Product description

Product Description

You can erase the memory. But you cannot erase the crime.

Jenny’s wounds have healed. An experimental treatment has removed the memory of a horrific and degrading attack. She is moving on with her life.

That was the plan. Except it’s not working out. Something has gone. The light in her eyes. And something was left behind. A scar. On her lower back. Which she can’t stop touching. And she’s getting worse. Not to mention that her father is obsessed with finding her attacker and her mother is in toxic denial.

It may be that the only way to uncover what’s wrong is to help Jenny recover her memory. But even if it can be done, pulling at the threads of her suppressed experience will unravel much more than the truth about her attack.

And that could destroy as much as it heals…

"All Is Not Forgotten" by Wendy Walker is an incredibly, riveting, original psychological thriller. Jenny Kramer, 15, is drunk when she wanders into the woods at a teenage party where she is brutally raped and scared. The rapist wore a condom and shaved all his body hair. When she is at the hospital her parents, Tom and Barbara, consent to the doctors giving her a new drug that will erase her memory of the attack. While Jenny's body heals, she won't have to deal with the psychological trauma. Sadly, although the drug is effective in repressing the memories, Jenny (and the rest of town) still know that she was raped. She still feels the scar the rapist gave her but she has absolutely no memory whatsoever of what actually happened. Her thoughts and feelings become out of sync and she begins to suffer. This dark psychological thriller will creep up on you. There is more going on than it appears, and secrets are slowly revealed. Even after you think you have something figured out, you won't. “All Is Not Forgotten” required slow, careful reading, it is a page turner, but it is a complicated novel too.The narration by Dr. Alan Forrester is pitch-perfect. He's egotistical, kind of creepy - the professional with the inside information of each individual and he's the one who is going to slowly tell you what he wants you to know when he thinks it is time. By the end I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this dark thriller and its twists and turns. Apparently, Resse Witherspoon's production company has already bought the film rights to "All is Not Forgotten". I am not surprised, this will be an intense yet riveting viewing, just as it was a read.

This is very much the story of Jenny. Of her rape; her parents' decision to try to assist her to forget the attack and move on; and - on failing to do so - the resulting attempts to recover her memories of the night in question.

However... we're not in Jenny's head. At all. Ever. She's quoted - in police reports, second hand accounts and directly in interviews - but the entire story is delivered in first person (occasionally second) by Jenny's psychiatrist (Dr Forrester) who is initially on the periphery. It took some getting used to and for some time I wasn't sure if the approach was clever or confusing.

Jenny's decision to attempt to reacquire her memories coincide with a break in her rape case. New information comes to light and Jenny, her family and the police are keen for Forrester to play a role in helping to put her perpetrator behind bars.

However.... Forrester is a complex host for we readers. Seemingly objective in relaying much of the case, he ends up with a few secrets of his own.

And for me anyway - Forrester became less likeable. The straight talking narrator was fine, but by the time he meets Jenny and her parents and sees himself as their saviour we indeed realise he seems to have a bit of a god complex and is wonderfully (and not in a good way) arrogant.

My thoughts on this book varied throughout. In parts I found the good psychiatrist so icky that I just wanted to stop reading. At other times it seemed the outcome was going to be obvious, so I wanted to stop reading. As it happened, I wouldn't have picked the twists - as we're not entirely privy to everything, though given clues - but ultimately glad I kept going.

A teenaged girl is raped, for an hour, with rest breaks. And then she has a line ‘carved’ in her lower back. Weird.

It’s an involved story, told by what is at first an anonymous narrator, who appears to have a direct, personal association with the action and whom we will meet later (which we do).

“I couldn’t say how much of this was true when I heard it, this story of the rape of Jenny Kramer. It was a story that had been reconstructed with forensic evidence, witness accounts, criminal psychologist profiles, and the disjointed, fragmented scraps of memory Jenny was left with after the treatment.”

Jenny had been invited to a party by Doug, on whom she had a crush, but he seemed to be attracted to someone else, so she cried and took off for the woods.

I sometimes found the narrator’s language and tone affected and pretentious, like an amateur teen sleuth, trying to sound grown-up.

“Doug had been with another girl, a junior who found him necessary to her plan to make some senior boy jealous. It is hardly worth the effort to elucidate the vapid motivations of this particular girl. What mattered to Jenny was that a week’s worth of fantasies, around which she had wrapped much of her disposition, had been shattered in a second.”

Elucidate vapid motivations? She had wrapped much of her disposition?

Anyway, Jenny drinks up, gets sick, and runs off to escape humiliation, only to end up facing rape instead.

The medical system tries to erase Jenny’s memories, and when it’s clear she is still very troubled in spite of not remembering the details of that night, a psychiatrist is consulted. He, it transpires, is our narrator. And a rather condescending one he is.

“My name is Dr. Alan Forrester.
