    A beautiful story about second chances

    Writing this review is hard, because I don’t know what I can say that would do justice to this incredible book. I’m not sure what to say that I haven’t already said about McGarry’s books, and I’m not sure how to put into words just how I felt reading this book. Say You’ll Remember Me is a beautiful story about second chances. It’s a story will touch the reader, that will stay with you even after you finish it. It’s a story that will make you cry because you can’t help but relate to the characters, and what they’re going through isn’t easy. It’s a story that will make you gasp, because you can’t believe what you just read. It’s a story that will leave you struggling to breathe, a story that will hurt. But the stories that hurt are also the stories that you remember, the stories that need to be told. What made this book so incredible, so magical, was the characters. While the writing, the plot, the story in itself, was amazing and all made for a great book, the characters were what made it remarkable, memorable. I found Elle really relatable. Even though we are very different people, her struggles are something I think a lot of kids struggle with, and probably always will. And it makes this book so much harder to read, but so much more meaningful, too. Elle is selfless and caring, and she can’t keep herself from bringing home stray animals. Just that makes her the best person in the world to me. But she’s trying so hard to be what her parents want her to be, even though it’s not who she wants to be. She really just wants her parents to be proud of her, and what kid doesn’t want that? Then there is Drix, and let me tell you, he’s become one of my favourite book boyfriends. While readers can’t seem to help but love the mysterious bad boys, there’s more to Drix than that. While I liked how badass and strong Drix is, what really stole my heart was how he could also show vulnerability. He doesn’t feel the need to pretend like he doesn’t feel things, to pretend that things don’t affect him. And it’s such a rare thing in books that I just couldn’t keep myself from falling for him. Because sometimes, it takes more bravery to be vulnerable than it does to stay strong. Another thing that I found really important in this book is how it shows how much we are affected by the people we meet. I love the relationship between Drix and Elle, because they both help each other so much. Drix helps Elle come out of her shell and start doing things for herself, and no one else, and Elle helps Drix find peace. They’re in love, sure, but they are also close friends, and that’s beautiful. And the easy conversation between them from the start makes it funny, as well. The plot is good and well thought-out, and it brings attention to a big problem that needs more attention. McGarry isn’t afraid of writing about things people would prefer to pretend don’t exist, or aren’t as big as they really are, and I love it. Say You’ll Remember Me is a wonderful example of why people should read – not because you learn new words or become better at the language, but because it can teach you important things about society, and maybe, hopefully, open people’s eyes to our society’s problems. Finally, there is the writing. While all of the above is quite enough to make it an amazing read, the writing has this tension, this realness, that makes a book impossible to forget. McGarry has this incredible ability to write such relatable, real teenage voices that truly make the characters come alive on the page. It hits your heart each and every time. Say You’ll Remember Me is an unforgettable story that will make your heart hurt, and make you cry, but it will also make you feel light, and make you laugh. It will break your heart, and then mend it, only to break it again. But you won’t care, because the story is so beautifully written that you won’t be able to put it away.
