Wick had thought her troubles were over.

But she should’ve known better.

Not only is she embroiled in a new murder case, which starts with a body with “Remember Me” carved into it and doesn’t stop there, but she also discovers new evidence surrounding her mother’s suicide…which leads her right back to her imprisoned deadbeat dad. And she has to deal with her flirty new hacker friend, Milo, sniffing around—which her boyfriend, Griff, isn’t too happy about.

The pressure might be too much as secrets—including Wick’s own—climb to the surface.

Remember Me is an edge-of-your-seat thrilling read that’ll have readers turning the pages at lightning speed! The paperback of Find Me is on sale simultaneously, and a digital original novella from Romily, featuring Griff, is on sale just a few weeks before!


Review

Upon the discovery of a body with the words “Remember Me” carved on it, Wick becomes embroiled in another case. On top of that, Wick mysteriously receives DVD tapes about her mother, she makes a hacker friend in Milo, and Griff begins to pull away from her. Needless to say, Wick has a lot going on.

I love how Wick's internal struggles are deeper explored in this sequel to Find Me. Wick realizes that she can't live a normal teenage life. Like any other teenager, she struggles with who she wants to be, but her situation is complicated by the situations she deals with. The past always finds a way to catch up to her. Willing to sacrifice her own freedom to protect the ones she loves, Wick keeps pushing away everyone she cares about. It is sad to see Griff's lack of understanding about Wick's situation. He doesn’t seem to see eye to eye about how Wick is being forced to work for Carson. Admittedly, Wick hides many secrets from him. I think that she should be more open with Griff, so he can better understand her.

Despite his flaws, Griff is very protective and supportive of Wick even when he disagrees with her actions. Nevertheless, Wick wonders if Griff loves her for who she is or what he believes she ought to be. Milo is the opposite of Griff. Whereas Griff will go to authorities with problems, Milo will seek revenge. Milo and Wick are both hackers, so they have a lot in common, and they get along perfectly well. I love how he involves himself into Wick's life, and being helpful to her.

Remember Me is full of twists and turns. Not only does Wick work for Carson, she discovers new information about her mother’s death. The novel explores Wick’s trust issues, relationship with her adoptive mother, Bren, Griff, Milo, and her past. By adding all these subplots, the story keeps the pace moving quickly through the book. I definitely recommend Remember Me to readers who enjoy young adult suspense and thrillers. I am looking forward to reading the next novel in the series.
