Levi suffers from depression, anxiety, and mood swings as a result of the unexpected and tragic death of his girlfriend. The grief and pain of this loss drove him to stop speaking for months and isolate himself from the world. Out of ideas, his mother decides that he should move from Australia to go live with his father in America. Levi is a rude, sarcastic, character. He meets someone with almost the exact name as his deceased girlfriend, and of course, she looks exactly like her, too. She sees his brokenness and it intrigues her and she wants to help. This is a very dramatic book with strong topics. There is no profanity or adult content. What is remarkable is that this novel was written by a 17 year old!
In Remember to Forget from Watty Award-winning author Ashley Royer, Levi has refused to speak since the tragic death of his girlfriend, Delia, and can’t seem to come out of his depression and hindering self-doubt. Desperate to make some positive change in Levi’s life, his mother sends him to live with his father in Maine. Though the idea of moving from Australia to America seems completely daunting, Levi passively accepts his fate, but once he lands faces personal struggles and self-doubt at the same time he and his dad battle through resentment and misunderstanding. And then, while at therapy, Levi meets Delilah, a girl who eerily reminds him of someone he lost.
