David Cook's Unforgettable reviews the lives of three young women, Gabrielle, Althea, and Stephanie, who were adopted by Dr. Daniel Ross and his wife after tragic events caused social services to take over their care. The couple raises the children, and they become well-adjusted adults who develop strong opinions and love each other fiercely. On Dr. Ross's first birthday following his death, the sisters and their adopted mother relate their story to Joy, who, like Stephanie, was saved by Dr. Ross's medical intervention. Jade and her daughters discuss the events that brought them together, their bonds, challenges, and Dr. Ross's miracle cure.
David Cook embraces powerful topics that will leave many readers ready to take action for more mental health interventions and against gun violence. His novella serves to save three girls before they die young and pays tribute to the girls and young women whose lives were ended by gun violence and other tragedies. Cook provides a list of names of bright young people who weren't able to spread their light and intelligence after their untimely deaths, and readers will shed tears as they learn about the sad events that ended their lives. The author's words give a voice to the young women whose lives ended too soon, and Gabrielle, Althea, and Stephanie demonstrate great qualities, making them good role models. Readers who enjoy young adult stories will love Unforgettable, and everyone could benefit from researching the girls and young women who inspired its creation.
