Say You’ll Remember Me – Katie McGarry


I read my first Katie McGarry novel in October of 2014. Even after so many years, I still remember how captivated, and engaged I felt. I devoured the book even though it was strictly YA. Since then I read more and more YA – including many exceptional books by other authors. But Katie McGarry’s books were pretty much the first young adult novels I ever gave a try.

Say you’ll Remember Me was the first book by this author I picked up in recent years and I’m glad to report, nothing has changed. I’m still as engrossed as ever before.

For me, her books are TRUE representations of the Young Adult genre. Authentic teenage troubles. Characters that struggle with real and relatable situations. And she excels at writing teenage relationships that work without immediately jumping into bed.

Her writing is fluent, smart, engaging and engrossing. I was immediately sucked in. Delighted by the characters, and falling in love with the story and cast.

I loved the forbidden aspect of the plot. The convict, and the governor’s daughter. Drix and Elle were both mature, and very aware of their responsibilities towards family and society. They both struggled to find a middle ground, a way to be themselves, while simultaneously satisfying everyone else’s expectations.

The depth of feelings between the couple was true, tangible, and a delight. Their trust in each other, as well as their never-ending faith was heartwarming and distinctively Katie McGarry. She excels in writing characters that are beyond their years and display a maturity that delights me to no end. And a good amount of angst and wonderful honest dialogues left me raw and deeply engaged.

I was very happy that I picked up this novel. It brought back memories and confirmed why I enjoyed her Pushing the Limits Series so much. I’m looking forward reacquainting myself with there work.

Say You’ll Remember Me – Katie McGarry


When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the new Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.

Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.

When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.

But sometimes love can breach all barriers.

Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves–Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence–and each other to finally get what they deserve.

    1. I like her books. Always have. And I would absolutely recommend her books if you like YA. At least try one to see if you enjoy her writing. 😉

  1. Katie McGarry is my go-to when it comes to YA. She writes with such realism and her stories and characters feel completely authentic. I really loved Drix and Elle’s story. My heart broke for Drix again and again and he struggled so hard to do better and be better.

    1. I couldn’t have said it any better!!!! That’s exactly why I read her books. Compared to the other gloom and doom out there, her books are refreshing and real. I’m glad you loved it! 😊

  2. Great review! I am SO excited to read this. I’ve actually been going through a Katie McGarry binge, rereading my favorites from the Pushing the Limitis Series and the motorcycle club one. It reminds me just why I love them! I have to be in the mood for a more gritty romance, but when I am these are perfect. This is moving to the top of my to read list because I am JUST SO EXCITED.
