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. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Say You’ll Remember Me is a fantastic, beautiful story of Hendrix and Ellison. Ellison is the governor's daughter, and Hendrix is the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. They meet so poetically and instantly feel that connection. It isn’t an instant-love, but you could feel that spark deep inside your heart. I love when I can really get to that level with characters. It’s everything. I don’t want to give this story away. I’m not going to tell all the details, that would be a disservice to the reader. McGarry has a writing style that I love. Her words are beautiful. Some stories I’ve read, things will be said. I’ll just stop and think, ok well that wasn’t needed. This is a story has so much heart; it makes its way into your soul. And it does not let you go. Say You'll Remember me will forever have a place in my heart. I’m not sure I have even the right words to describe it. I loved it, and it defiantly is on my top for 2018. Overall, Five Boundless Stars
