I Remember You by Cathleen Davitt Bell
This story is all about memories. Memories of what it is to be young, to be in high school again and to be in love. First love to be exact. Cathleen Davitt Bell does a wonderful job of taking the reader through the young lives of Lucas and Juliet. The way she describes their relationship, how when two people see, really see, each other for the first time or how a person smells or how their smile makes you feel.
It all starts at the beginning of a new school year. Lucas a senior, and Juliet a junior, see each other in a high school physics class. They seem to have a normal relationship except for the fact the Lucas has a strange ability to see things that have yet to happen. Like when a classmate’s house burns down – Lucas had told Juliet that this would occur beforehand.
For Juliet, this is tormenting – knowing Lucas can tell her what’s going to happen. It almost feels as if an older version of Lucas inhabits a younger body. Then, suddenly a life threatening injury occurs and Lucas can no longer remember what he had called the dreams. This is even more traumatic for Juliet as she no longer knows what to think. Did some part of her boyfriend die or did he actually have a serious brain injury. And how will this affect their relationship? You will have to read this book to find out and to remember how it felt to be young again.
