Teach Me to Forget by @ericamchapman @Merit_Press #BookReview

 
This is the story of Ellery, a girl who learns how to live while waiting for the date she chose to die. 

Ellery's bought the gun, made arrangements for her funeral, and even picked the day. A Wednesday. Everything has fallen into place.

Now all she has to do is die.

When her plans go awry and the gun she was going to kill herself with breaks, she does the one thing she has control over--return it and get a new one. After tormenting the crusty customer service associate by trying to return the gun with the wrong receipt, Ellery gets caught by the security guard who also happens to be someone she knows--the annoyingly perfect Colter Sawyer from her English class.

Colter quickly uncovers what she's hiding and is determined to change her mind. After confessing a closely held secret of his own, he promises not to tell hers. Ellery tries to fight her attraction to him as the shadows of her past cling tight around her, but when she's faced with another tragedy, she must decide whether she can learn to live with what she's done or follow through with her plan to die.

Teach Me How to Forget is beautifully written and Chapman does such a fantastic job of describing how a character doesn't want to go on with their life. This book was very realistic which grabbed me from the very first page. And the friendship between Colter and Ellery was so great. Overall this was a great book.
