Listen to “Forgetting What I Couldn’t Remember” on Audible NOW!

Yet more news about this book that is so important to me, is that it is now available on Audible and iTunes for your listening pleasure. And the more I thought about it, I realized why this particular process was so emotional for me.

51p4nPsPGBLIf you didn’t already know, this book is about a girl named Vera who goes back in time to confront her old middle school bullies. Basically, I’m Vera, and it’s because I was never able to fight back against the problematic people I was forced to share a classroom with for years. There were so many odd and messed up private school politics to consider, and I weighed my options – which meant I wasn’t willing to risk a black mark on my otherwise perfect permanent record. So here I am, ten years later, and I’m writing about it instead. Of course, there’s a bigger narrative happening than just that – there’s friendship, romance, and growing up.

Hearing the words I desperately wanted to say out loud in an audible format has been just insanely cathartic for me. I didn’t realize how much I was holding in until I dug deep below the surface of my scarred-over psyche. Bullying is no joke, and it’s even worse when the people who are supposed to protect you from it render you vulnerable instead. My narrator, Chelsea Kwoka, is just incredibly talented, and shared that this experience meant so much to her as well:

“Narrating Forgetting What I Couldn’t Remember was an incredibly fun experience. Not only are the characters unique and a blast to ‘hang out with’ but the author, Angelina, was incredibly collaborative throughout the whole process! Working with a strong female writer to bring a strong female character off the page is always the highlight of any audiobook for me. A story like this can be difficult, when people grow on the page and you can’t always be sure who to trust, but it was an exciting challenge that I looked forward to every day. The book touches on the parts of life that are in some ways universal, but also very unique to ourselves, and I believe there is something for everyone in here.”

Her favorite scene / character?

“Without giving anything away of course, I have to say that the climax of the book was by far my favorite to record. Vera has gone through so much, and suffered greatly, and this scene – for me – is the tipping point where she truly stands up for herself and comes into her own. I can’t say how that pans out for her, but it was exhilarating to record a scene so full of emotion and history between all the characters involved coming to a head! A personal favorite character would probably be Willow. She is such a breath of fresh air when Vera needs it most. While we are right there with Vera through all the twists and turns, Willow shows up perky and positive and none the wiser! She really helps snap Vera back to ‘reality’ (this one at least 😉) and is the brightness in the otherwise cloudy and confusing world of time travel.”

There you have it folks! This audiobook and my others are available now on Amazon HERE.
