When she tries to return it, she's intercepted by a security guard who also happens to be a boy in one of her classes, Colter Sawyer. Colter recognizes Ellery's desperation and begins working hard to earn her trust. Why does this cute boy care about my worthless life?, Ellery wonders.

Teach Me to Forget was an amazing book that I would recommend to people who have strong emotions over the age of 12. This book consists of several different emotions and talks about many deep problems. It also shows one point of view of high school from the protagonist character. This book does an incredible job of making you really think and want to imagine how the characters in this book are feeling and thinking inside. Another great thing that I have noticed in this book is that it has many different point of views from each character, and the book makes you kind of pick sides on who you want the good things to happen to and who has to face the consequences. This feature of the book keeps you entertained nearly throughout every chapter in the book and is why I think lots of people should be reading this book. Another great advantage of the several different points of view from all the characters is that you can relate to at least one of them or their personalities. In conclusion, after reading this book I would rank it 4 out of 5 stars!

this was an amazing book. It gave me all those raw emotions that you love when you pick up a book and the ending...... can't give that away... I read it in about 3 hours since I couldn't put it down.

Definitely recommend this book.
