Summary (from goodreads.com):
There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four-year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. With her life about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon.
But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people—suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them? Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her. Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug.
Jennifer Echols does it again, with this amazingly written book. Some really bad things happen to Zoey including her parent's divorce and her mom trying to kill herself. Brandon has always been Zoey's friend, but they start to bloom into something more, and Zoey feels its the only thing good in her life. But then there's Doug and he always makes her so angry and skips practice. It also scares her that he's one of the only people who know about her mom. He could wreck her life. But then she ends up getting in a car crash and Zoey doesn't remember anything about that night. And the only way she will find out is if she starts hanging around Doug, who happened to also be in the same car crash. Will Zoey ever find out what happened on that night?
Wow, this book was so amazing. The characters were well developed and you instantly got sucked into the story. The plot line was defiantly unique and kind of myserious, it kept you guessing the whole way through. And Doug, as a character, was so amazing and hot and charming. I want a Doug in real life!
Will I reread it?
A million times yes, I'm thinking about rereading it very soon.
