This book is one of those rare ones that had me gripped from page one right to the end, I did not want to have to stop reading it and was so eager to devour it’s pages.

Don’t you Forget About me features Georgina – a random switch up of her sixth form class back in the end lead her to being seated next to the mysterious new kid Lucas during a reading of Wuthering Heights, and first love bloomed.  Fast forward to present day and Georgina is unexpectedly reunited with her first love, but it seems she wasn’t as memorable to him as he doesn’t remember her at all.

Georgina is great, a real sense of humour is overflowing from the page and it’s very natural and keeps you engaged. The events that unfold around her from the awful restaurant she is working in, her semi-famous self-absorbed boyfriend who cheats on her to her flatmate who regularly accuses her of stealing.  There is so much to draw upon that builds her character.

And then there is Lucas the mysterious, tall dark & handsome first love who she now finds herself working for alongside his brother Devlin. Georgina seems a bit lost both her career and love life a mess and there is an element of self-doubt about her despite the fact it’s clear she is very beautiful and quite talented.  As the book goes on the reasons for that self-doubt are revealed and without spoilers it’s such a great reflection of the current social climate.

There’s chic lit and then there is amazing chic lit and this is definitely the latter.  There is so much to praise in this book, the character, the story, the humour, you can’t help but get caught up in the plot and be drawn in.  I won’t be forgetting about this book in a hurry

It began with four words.

‘I love your laugh. x’

But that was twelve years ago. It really began the day Georgina was fired from The Worst Restaurant in Sheffield (© Tripadvisor) and found The Worst Boyfriend in the World (© Georgina’s best friends) in bed with someone else.

So when her new boss, Lucas McCarthy, turns out to be the boy who wrote those words to her all that time ago, it feels like the start of something.

The only problem? He doesn’t seem to remember Georgina – at all…
