Forget Me Not

For Ages: 14 and up
From the author of Take Me There, a fast-paced novel in verse about a girl caught between life and death—and the boy who will do anything to save her.

Ally is devastated when a scandalous photo of her is texted around school. With her reputation in shambles and her life essentially over, she hides out in a back hallway, trying to figure out where everything went wrong.

Elijah has spent time in that hallway too. He landed there after taking a whole bottle of sleeping pills. Now he can see ghosts, and he knows what Ally has yet to suspect—that she’s already half dead, and one choice away from never coming back.

Elijah has loved Ally for years and would do anything to save her from the in-between place. But if she’s going to live, Ally must face her inner demons and find the will to save herself.

Told in interwoven verse narratives, this crushingly honest and poetic “blend of fantasy and potent reality succeeds” (Kirkus Reviews).

Read an Excerpt

I CAME TO THE HALLWAY

because

I wanted to live.

Deliberately.

No, wait.

That was Thoreau.

I came to the hallway

alone,

while the dew

was still on the roses.

Forget that.

I never liked old hymns.

Besides, it’s almost winter

and the roses are

gone

like Thoreau.

I came in peace.

Then I came

to pieces.

Don’t bullshit yourself, Ally.

You came to the hallway

because you didn’t

have anywhere

else to go.
