At times funny, at times heartbreaking, this is an ultimately uplifting story about the delicate fabric of family and friendship, and the painful realisation that not everything can remain the same forever.
Year Twelve is not off to a good start for Amelia. Art is her world, but her art teacher hates everything she does; her best friend has stopped talking to her; her mother and father may as well be living in separate houses; and her father is slowly forgetting everything. Even Amelia.
“…unfalteringly comical, witty and emotionally charged…”

“Before You Forget is an absorbing novel with memorable characters many readers will relate to and accurate, sensitive inclusion of mental health issues and their consequences for family and friends as well as the individuals concerned.”
