Top 10 Places to visit from Never Forgotten
Cedarburg, WI – picturesque little town with cute, original shops. Annually, they hold Strawberry Fest the third weekend in June, and Harvest Fest in third weekend in September.
Wisconsin State Fair – held in August, you don’t want to miss the any-kind-of-food-you-can-imagine-on-a-stick, the rides, the music, and the farm animals, of course. Racing piglets, anyone?
Peggy’s Cove – this is the town where Meara and her mother move. A small fishing village with a pristine lighthouse and gorgeous views of the ocean.
Chicago, IL – Okay, so Chicago is only mentioned in the book, but this town has everything! Wonderful entertainment, serious shopping opportunities, and fun restaurants to discover.
Museum of Natural History (Halifax, Nova Scotia) – The Monsters of the Deep exhibit was only temporary, but there are plenty of other interesting things to see and do in this museum.
University of King’s College (Halifax, Nova Scotia) – Visit the quaint campus where Evan studied. See the gorgeous brick buildings with the statuesque pillars. Maybe you’ll even learn something behind surrounded by such high academia.
BMO Centre (formerly Halifax Metro Center) – Go and see the Halifax Mooseheads play, and cheer on Evan’s team.
Halifax West High School (Halifax, Nova Scotia) – While not exactly convenient to Peggy’s Cove, this is where Meara finishes out her Senior year. Walk the halls and wonder what it would be like to be starting over – new kids, new teachers, new everything, really – when you are almost done with high school.
Halifax Shopping Centre (Halifax, Nova Scotia) – While back to school shopping, Meara and Katie have a heart to heart. This is also the mall where they holiday shop, and Ula shares a big secret.
Aberdeen, Scotland – Sure you have to cross the pond, but Scotland is David’s home country. Wild and beautiful, Scotland is a not to be missed gem.
How can one day go so very wrong? One minute Meara Quinn is making plans for how she will spend the Summer before her senior year and the next she’s finding out that her mother’s cancer has returned and they are moving away from the only home she’s ever known.
Now every day is a struggle as Meara is trying to cope with her mother’s illness, being forced to move to another country to live with grandparents—whom she thought disowned her mother—and having weird visions of a father who was absent her entire life. Top it all off with one whopping secret that everyone seems bent on keeping from her, and Meara has the perfect ingredients for a major melt down.
The only things keeping her from coming unglued are some new friends and Evan—the son of her mother’s childhood friend—who seems to know Meara almost better than she knows herself.
Together with Evan and her friends, Meara embarks on a new journey to unlock the secrets that will not only tell Meara who she is, but what she is.

Kelly Risser knew at a young age what she wanted to be when she grew up. Unfortunately, Fairytale Princess was not a lucrative career. Leaving the castle and wand behind, she entered the world of creative business writing where she worked in advertising, marketing, and training at various companies.
She’s often found lamenting, “It’s hard to write when there’s so many good books to read!” So, when she’s not immersed in the middle of someone else’s fantasy world, she’s busy creating one of her own. This world is introduced in her first novel, Never Forgotten.
Kelly lives in Wisconsin with her husband and two children. They share their home with Clyde the Whoodle and a school of fish.
