Remembrance by Michelle Madow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Not sure what it was about this book that kept me so interested, but I just couldn't put it down!
The book starts off as Jeremy and Lizzie were driving to school, the first day of school. Jeremy had been acting differently, more distant, always worried about his new friends on the Varsity soccer team. In line to be the next Co-Captain of the team. Sure the pressure was on him, but they didn't seem to have that same connection they once had 3 years ago when they started dating.
First day of school and Lizzie's first class was History with her BFF Chelsea. Just as class was about to start, a new guy walks into the classroom. Their eyes meet and Lizzie knows she has met this guy before. She KNOWS him. She can visualize his hair a little longer, but still in that messed up sort of way. It scared her. He broke his eyes away first, grabbing the last free desk in the classroom. The one next to Lizzie. Throughout the whole class, she did everything she could not to look at him, not to think about it.. it was hopless.
Next class in AP French with Jemery, she saw Drew sitting front and center in the same class. French had never been Lizzie's favorite subject, in fact she barely sounded like an English Tourist when the teacher called on her to ask what she did over the summer. Drew looked at her stunned by her lack of the use of the language.
But he re-assured her after class that it would come to her and she would be a natural at the language in no time.
When Chelsea announced to Lizzie that she had asked Drew out on a double date with her and Jeremy, Lizzie's heart started pounding harder.
On the way to the movies, things got a little tense with Jeremy, but once they met up with Chelsea and Drew, Lizzie decided to try to forget Jeremy's harsh words and enjoy the night. Of course they went to a horror movie where everyone knew that Lizzie got scared easily.
I was up late reading this book, waiting to see how it played out -
This book was cute on a lot of different levels. I loved the draw that Drew and Lizzie had towards each other. And yet trying to fight it made everything worse. I loved the flashbacks, and how the knowledge came back to them once they remembered. It was different then other books I've read with similar topics.
Great story - recommended to those that love a good YA Romance book :)
