From What I Remember… by Stacy Kramer & Valerie Thomas

You guys! From What I Remember… by Stacy Kramer & Valerie Thomas totally took me by surprise. I hadn’t heard a lot of buzz on it, but I thought the whole good-girl-waking-up-in-Mexico-with-a-guy-and-a-wedding-ring sounded too good to pass up. Was I right? OF COURSE I WAS.

So, good girl Kylie is class valedictorian and uber-responsible nerdette. She has way too much responsibility on her shoulders thanks to her less than stellar family life, and she has an obsessive need to PLAN. (If this OCD need for order sounds familiar to you, then I guess you know my mother…)

So, how does she end up stowed away in the back of a van full of stolen electronics headed to Mexico with Max, the class hottie? Oh, my friends. That is a story worth reading about.

Enter Will, Kylie’s gay best friend and Lily, Max’s confused, depressed, bitchy girlfriend and From What I Remember has four vastly different POVs.

I seriously could not have had more fun while reading From What I Remember. Kylie and Max definitely manage to get themselves embroiled into one heck of a messy situation. Stolen electronics become the least of their worries. How the heck are they gonna hitch a ride back to the States in time for graduation? Enter in wild parties, former Mexican soccer stars and an impromptu wedding celebration…

From the could-it-get-any-cuter swoon between Kylie and Max to Will’s first gay encounter…the romance switches between sweet, fun and flat-out crazy. I couldn’t get enough of any of it.

Basically y’all, From What I Remember has got it all. If you’re a fan of young adult contemporary – this definitely isn’t a book you want to miss. Pick it up and prepare to have a blast!

    Definitely agree about the crazy-the story just kept escalating with the stakes rising and their time rushing by.

    I have this book sitting on my shelf calling to me… I really need to find time to move it up my TBR pile. It sounds like such an exciting adventure, I’m really surprised by how big it is for a YA novel though.

    Gah! I’m dying to read this! I’ve heard great things about this and it just sounds like an overall fun book. I really need to see if my library has this in yet, it takes them months to get new releases in. T_T;

    Great review, thanks for sharing! I’m glad you enjoyed it. It definitely sounds amazing. I think I’ll enjoy it.
