Keep Me in Mind
After a traumatic event resulting in memory loss, Ellia wakes up in a hospital room with no recollection of the beautiful boy claiming to be her boyfriend. Ellie remembers her family, and her closest friend, but not her relationship with Liam. When Ellia wakes up, Liam is devastated with the news that she doesn’t know who he is. As Ellia starts her road to recovery and trying to remember who she was, Liam also works on Ellia remembering their relationship. An accident tore them apart, but, hopefully, love will bring them together.
This book has a pull on you, like when you get really attached to a book, a character, or plotline and you feel the pull of your emotions. That’s what happened in this novel. That’s what happened every time I read another chapter. I felt the tragic drop of hope when Liam was forgotten. I felt the surge of happiness when Liam made progress with Ellia. I love how Reed made Ellia’s accident very obscure, and, as you continue to read, it revealed more and more about the accident. You learn the details of the incident at the same pace as Ellia.
The dual perspectives throughout the novel is a wonderful idea for this storyline. The views from these two characters really helped the reader experience the traumatic event and how it effected the pair. This is my first time reading a novel from Jaime Reed, and it was splendid. I will look for her work on the shelves when scouring for new novels. This book is a wonderful addition to the young adult genre.
