SAY YOU’LL REMEMBER ME Synopsis:
“Doesn’t matter who did it. Not anymore. I did the time. It’s over.”
When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the 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.

What I love most about Katie McGarry’s books is that she is able to create characters that you may not only be able to see yourself in, but you can feel the emotions that they are feeling with the situations that they find themselves in. This story is no different with Drix and Elle. They meet by chance and neither one of them know or expect the impact that the other will have on their lives.
This is one of those ‘is the grass greener on the other side?’ kind of stories. Both Elle and Drix have had their issues growing up. Drix has had problems with the law while Elle has been forced into a world that she may not have chosen for herself, forced to give up dreams that doesn’t want to give up. With each other, they find strength and they learn that there is a fine line between what is right and wrong.
While McGarry writes about love in her stories, they aren’t always the centerpiece for them. In this story, I think that is the case. She writes about two young people finding their place in the world and how the world works. We have all had to have that day where we see that the world is not beautiful and wonderful and that the people that we love the most tend to be the ones that hurt us the most.
I love Drix in this story and how we see the transformation that he makes. We see that side of him that is going down the road to drugs and alcohol like his father and how a twist of fate can change everything. We see him start to stand up and fight for what he believes in and how his courage is able to give Elle the strength and courage to do the same thing. I love how McGarry can prove that one decision can shape and change the lives of those around them.
The ending is a hard one for me personally to get through and it’s just because I get too attached to characters. This book has a surprise in and it may make you cry (I know I sure did) but it didn’t make me like it any less.
