Guestpost & Giveaway: I Remember You by Cathleen Davitt Bell



Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Release Date: February 10th 2015
For fans of THE FUTURE OF US comes an engrossing story of two teens, whose love for each other is tested by time and fate.

Lucas and Juliet couldn’t be more different from each other. But from the moment Lucas sees Juliet, he swears he remembers their first kiss. Their first dance. Their first fight. He even knows what’s going to happen between them—not because he can predict the future, but because he claims to have already lived it.

Juliet doesn’t know whether to be afraid for herself or for Lucas. As Lucas’s memories occur more frequently, they also grow more ominous. All Juliet wants is to keep Lucas safe with her. But how do you hold on to someone you love in the present when they’ve begun slipping away from you in the future?



This is a book that shows you what true love is: heart stopping, mind bending, life changing. I Remember You is unforgettable. - Melissa Kantor, author of Maybe One Day

Well-developed and multidimensional supporting characters contribute to the book’s even pace. This romance novel has elements of science fiction, yet remains true and authentic to the intensity of feelings adolescents experience with their first loves. - School Library Journal

Cathleen Davitt Bell gets all the gorgeous details right in this smart, fast-paced, romantic thriller about the love you choose and the love that chooses you. This extraordinary love story transcends time and space but lucky for us, each moment happens in the hot here and now. I Remember You is unforgettable. - Arlaina Tibensky, author of And Then Things Fall Apart

I was breathless reading I Remember You, wishing I could time travel to the end and find out exactly what happens—and yet, not wanting to miss a minute of the drama along the way. It read like a younger version of The Time Traveler's Wife. - Jen Calonita, author of Side Effects

A unique romance about a girl who is solidly rooted in the present and a boy who "remembers the future" as if he's already experienced it. Is it possible to alter the future and, if so, how? - Lois Duncan, author of Stranger with My Face and Locked in Time





Since I Remember You is told from his girlfriend Juliet’s perspective, I’m going to tell you about Lucas as she knows him:

Lucas:

1.    It takes a little while to get that Lucas good looking. He’s got a few hockey-related scars on his face, some scruff and stubble, and at first you’re thinking, “He’d be cute without the nose.” Which looks like he broke it. Recently. But then his eyes crinkle when he smiles in a way that makes you see he is both smart and funny. His cropped blond hair catches the light...a lot. His jaw is square, and he’s got these thin Irish lips and amazing arms--you can tell they’re amazing even when he’s wearing a baggy shirt. Sigh.

2.     Something it took me awhile to come to terms with: Lucas isn’t the kind of guy who makes a lot of complex plans. He’s a big believer in “follow your gut.” And also? Not so much into homework. Which makes him really different from me. But he takes hockey seriously. He’s never late for rink times and when coach says pass the puck, he passes it.

3.     When his parents are fighting, Lucas puts his little brothers in his clunker of a car and takes them to Carvel for kiddy cups. He always gets one too and he always gets a gummy worm so they can have a gummy worm war. His gummy worm is named Serge and has a European accent. Serge taunts Tommy and Wendell’s gummy worms with long, nonsense insults, like “You are a toad from the Swamp of the Undesirables who has surfaced at the full moon to rain smelly sludge on the innocent.” Serge is trouble.

4.     Lucas’s worst nightmare is a) having to ever sit in a classroom again after graduating high school, b) working in an office or c) ending up doing construction because that’s what happens to guys who don’t like school and offices. Conveniently, he’s always known he’s going to be a Marine like his dad and grandpa and uncles and great uncles and just about any man he’s descended from. 

5.     I really, really love being with Lucas and I don’t know what I would do if he were every out of my life.

I was born in Princeton, NJ in 1971 and lived there until I was twelve, when we moved with my mom moved to West Hartford, CT.

My dad and mom had been divorced when I was two, and my dad lived in Williamstown, MA. I spent summers and school vacations with him.

I went to college in New York, at Barnard, and stayed in New York after I graduated. I worked as a newspaper reporter for three months, as a salesperson for a multimedia publisher for three years, and as a market researcher, and finally a copywriter.

I’m married and have two awesome kids ages two and five. I lived in Manhattan for sixteen years, but now am in Brooklyn, living downstairs from my sister and her family. I have two dogs named Oscar and Oprah. My favorite food is pizza and, strangely, in my thirties, I’ve developed a great love for playing catch. Slipping is my first book.
