Waiting on Wednesday: Forget You

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I am desperately awaiting the July 20th arrival of Forget You by Jennifer Echols. I fell in love with Going Too Far recently and have been on the lookout for her other books. I mean, just read the summary of this one:

There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four-year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. With her life about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon.

But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people—suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them? Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her. Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug.

Really?! What the holy-cow-craziness?! In a way this reminds me of two of Simone Elkeles's books: Leaving Paradise and Perfect Chemistry. This book seems to be filled with mystery, intrigue, love, loss, and hope. I absolutely ADORED Jennifer Echols's other book Going Too Far and I am hoping that this one will live up to my hopes. So what are you waiting on this week?
