Today, I am delighted to host the Blog Tour organized by TBR and Beyond Tours for Forget This ever Happened. 

 

Sometimes there’s a town called Indianola.

And sometimes there isn’t.

Summer, 1993. Claire has been dumped in rural Indianola, Texas, to spend her whole vacation taking care of mean, sickly Grammy. There’s nothing too remarkable about Indianola: it’s run-down, shabby, and stifling hot, a pin-dot on the Gulf Coast.

Well, there is one remarkable thing, she discovers. Something otherworldly.

But if you leave Indianola, you forget about it… and if you stay, you have to live with it every day.

Because there’s a confluence of energies at Indianola, a fissure in time and space, a gap in reality. Nothing is as it seems. And unless Claire can figure out this town–the talkative lizards under the pecan trees; the honey-sweet but terrifying girl next door; the cute daughter of a powerful family, who would answer Claire’s questions if she had any answers; the pervasive sense of history coming unspooled, like a video tape–she might never leave.

Featuring a mindbending plot, heartfelt queer romance, brilliant writing, and intricate worldbuilding, Forget This Ever Happened is a lush and thrilling genre-bender perfect for the Black Mirror generation.

“They expect everyone to just know when they pass the city limits.”

Forget this Happened revolves around Claire who has to spend her summer helping out her sick grandmother in Indianola. She misses the boy she has started falling for and isn’t happy to get dragged away from. Claire sees her whole summer draining away, helping her grandmother clean the house and cooking for her. But then she meets Audrey and Julie and strange things start happening around her that she can’t explain.

The plot of the book was something which I haven’t ever come across before. It was a perfect blend of mystery, contemporary situations and science.  It was quite charming on it’s own and did not have to depend on characters or any other elements to shine.

The character were quite relatable and were presented in a contemporary way. I was impressed by the character developments throughout the book.

“Sometimes we have to make sacrifices.”

The writing style, without a doubt was really engaging! It does not need much words to express how good it was. I can assure you that once you start to author’s writing there is no way out until you finish the entire book!
