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.

I loved even more that I got to feel every single smile, hope, hurdle and soul crushing moment with them. So of course I found my heart beating faster at the tension between Elle and Drix.

    I love that it reeled me in and that it felt as though I was right in the middle of their lives. I loved even more that I got to feel every single smile, hope, hurdle and soul crushing moment with them. So of course I found my heart beating faster at the tension between Elle and Drix. I wanted them to have more. So much more. Ohhh I absolutely loved Say You'll Remember Me and I can't recommend it enough!

    You see, he spent the last year of his life paying for a crime he didn't commit. Which was robbing a liquor store. And he sacrificed himself to save one of those he loved. *clutches heart* When he was released back to his family, Drix was lost, broken and unsure of himself and how he fit back into his life. It wasn't until he met Elle, at the Midway, that he finally felt as though he could be himself. There was an ease between them that he wasn't able to find with his friends or family. But it was all so ironic, because Drix learned that Elle was the Governor's daughter. And Elle learned that Drix was the face and voice of the Governor’s “Second Chance” Program.

    So even though they came from opposite worlds, they clicked. And the more time that Drix and Elle spent around each other on the campaign trail, a friendship easily formed.

    . But as time went by, we got pulled deeper into their lives. And we watched as hurt and pain bled from the pages. It all tore at my heart, and

    Thankfully we got to alternate between Elle and Drix. So while I fell hard for Drix, I also found myself loving every single thing there was about Elle.

    Welllllll except certain moments with her parents. And those moments hurt to watch, because while she loved so strongly, her parents idea of love didn't always line up with mine. Thankfully she now had Drix in her life, because they found solace with one another. And that only pulled them closer together.

    On top of Elle and Drix, there was side characters that I loved so much. Drix's "family" was beyond amazing.

    Because I'd love to hear about their HEAs! So yes. I highly recommend this book! And that's huge for me since it had one of my triggers

    *received an arc from KM*

    Elle and Drix were so vibrant I swear I forgot I was reading about fictional characters. I ached for them, I cried for them, and I cheered them on from beginning to end. Authentic, edgy, and fraught with realistic, heartfelt conflict and romantic tension, Say You’ll Remember Me is a fantastic coming of age story and now on my favorites shelf for good!

    I freaking

    this book!!!! I couldn't put it down; seriously, damn sleep, I stayed up until 2 AM to finish this. 😍😍😍 The characters were complex, the storyline was addictive, and the writing was absolutely engaging.

    This is one of those books where I love the heroine just as hard as the hero. Elle was an AMAZING female lead. She was so strong and I love how she took no shit...

    This is one of those books where I love the heroine just as hard as the hero. Elle was an AMAZING female lead. She was so strong and I love how she took no shit...

    YESSSSS GIRL! Elle is wealthy and Drix's family has struggled, but that doesn't mean Elle's life is perfect and I love how she was able to recognize that and not let anyone make her feel guilty. Especially because she wasn't being overdramatic, she just wants to be heard by her parents.

    She's in the public eye and struggles a lot with what her responsibilities are and what she has a right to say no to. And the pressure is exacerbated by the fact that her parents keep pushing her farther into it.

    I loved how the author wrote Elle's parents. They had a lot of depth and I must admit I never had a clear read on them. In the end I saw them just like Elle did: they're flawed but they still love her. It was truly impressive.

    Drix... *sigh* *sigh again* oh, how I loved him 😍😍 I'm such a sucker for a reformed bad boy, and he fit the bill perfectly! He struggles just like Elle does and I loved how they could bond over that even with their differences.

    He does try to push Elle away (some), but it becomes obvious that they are simply drawn to one another. And even with the consequences, they can't stay away.

    There were times when some might have seen it as insta-love, but I never got that. Were they attracted to each other? Yes. But I think the deeper connection was more about recognition of each other's pain, than any kind of instant love.

    God, I loved watching her and Drix come to terms with the imperfect world they live in. They don't just accept it, but they don't reject it either. They learn that not everything is neat and simple. Good and bad aren't separate things that never intersect. I was seriously SO damn happy with their portrayals. They weren't annoying teenagers, and I think that was because the shit they went through did a lot to mature them. Yet they still had so much to learn.

    One of my FAVORITE quotes EVER is this one:

    It's a bit hard to explain why without going in detail to the plot, but this is one of the things Elle refuses to compromise on. Everyone kept telling her that sometimes sacrifices must be made for the greater good. That sometimes a single life wasn't as important as the collective. But she

    to budge. And while I understand what a few of the other characters meant, I absolutely admired her for standing by this principle.

    Honestly I could go on and on and on. It was one of

    books. The kind you want to shout about and beg everyone to read. So PLEASE READ THIS!

    is one of the best coming of age stories I've ever read and I will be counting down the days until I can read it again! 💜

    After thinking on my review and rating for a couple of days and recently finishing 'Crash Into You' I definitely think this is a 4 Star rating book.

    I'm left absolutely floored by Say You'll Remember Me. Katie McGarry has written a novel that strips back characteristics of a person so they can truly see who they're meant to be. Elle and Drix are lost souls who find solace together, their love empowering them to make change.

    I read my first Katie McGarry novel in October of 2014. Even after so many years, I still remember how captivated, and engaged I felt. I devoured the book even though it was strictly YA. Since then I read more and more YA – including many exceptional books by other authors. But Katie McGarry’s books were pretty much the first young adult novels I ever gave a try.

    I read my first Katie McGarry novel in October of 2014. Even after so many years, I still remember how captivated, and engaged I felt. I devoured the book even though it was strictly YA. Since then I read more and more YA – including many exceptional books by other authors. But Katie McGarry’s books were pretty much the first young adult novels I ever gave a try.

    Say you’ll Remember Me was the first book by this author I picked up in recent years and I’m glad to report, nothing has changed. I’m still as engrossed as ever before.

    For me, her books are TRUE representations of the Young Adult genre. Authentic teenage troubles. Characters that struggle with real and relatable situations. And she excels at writing teenage relationships that work without immediately jumping into bed.

    Her writing is fluent, smart, engaging and engrossing. I was immediately sucked in. Delighted by the characters, and falling in love with the story and cast.

    I loved the forbidden aspect of the plot. The convict, and the governor’s daughter. Drix and Elle were both mature, and very aware of their responsibilities towards family and society. They both struggled to find a middle ground, a way to be themselves, while simultaneously satisfying everyone else’s expectations.

    The depth of feelings between the couple was true, tangible, and a delight. Their trust in each other, as well as their never-ending faith was heartwarming and distinctively Katie McGarry. She excels in writing characters that are beyond their years and display a maturity that delights me to no end. And a good amount of angst and wonderful honest dialogues left me raw and deeply engaged.

    I was very happy that I picked up this novel. It brought back memories and confirmed why I enjoyed her Pushing the Limits Series so much. I’m looking forward reacquainting myself with there work.

    I don’t read all that much YA anymore, I have absolutely nothing against it, there was a time when I almost strictly stuck to the genre, but I’m at a point in my life where I can’t always relate to the trials and tribulations of teenagers. But sometimes I hear good things about an author or a particular book so I make an exception and I am SO glad that I did because not only did McGarry make me relate to her beautifully crafted characters, she made me fall a little in love with them.

    This is told via alternate perspectives that flip back and forth each chapter, one is from Ellison, the daughter of a politician who lives a privileged life and then Drix, a kid who had the odds stacked against him from day one. They couldn’t be more different from each but I adored both and was impressed by how the author gave them both separate voices that rang true to that of a teenaged kid from their particular background.

    This was a topical book that dealt with many issues that are relevant to youth today that managed to convey some fantastic messages in a nonjudgmental way. Parts of this broke my heart a little and then there were some surprises in the end with some intensity that I wasn’t expecting, I loved the highs and lows!

    Say You’ll Remember Me in three words: Sweet, romantic and emotional.

    I am quite a visual person when it comes to books and I like nothing more than a good cover. Katie’s McGarry’s latest release, a young adult offering titled, Say You’ll Remember Me features a striking cover image that served to draw me to this book. The image, with its vibrant pink and purple background, has a ferris wheel embellished across it. I think this ferris wheel works a solid metaphor for the events in this novel. Life is like a fairground ride, while thrilling and adventurous, it is full of ups and downs.

    The leads of Katie McGarry’s Say You’ll Remember Me are two teens from very different backgrounds. Seventeen year old Ellison (Elle) lives a life of privilege. As the daughter of a prominent governor, Elle’s life is one of high expectation and intense attention. On the other hand, McGarry’s male lead, Hendrix (Drix), has always lived a life of disadvantage. He has suffered loss and hard times. When these two meet, through a chance encounter at a local fair, sparks fly immediately and despite their differences they are drawn to one another. Their attraction is short lived and hits an immediate roadblock when Elle’s family disapproves of their only daughter’s new relationship with an ex crim. Drix has secrets and he has taken the fall for a crime he didn’t commit. Despite this, Drix faces prejudice and opposition from Elle’s powerful parents and their political team. Drix is determined to prove his worth and his innocence. Meanwhile, Elle wants to rise above the expectations and rules her parents have set for her. It is a struggle for this young couple to achieve the love and life they both deserve.

    I am a newcomer to the work of established young adult novelist, Katie McGarry. While flicking through the first pages of this book, I learnt that McGarry is the author of quite a detailed back list. She has two successful series under her belt. Say You’ll Remember Me is brand new stand alone novel, with fresh characters that do not seem to have any prior links to the Thunder Road or the Pushing the Limits series.

    I appreciated the main themes of this novel. The issues presented were relevant, realistic and very contemporary. Teens will have much to relate to through the events that occur in this book. McGarry covers problems such as juvenile crime, drugs, peer pressure, parental expectations, societal expectations and class differences. Each of these themes are touched on with insight and sensitivity.

    Say You’ll Remember Me is told from the shifting first person perspectives of primary characters Ellison and Hendrix. McGarry’s leads are contrasted very well. Although Elle and Drix come from opposite ends of the social spectrum, they seem to find mutual attraction and achieve common ground. Drix is a flawed character, but this makes him more believable and relatable. He also earns the reader’s sympathy. I liked his interactions with Elle and other side characters he directly comes into contact with. Elle, initially can be viewed as a typical spoilt little rich girl. However, beneath this initial image, is a young girl who is constrained by her parents, their expectations and society’s view of her. I enjoyed watching her break free from these chains and assert her independence.

    Romance plays a big part in this novel. Elle and Drix fall quick and hard in love. Although they are attracted to one another physically, they do take the time to get to know each other and I thought this was a refreshing take on the typical hot headed teen romance. The developing relationship and love story between Elle and Drix is both equal parts sweet and sensual. Their chemistry radiates through the book, from their first chance meeting, until the poignant close of this novel. It is a love story not without its stumbling blocks, which is perhaps an accurate reflection of real life.

    The added backdrop of an intriguing political atmosphere that surrounds main protagonist Elle, gives this book a solid edge. I liked how McGarry explored this territory and how it added pressure to both Elle as person and her budding romance. McGarry also explores the family dynamics that comes with being part of a high profile family, where everything and everything is put on the public spotlight. I thought this aspect of the book was handled very well by the author.

    I can now see the wide appeal and popularity of author Katie McGarry after reading her new novel, Say You’ll Remember Me. It is a novel that contains a lesson or two in love, life, second chances and asserting your independence, which will especially appeal to the late teen target audience.

    *I wish to thank Harlequin Books Australia for providing me with a copy of this book for review purposes.
