I love Cat Patrick!

Forgotten by Cat Patrick
Out: now
4.5/5 Stars
Review copy: from the library

I was not going to read this book, in fact I had "forgotten" to even add it to my TBR list. But, one of the perks of my library job is to see the new titles when they come in. When I pulled it from the pile, one of my Teen Book Club members was standing there, and we looked it over. She decided to check it out.

Flash forward to the next day, when Cayla came screaming into the office:
You have to read this NOW!
O-kay. Well, I couldn't put the darn thing down and read it in one night.
It's a winner!

Why? Well, a big thumbs up for London who is a great character with a voice that just grabs you right away. There is very little angst here, and this girl has a lot to be depressed about-however, London never seems to mire in it.

And Cayla and I agree, Luke is one of the BEST male characters, ever. He well developed, realistic, and has multiple levels-not the typical YA pretty boy who just shows up to rescue the lead female when it is needed. Hooray for Luke, may we all find one just like him for ourselves!

My big fear was that the novel would fall into the Groundhog Day trap (re: boring) and it never did. Well done!
Was hoping for a sequel, but CP's blog says no. Oh, well, I will still keep passing this title around. It's a keeper!
I am not usually a fan girl, but I went and friended Cat Patrick on every social site and her blog. Why? Because I want more, of course.
