North, Claire, The Sudden Appearance of Hope

Listen.
All the world forgets me. First my face, then my voice, then the consequences of my deeds.

So listen. Remember me.
My name is Hope Ardern, and you won't know who I am. We've met before - a thousand times. But I am the girl the world forgets.
It started when I was sixteen years old. A slow declining, an isolation, one piece at a time.
A father forgetting to drive me to school. A mother setting the table for three, not four. A teacher who forgets to chase my missing homework. A friend who looks straight through me and sees a stranger.
No matter what I do, the words I say, the people I hurt, the crimes I commit - you will never remember who I am.
That makes my life tricky. But it also makes me dangerous . . .
Forget Me Not is the tale of the girl no one remembers. But this gripping story -- of love and loss, of hope and despair, of living in the moment and dying to leave a mark -- is novel that will stay with you for ever.
