This week I am waiting on
Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry
Publication Date: January 30th 2018
When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the new Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.
Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.
When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.
But sometimes love can breach all barriers.
Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves–Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence–and each other to finally get what they deserve.
Katie McGarry’s books have become and addiction. I always get sucked into every single story. Her characters are often teens that have been dealt a tough hand in life and we see them navigate through the world and carve out a better future for themselves. You find yourself rooting for these characters and the romances. Drix and Elle come from opposite worlds but I can guarantee that throughout this book they’ll find that they’re not all that different from one another. The only downside to this book is that I have to wait until 2018 to read it!
What’s your most anticipated book?
