      3.5 out of 5 Stars. "Monsters are monstersIt doesn't make a difference if they're from space or your mind."Hazel, our English teenaged MC, is forced to move to Australia to spend what she hopes will be a "semester only" with her new-to-her father. Struggling to adjust to her new life Down Under, Hazel eventually tires of evading her emotions and starts to let people in. Covering everything from depression and assault to friendships and healing, this YA debut seems to have it all. And while I enj [...]

      Rating: 4.5 StarsThat was so lovely, and the closing letter! Not a dry eye in the place. I loved this story of healing and moving forward, of "family" and "home". After finishing a really heart wrenching and heavy book, I needed something to lift me back up a little. Let me tell you, this little gem of a book did just that. Don't Forget Me had me grinning and shedding happy tears in no time.•Pro: I really loved the different types of loss the characters were grieving. Some were mourning the de [...]

      Don’t Forget Me was a book that I didn’t really know anything about and I basically went into it blind. I’m glad I did though, it made Hazel’s story that much more powerful because I didn’t know what was going onThe book follows Hazel after she is uprooted from her life in England to live with her dad in Australia. It takes Hazel a while to adjust, partly due to never having met her dad before he shows up to move her to Australia, and because she has other stuff going on back home and [...]

      Review first posted at Library of Colors.I was given an advanced copy of this book from a friend. Thank you, Erin!I stumbled upon this little gem on NetGalley, and while I was not approved for it there *sigh*, my sweet friend Erin sent it to me after receiving it herself. I’m so glad she did, as this was the perfect book to pull me out of my slump I’ve been in since October. October, y’all. I needed something good. Leave it to a contemporary to pull me out of my misery."Redleigh used to sa [...]

      There was no part of Don't Forget Me that I did not like. In fact, I instantly knew that I was going to bond with Hazel, Red, and Luca. The letters that Hazel writes to her mom that are sprinkled throughout the book are so thought provoking. I totally looked forward to reading them. The relationships that are formed are so believable. This book handles loss so beautifully. Plus, it is done through the perspective of several characters who are all dealing with something a little different in thei [...]

      Loved this! So beautiful and hopeful. It also got me out of a big reading slump, so kudos to not being able to put this book down!

      I received an advanced reader’s copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Don't Forget Me by Victoria Stevens is a sweet, beautiful story about family, friendship, and moving forward.When Hazel's mother becomes too ill to take care of her, Hazel has to move to Australia to live with her father that she's never met. Convinced that her new situation is only temporary until she can go back to her mother in England, Hazel tries not to let herself become too attached to [...]

      What I LikedNearly from the beginning I felt connected to the characters. I wanted everything to work out perfectly for all of them. For me, if a book causes me to have this type of connection it has well written characters. I recently read a book and I felt nearly nothing for the characters and it made reading it dull and boring even with all the excitement happening with the plot. Another thing that I truly loved about this book was not only how I connected with the characters, but how they co [...]

      **I received a copy from NetGalley**Hazel finds herself in Australia to live with the father she has never met and she cannot wait to move back to England, with her mother. It soon becomes clear that Hazel was the sole caretaker for her mother who was dealing with an illness or some other kind of issue (we later learn it's early onset Alzheimer's). Throughout the book, Hazel writes letters to her mother reminding her of fun times that they shared together. She also resists her father's attempts [...]

      This was such a bittersweet book, that made me simultaneously feel super happy while tearing up.I was forced to go into this with no expectations due to the lack of info in the description, and even the first chapters, and while I was wary bc of this I'm so glad it didn't keep me from picking up this amazing book! One of my favorite qualities of books is if they are gripping/fast paced enough that I read 150+ pages a day and can't put it down, and this definitely happened w this one.I understand [...]

      ***Received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review***Oh wow.I enjoyed this. I loved the characterse minor and the main characters. I loved the layered storyline. I loved the setting - Australia -- readers can leave the country and explore other countries without leaving their homes. Hazel is dealing with the fact her mom's memory isn't coming back. She's forced to move to Australia to live with the father she has never met - and finally be a teenager, something she didn't get to do back [...]

      ****Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC****When Hazel Clarke is forced to move in with the father she has never met she is determined to make sure that it is just until she is old enough (in the eyes of the law) to leave. What Hazel doesn't expect is the friendship she develops with Red, the boy down the lane, and his twin brother Luca. A touching novel that examines what family is and what family can become. I loved how Stevens explored what home means and how that meaning can change based on the e [...]

      Un roman simple et sans prise de tête, qui se lit d’une traite, sans grande surprise ou rebondissement mais qui fait quand même du bien. À lire quand on n’a rien de mieux ou qu’on a envie d’une lecture de transition 😌

    19. Lauren on said:

      A really great debut. This is a solid novel: well written, deep characters, and a plot that keeps you going. Deals with grief, moving on, and family.

    20. Martin Kearney on said:

      Don't Forget Me is a tour de force by a new writer, Victoria Stevens.Packed full of interesting characters and well-constructed storylines that seamlessly interweave, Hazel's journey to rebuild her life Down Under and learning about trust, relationships and love - and the fact that she isn't the only one - is beautifully told by the author. It leaves you asking as many questions about "where to next?" as it does at the beginning - can't wait for a sequel!I absolutely loved this book!

    21. Samantha on said:

      Victoria Stevens may be my new favourite YA author. I can't wait for this gorgeous book to be on my shelves next to Jandy Nelson and Nicola Yoon February can't come soon enough!!The thing I was most surprised by in this book was how great the minor characters were. Hazel is the main character, but she's not the only POV character, and even the characters who don't have POVs are well rounded and likeable. It really seems like an ensemble cast.I also loved how insightful the characters are without [...]

      2.5 starsI had a mixed reaction to this book. While I liked parts of it, I didn’t totally connect with the main character, Hazel, which left me feeling a little disappointed overall. The main theme of the novel is that life goes on after loss, as hard as it may be to accept that it does when you are grieving. Hazel lost her family and her home in England when her mother had to be put into a nursing home due to early-onset Alzheimer’s, forcing Hazel to move to Australia to live with the fathe [...]

      I received an ARC of Don’t Forget Mevia NetGalley. ***3.5 Stars***Hazel reluctantly moves to Australia, to live with her father, after her mother’s health takes a heartbreaking turn. Though she longs to return home (to England), to be with her mom, she slowly begins to fall in love with the life she’s exposed to in Australia—a life that comes to include friendship (Red, Maddie, and Hunter), love (Luca), and a family (Graham, Claire, and Marc).That’s the gist. Much of the angst presente [...]

Hazel desperately wants to get back to her mother who is hospitalized in England. However, when Hazel meets Red and Luca, the twin brothers, who live next door she begins to build a new life that she may not be willing to leave.Review:I had a hard time trying to decide what I should write about this book. Basically, “Don’t Forget About Me” was a pl [...]

      J'ai eu du mal à embarquer dans l'histoire et c'est narré à la 3e personne d'où mon probable perte d'intérêt. Mais la plume de l'auteure est excellente.
