting so long. This book was so, so good.
Three months ago Morgan watched her boyfriend, Flynn, get hit by a car, and later die. As you can imagine, that’s not an easy thing to get over. When Morgan is trying to find some closure, she discovers someone who looks exactly like Flynn. But what does this mean? Is Flynn still alive? Did he lie about who he was? These are just some of the questions that go through Morgan’s mind when she sees ‘Evan Murphy’. This sets Morgan and her best friend, Toni, on a mission to discover the truth, and let me tell you, it isn’t an easy road. There’s a web of lies so deep in her abandoned town and getting too close to answers could come with some serious consequences.
Can I just say that I loved almost every character in this book? Cause I did. Morgan and Toni won me over with their love for each other. This is an example of an awesome best friend relationship. Flynn/Evan (can’t spoil anything) was amazing, and I even loved Reece….eventually. The relationships in this book were amazing and it really set this book apart from others.
The mystery aspect of this book was very well done. All of the clues to figure everything out were there, but I somehow overlooked them at the time I was reading. It wasn’t until everything was revealed that it finally clicked.
Forget Me is a book that I finished in just two sittings, the mystery kept me intrigued the entire time. I couldn’t wait to see how everything unraveled.
