Remember Me is a tale that starts the day before Blue’s birthday. She wakes up with bottles of orange juice in her backpack, feeling slightly off the whole day. She doesn’t understand why, but she does have a strange note that says to meet on a little blue bus tomorrow. When she does, she meets a boy, and the gaps in her memory unfold.

But why would she decide to give up her memories in the first place?

Plot wise, not much happens throughout the book. Half of it takes place in the past as she slowly remembers what happened. But just because this book doesn’t have a grand adventure, doesn’t mean it doesn’t still hit you like a truck with feelings. I figured out what happened before the book said it, and it still got to me.

The characters felt real. I loved that one of them is non-binary. Turtle, Jack, and Blue are great. But I also felt like there could’ve been more development in other characters. In the last chapter, a few characters’ actions confused me because I thought they’d act a different way. I expected there to be something more going on to develop. I also felt that way with the flashbacks. There are many flashbacks back-to-back that present time doesn’t move forward, and I wanted that to develop more.

Overall though, I did enjoy the story and its message.

Score: 7/10
