In the sequel to Find Me, Wick Tate, sarcastic teen hacker, is back and once again dealing with criminals and corrupt cops…and a brooding new love interest. Will Wick persevere when some secrets refuse to stay hidden?
Wick had thought her troubles were over.
But she should’ve known better.
Not only is she embroiled in a new murder case, which starts with a body with “Remember Me” carved into it and doesn’t stop there, but she also discovers new evidence surrounding her mother’s suicide…which leads her right back to her imprisoned deadbeat dad. And she has to deal with her flirty new hacker friend, Milo, sniffing around—which her boyfriend, Griff, isn’t too happy about.
The pressure might be too much as secrets—including Wick’s own—climb to the surface.
Remember Me is an edge-of-your-seat thrilling read that’ll have readers turning the pages at lightning speed! The paperback of Find Me is on sale simultaneously, and a digital original novella from Romily, featuring Griff, is on sale just a few weeks before!
Romily Bernard brings the sarcastic voice of Wicket Tate, who is sure to be loved by all teens alike. - Nova @ Out of Time
Romily Bernard's Find Me was one of my favorite books of 2013 so obviously, I'm so excited to have started reading Remember Me! Sometimes the 2nd book is worse than the first or sometimes they're better. Remember Me stayed about the same high quality level, which is great. However, if you notice the rating being half a star lower, it's because it's been a year since I read Find Me. My tastes have gotten a bit pickier and I've noticed more when critiquing. And when I explain, the reason for the missing half isn't too big of a deal.
I LOVE Wicket. I don't know if she really changed from the beginning of Find Me to the end of Remember Me, but I love her character. I think she's so hilarious and amazing. I can really connect with her sarcasm because it seems like she's got this outer shell and at the core, she's a genuine person who was had no choice to become a hacker (not that she doesn't have moments of liking her job) She seemed like such a complex character and a perfect one for this kind of story.
I also really liked how this book dealt with the aftermath of Find Me. I liked seeing how things changed after the events of the first book and it made such a big impact on the second book.
Plus, Remember Me only got twistier. I liked Find Me, but Remember Me had so many secrets and not going to lie, it ended with so many secrets still yet to be uncovered. Grr! I now have to wait for Book Three. I'm SO excited (Romily's books have a way of doing that to me)
The main thing in a book that gets ratings from me is feeling. I am not an overemotional person but I feel when feelings are needed. So if an author can invoke emotion out of me for their characters, it automatically brings up ratings. I don't think its an easy thing to write in a way and make me care for characters, but Romily did that. And she'll continue to do that. I felt so much for Bren (a mix of anger and sympathy which was so strange) and just really resonated with Wick. I was tearing my hair out at Griff and Wicket because of...reasons. And Milo, oh Milo. I need more of that guy. He's like a male Wicket which (duh) we really need!
So that reason it's a .5 missing? I feel like this book lacked description. I got some of it but there weren't evenly distributed sections. For me, it isn't a big deal (I don't imagine when I read, it's weird I know) I know for some, they'll find it annoying, but for me, it was something small but noteworthy.
All in all? I don't even need to sum up this review. Just go buy this book. Romily, please take my money!
