I wish I had amnesia …

27May08

… that way I could read this book over and over again like it was the first time through.

(Wow, this has been a long time coming.) Forget About It is yet another great book by the witty and smart Caprice Crane (thanks for lending me this book, Tim!). Awhile back I reviewed her first novel, Stupid and Contagious.

This time around the story is a little longer to get through, as the plot feels … “thicker.” Nonetheless, it’s another fun read. Forget About It takes us into the world of a doormat named Jordan—and like all doormats, her life sucks (you know, with people walking all over her and all). After getting in a minor accident, however, Jordan seizes the opportunity and fakes amnesia.

Pretending to suffer the effects of retrograde amnesia with the help of her best friend Todd, Jordan is able to become the self-confident woman she’s always wanted to be—and has more than a little fun doing it. Her life is finally going the way she wants it to go—that is, until a minor problem regarding her fake amnesia (“Damnesia!”) incident threatens to ruin her flourishing relationship with Mr. Right. On top of that, she actually gets amnesia … but for real this time.

Once again, Crane delivers. Although I’m not sure I liked it as much as Stupid and Contagious, this one was fun, creative, and funny just like Stupid. It’s definitely worth picking up.

  1. I was thinking about this book in the car today and I always have this super creepy image of Jordan’s mother and sister. Because of the fact that they dress identically at times. *shudder* Poor Jordan

    Sadly it looks like Caprice Crane is taking a break from Novels to work on a Screenplay. Hopefully that won’t suck XD

  2. Ew, I know! That creeped me out, too, trying to picture them. 😀

    Ohh, really? Huh. (Lol, yeah, hopefully.)
