Never Forgotten by Kelly Risser

Never Forgotten (Never Forgotten, #1)Never Forgotten by Kelly Risser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This was a poignant story of a young girl who has to come to terms with an awful lot in her life.

The opening pages get to the heart of the matter right away, I love a book like that, I just know instantly then that I will grasp the writing throughout 9 time out of 10.

Her Father has left, the marriage is over, her Mother assures her its not to do with her, her Father still loves her.

One day, in walks Meara, she calls for her Mother, no reply, she looks for something to eat, grabs a carrot stick, whilst looking in the cupboards and fridge for other sustenance. Hm where is her Mother?

The she notices her Mother stood there at the sink. She NEVER day dreams, she is always so practical. Something is wrong, she can feel it.

Her Mother takes her hand and explains that the cancer is back.


The story flows from this and its not all doom and gloom. The subject matter is handled delicately and although its has moments of sadness, it also has moments of hope.

There is a touch of paranormal in this [which I wasn't aware of] but it was great, I really enjoyed this piece of work.

What an excellent journey I have been on.

I am so looking forward to book 2.

One minute Meara Quinn is making plans for the summer before her senior year. The next she finds out that her mother's cancer has returned and they're moving away from the only home she's ever known. Every day becomes a struggle as Meara tries to cope with her mother's illness while being forced to move to another country to live with grandparents who are strangers. 

Add weird visions of a father who was absent her entire life and top it all off with one whopping secret that everyone seems bent on keeping from her, and Meara has the perfect ingredients for a major melt down. The only things keeping her from coming unglued are some new friends and Evan—the son of her mother's childhood friend—who seems to know Meara almost better than she knows herself. 

Together with Evan and her friends, Meara embarks on a new journey to unlock the secrets that will not only tell Meara who she is, but what she is
