I Almost Forgot About You

"When every day feels the same and the needle just doesn't move?" ~ pg. 197

Dr. Georgia Young has a wonderful life—a fulfilling career as an optometrist, best girlfriends and a loving family. But she feels stuck and ready for a change. There is a greater meaning to life and Georgia intends to discover it. The first step is contacting the men she loved just to let them know she didn't forget about them; she chooses to remember.

Listen. Terry McMillan clearly took her time writing this one. I Almost Forgot About You is a story well thought out and well written. I took my time reading to appreciate every part of this grown woman story. By the last page, I was inspired to actively start a project of my own similar to the main character's. Not too many fiction books urge me to take action in this way. Kudos to the author!

I Almost Forgot About You is not a fast-paced story nor is it full of drama. Instead readers will get something more valuable: a well-told story that is relatable to any mature woman during any stage of her life. It will encourage readers to embrace change and take chances. How many times have you wondered "what if" or daydreamed about possibilities? How many times have you almost forgot about someone from your past? Let this fiction story help remind you.

Happy Pub Day, Terry McMillan! I Almost Forgot About You is available today.
