Publisher’s Description: In Remember to Forget from Watty Award-winning author Ashley Royer, Levi has refused to speak since the tragic death of his girlfriend, Delia, and can’t seem to come out of his depression and hindering self-doubt. Desperate to make some positive change in Levi’s life, his mother sends him to live with his father in Maine. Though the idea of moving from Australia to America seems completely daunting, Levi passively accepts his fate, but once he lands faces personal struggles and self-doubt at the same time he and his dad battle through resentment and misunderstanding. And then, while at therapy, Levi meets Delilah, a girl who eerily reminds him of someone he lost.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Dislikes: I am going to start with what I didn’t like about this book. First, I felt that Levi and Delilah acted much younger than seventeen. I had a hard time seeing them as teenagers. There is very little dialogue. The whole story is more like a stream of subconscious. I was drawn in when I first started reading the story, but as time went on it started to grate on me. Levi’s attitude was just too much for me to handle.

badge3v4Likes: Despite these short comings it is a very heartwarming story. The world needs more Delilah’s—people who will look past the short-comings and still see an interesting person. I also find it telling that Lucy, a three-year-old, is able to break through Levi’s shell with nothing other than her innocence. Although I didn’t get really attached to the characters, they were fairly decent.

I have very mixed feelings about this book. But in the end I have to give it three raindrops.

Other recommendations…
