What to Read After… Look Up! 20/09/21
Forget Me Never
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books
Sophie has always felt alone. Losing her mother so early in life and growing up in several foster homes has made her distance herself from almost everyone. Her cousin Dani is the only one who understands her - Dani may be flaky and emotionally unstable but she is always there when Sophie needs her.
When it seems that Dani has killed herself by jumping off her balcony, Sophie refuses to believe it could be suicide. Sophie and her on-off best friend Reece start to investigate Dani’s life and the circumstances surrounding her death, but they soon find themselves embroiled in something far more serious than they ever could have imagined.
The protagonist of this story is endearing and misunderstood: a character that gets under your skin and stays there long after you have finished reading. She is terrified to get close to anyone in case they hurt her yet she tries so hard to prove that she is worthy of their love. A moving read blending excitment with a sweet love story.
