Forget Me Not (From the Life of Willa Havisham) by Coleen Paratore

Forget Me NotIt's summer once more in Bramble, Cape Cod, and Willa Havisham has it all planned out: dates with her cute boyfriend Joe, helping around her parents' inn, hanging out with her friends - old and new - and having her usual early walks on the beach. Not to mention all the books she plans to read and all the candy she will eat.

Things are not always easy, though: Joe seems to be thinking mostly about baseball, her best friend Tina is spending most of her time with Ruby (a girl who couldn't be more opposite to Willa), her step-father's sister wants to be married at the inn and Willa's Mom has put her in charge of the event. Oh and birds are creating controversy at the beach that Willa enjoys the most.

It might seem like things aren't exactly going Willa's way but she's not to be discouraged! Willa finds ways to help out, turn things around and even play cupid a little.

I'm a long-time Willa fan, there is no changing that and Forget Me Not is a nice a book as any other, Willa is funny and smart (though, I got to admit that, at times she seems a bit 'too good' but she does have her moments of jealousy that make her more human and real to me) and I love reading her books as much as she loves reading books.

I got a huge surprise in this book, one I never expected and I can't wait to read the next installment in the Willa-Chronicles (Wish I Might, coming out May 1st, 2010) to find out how everything is resolved.

Over all, there is plenty of Willa to love in this book.
