The Parts I Remember by A.K. Mills ~Tour~

 Act first. Think never. Remember nothing.

Welcome to Kelly Rockport’s existence at Haysville University, where responsibility is just an elective. After all, fake IDs, alter egos, and one-night stands are all part of the college experience, right?  So what if she blacks out from time to time?  Memory is overrated.

When freshman year lasts about as long as a one-night stand and is quickly followed by the Year of the Blackout, Kelly projects junior year to be nothing shy of amazing. But as shots, beer, cocaine and men mesh together in an intoxicating haze, Kelly’s reckless ways get her into serious trouble. The only problem is, she can't remember what happened.

As she hovers along the edge of consciousness, Kelly forces herself to think past her pain to piece together the shards of her life. This is her story, told in her words: The Parts I Remember.

My Opinion
Wow, I can say I've NEVER read anything quite like this.
The story is so strong and real, that during some parts I could actually relate to Kelly, the main character.
Kelly is by far reckless...who gives a damn attitude. Some of her decisions are very questionable. 
Drinking until you pass out....sex with whoever....Drugs....Not remembering any of it!!!!!
Not exacatly what you go to college for.
Definitely a what you shouldn't do in life and if in fact you do....this could totally happen to you.

Fair warning this book will take you on a emotional roller-coaster and no it doesn't stop with the ending. It says with you after you're done reading it.

Ms. Mills did a wonderful job with writing her characters and the story is beyond words at this point.
I would recommend this is all those entering college, in college or "can't wait" to go to college.


About the Author
"I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." 
- Julia Roberts, Notting Hill

To put it simply...
"I'm just a writer, standing in front of the world, asking it to enjoy her stories."

Past: Reading has always been a passion of mine. I remember as a child getting lost in Nancy Drew mysteries late at night with a flashlight long after bedtime, unable to sleep until the story was done. Summer vacations didn't properly start without first visiting the bookstore and selecting a fresh story. Unfortunately, I could never read in the car because of motion sickness. Writing was something I did mostly in private.

Present: I still can't read in the car, but my love of books hasn't diminished. I recently opened a time capsule that was buried in 1999 and my hope for the year 2010 was to have published my first novel. Three years later, that dream is coming to fruition as The Parts I Remember will be published on March 1, 2013.

Future: My husband asked me if nothing else mattered, what I would want to do with my life. The first and only thing that came to mind was writing. And that is exactly what I plan on doing.
