This is my third book from Katie McGarry and just as her previous books this too is based on bond created between two wounded souls and bringing in everything into their relationship. The romance of the book, Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry follows the same path that you may have encountered multiple times. Rich girl, poor boy versus the world.
Say You’ll Remember Me Official Synopsis
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
Say You’ll Remember Me RWAT Take
The romance certainly travels through the well traveled and worn out alleys of romance novels but still the book has a freshness and uniqueness to it and it simply comes from the quality of narration and treatment of the plot. This also helps the books to stand out and not get caught up on the usualness of YA Romance
What I liked about the book is that inspite of having everything pretty predictable, each chapter was captive. I believe it was the story telling that created that uniqueness.One could easily predict the plot turns but somehow you still want to read and travel through the book and thats how the author has scored with her writing skills
If you love contemporary Romance and wouldn’t mind cliche plot elements then this would be a definitely good pick for you . It comes with everything and anything that works inside a contemporary YA romance
