    This novel is hot This novel is one of my all time favorite books Honestly I am at a loss for words And that's not supposed to happen to me right? I mean I'm supposed to be able to spout my undying love for novels that totally rock my socks off I'm just having a hard time trying to compose my thoughts on something that is unlike anything I've ever encounteredI loved Jennifer's novel Going Too Far so when I saw the blurb for Forget You I couldn't wait to read it Luckily I received an advance readers copy and the day it arrived I devoured it in it's entirety I simply couldn't put it down And while I wasn't expecting it to exceed the magnificence of Going Too Far it did and then some Writing this review actually makes me want to read it againThere are things that I expect to be addressed when reading young adult literature and there are things that I don't expect to see when reading young adult literature And not just because there are things that people have decided may be too mature for young adults like gasp sex but there are things that just aren't written about because it's taboo to talk about them period It's like saying penis or vagina god forbid you mutter those two words in public like they are a bad thing There is nothing wrong with those words That being said and as I'm finally getting to the point of this whole paragraph there is nothing wrong with be comfortable with your body in a sexual manner being a teen is a hard business there isn't anything wrong with exploring your own body and now I'm totally going off an a tangent here but something that I really respected about this novel is that Jennifer tackled things in this novel that I wished someone would have had the guts to write about when I was a teen And if you still haven't figured out what I'm talking about I'm just going to lay it out for you Masturbation Yep that's right I said it masturbation Are you mature enough for it? I think that teens today are I think teens today are a lot intelligent and self aware than I was I think they deserve a lot credit than what we give them And thank you Jennifer Echols for giving them the credit they deserveNow I'm sure I probably scared some of you away with the masturbation talk but please don't think that's all this novel is about because it's not it's a very very very minuscule part of the novel I mean you could read the novel and not even realize that aspect is even in there and I really only mentioned it because when I read something like I hoped he couldn't tell I was still tingling and swirling from everything Doug and I had and hadn't done to each other I hurried into my dad's house past the cameras and into my room to finish what we'd started and then I think did I just read what I think I did and then read the stance again and then realize I did read what I think I did well it was just so freaggin' awesome to see that mentioned in a ya book I just wanted to yell from my roof top HELL YES JENNIFER ECHOLS YOU ROCKAnd you can probably get from that little snippet that there is some serious sexual chemistry going on between the two main characters Doug and Zoey Did anyone else realize how totally alike these characters were or was it only me? They both have fathers that are not only assholes but they like to bully people into getting their way their mothers are both absent from their lives for the most part Doug's mother being deceased and then Zoey's mom being emotionally unavailable for her daughter because she's in a mental institution these two need each other than they could ever possibly fathomZoey comes across as a bitch but there are some serious underlying issues there which I think are apparent in the novel she's trying to cling to the 'normal' or what she thinks is normal what she thinks is the perfect image that she has to uphold this is where Brandon comes into play She's not so stupid that she doesn't realize the guy is the biggest player and that a one night stand with her suddenly makes him her boyfriend but he's going to make Zoey look perfect look put together and that's what she needs right now She needs that image to feel sane What she really needs is DOUG She just doesn't know it yet And then Doug the other piece to this puzzle and really the piece of the puzzle that Zoey needs because he is the only one that knows what happened the night of the accident Alluring because of his imperfections and his dark past that no one really knows the truth about he is the ying to Zoey's yangThe writing is off the wall it's so simple to read yet it's incredibly complex Yes I realize that that makes no sense what so ever so why don't I just say that it was magnificently well written You know as much about that night as Zoey does which is a big fat nothing I don't know what kept me flipping the pages the anticipation of finding out what really happened that night or the if and when Doug and Zoey would finally get together Not to mention Zoey's personal growth finally coming to terms with the imperfection with her life it was amazingAnd I think that's all I'm going to say about that
