Book Review: Don’t You Forget About Me by Jancee Dunn

Posted on: October 7, 2008

As a child of the 80s (I graduated in 1990), I enjoyed the flashback aspect of this novel. The music, the clothes, the teenage dramas.

However, the story seemed to drag on forever, full of constant, unnecessary name-dropping from the 80s. And Lillian started to get on my nerves, she was so intent on reliving her high school days. I wanted to yell at her a couple times to just grow up and move on already! What 38-year-old woman would act like this?

It was predictable too, as you just knew that Lillian would once again dump her not-so-cool friend to hang out with the popular girls at the reunion. And that she would miss the signs from the quiet, but good guy while she craved the attentions of the moody but popular bad boy who treated her like crap. Please.

Overall, I was somewhat disappointed. It was light reading, and had funny moments, but the main character was just too annoying.
