Theodora "Teddi" Donovan and Calvin Wynne have always hated each other. They didn't have a choice after Teddi's bootlegger father killed Calvin's and left them both orphaned. The scandal has fueled gossip in quiet, quaint Brookhurst, New York, for over a decade. When a friendship develops between them as teenagers, they are ridiculed and shunned by the strict society that dictates life in their town. As they grow older, friendship turns into love, and Teddi and Calvin have to choose between their future and the scepter of their past. Spanning continents and decades, Forget Me Not is a coming-of-age story about truth, self-reliance, and the freeing power of love.

Review
Forget Me Not is set in the time of the second world war. I love reading books that have that part of history in them. Overall, it spans a couple of decades and has quite a bit of history in it.
Teddi’s father killed Calvin’s father when they were young. However, as teenagers Teddi and Calvin became really good friends. This friendship eventually turned into love. Back during this time, everyone held grudges so Teddi and Calvin face a lot ridicule because of their relationship. This story shows how secrets can destroy everything but it also is about friends and family.
I look forward to reading more from Allison Whitmore.
