7th Grade Guest Blogger – Samantha H. March 30, 2013

Ally’s life was perfect. She was popular, dating her crush, and was on her high school dance team…until her life turns upside down! Something horrible happens to her that leaves her choosing between life and death. It all started one day when an embarrassing photo of her was sent around school. It was revenge from an unknown person. The only questions left are – who is standing in Ally’s way from life and death and what is going to happen to her?

Forget Me Not by Carolee Dean is a truly heartbreaking story of just how fast your life/dreams can be destroyed by one simple thing, like a photo. This was my favorite book since it really relates to all the drama and other things that happen in everyday life. My favorite part of Forget Me Not  was when Ally was just figuring out how much other people really cared about her, once they finally knew the truth and not all the rumors that were being spread around.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a kind of sad story that turns out better for everyone in the end and also someone who doesn’t mind if a book has a little bit of romance.
