Doesn’t matter who did it. Not anymore. I did the time. It’s over.”
When Drix was convicted of a crime—one he didn’t commit—he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.
Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.
When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.
But sometimes love can breach all barriers.
Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves—Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence—and each other to finally get what they deserve.

Review of Say You’ll Remember Me
Review (4 Stars): I remember all too well what it felt like to be a teenager and trying to find your own place in the world. For Elle and Drix, they came from two very different backgrounds brought together by one chance meeting on the midway. Elle wanted to be a computer programmer and live her life the way that she wanted to but that meant going against her dutiful image as the governor’s daughter. Drix appeared to be a bad boy but he was so much more than that. He wanted to protect his family and that meant taking the blame for a robbery he didn’t commit and dealing with the consequences of those actions. He had big dreams like Elle and wanted more out of his life than what he currently had. By being with Elle, he felt that he could make those dreams happen and it hurt to watch the bumps that these two characters experienced on their journey together.
This is the second book that I’ve read from Ms. McGarry and I enjoyed Elle and Drix’s beautifully written story. These two characters may have come from different sides of the tracks but their connection was something so meaningful that they couldn’t stay away from each other. They could see the true person behind the image that they portrayed to everyone around them and had to work through the fact that Elle’s family tried to keep them apart. This was a great story for me and will stay with me for quite some time.
