Synopsis from Goodreads
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.

Katie McGarry’s characterizations quite simply blow me away, Hendrix and Ellison are no exception. I absolutely adored them and became fully invested in their futures.
While it would appear Hendrix and Ellison are complete opposites based on their upbringing and backgrounds, this couldn’t be further from the truth. It is their internal struggles that bind them together and create a deep emotional bond between the pair. Both Hendrix and Ellison struggle with the expectations placed upon them whether by themselves, society, friends or parents. they have to fight their way out of the boxes they have been placed in.
Katie has a gift for weaving themes of identity and self-awareness through the narrative as well as how events in our lives shape the person we become. External factors and socio-economic status feature heavily within Say You’ll Remember Me giving a thought-provoking edge to the plot. It is easy to see the judgments we, as a society, are guilty of making without the insight into the consequences this type of discrimination will have on the individuals concerned; how quick we are to condemn but reticent to forgive.
There is a lot going on within the pages of Say You’ll Remember Me – identity, self-awareness, friendship, family, second-chances and maybe most importantly believing we deserve them. As always Katie gives us a wonderful array of peripheral characters that you can’t help but want to get to know in further detail.
Say You’ll Remember Me is a story to completely lose yourself in and characters you can’t let go of. Please forgive my deliberate vagueness but you really need to experience the story for yourselves – you won’t regret it 😉 I rarely give 5* reviews but Say You’ll Remember Me deserved every single one.
