Remind me how this ends is the third young adult novel written by Gabrielle Tozer. I have read all three of her novels and soon will be releasing a children’s picture book which I am excited to see.
Leaving school is always hard you don’t know what you want to do or even how you want to do it, factor in a partner you have been with going through the same thing it is always going to be a little more awkward. Unfortunately for Milo he is going through this as well as over obsessive parents who are pushing/waiting for his decision as to what he wants to do.
Working for his parents in their bookstore (umm I would love if my parents owned a bookstore) he has absolutely zero drive in his life and seems extremely content. It seems Milo’s only problem is the fact that his girlfriend is off having fun with her new uni friends away in Canberra, to be honest this is the most frustrating part of the character build up of Milo! You can not have your cake and eat it too!!!
One day whilst at work a childhood friend for the past comes into the bookstore during Milo’s shift, Layla used to live next door to Milo but had moved away while they were still young and her current situation has brought her back to her home town much to her disgust, but will the friendship she redevelops with Milo be worth the disgruntled return?
I really enjoyed Remind Me How this ends , it is extremely different from Gabrielle’s last two novels but I found the character development written really well that you couldn’t help but go on the emotional rollercoaster of being unsure in life with Milo and Layla. The novel is written from a split point of view from both Milo and Layla which I believe made the novel build up different, I think if the focus was from one point of view it would not have worked as well.
If you are looking for a light hearted winter read I highly recommend getting this novel and sitting with a hot chocolate
