The Memory Book by Lara Avery

Goodreads Blurb: 
Sammie was always a girl with a plan: graduate at the top of her class and get out of her small town as soon as humanly possible. Nothing will stand in her way--not even a rare genetic disorder the doctors say will slowly start to steal her memories and then her health. What she needs is a new plan.

So the Memory Book is born: Sammie's notes to her future self, a document of moments great and small. It's where she'll record every perfect detail of her first date with longtime crush, Stuart--a brilliant young writer who is home for the summer. And where she'll admit how much she's missed her childhood best friend, Cooper, and even take some of the blame for the fight that ended their friendship.

Through a mix of heartfelt journal entries, mementos, and guest posts from friends and family, readers will fall in love with Sammie, a brave and remarkable girl who learns to live and love life fully, even though it's not the life she planned.

Things  I  Liked:

1) I really enjoyed the writing. It was actually pretty funny which I always enjoy.

2) I enjoyed the memory portion in the book. It was not done the way I thought it would have been though. 

Things I Was Not Fond Of:

1) Sammie wanted a lot of validation from guys and I just didn't agree with it. 

2) The whole love aspect of the book was lame to me. It was very predictable and a copout at the end.

3) The ending-Although it was hinted at in the beginning was the shortest thing ever with no explanation what so ever.

My rating:
