"Charming, poignant, and funny, How to Forget Almost Everything is a wonderfully written coming-of-age tale that vibrates with truth."  - Annie Hartnett, author of Rabbit Cake and Unlikely Animals   

"the fifteen-year-old philosopher and dear friend that we all need right now, no matter our age, and I honestly can't remember a time when a character—and an entire book—made me feel so gleeful about living in our uncertain world."  - Justin Hocking, author of The Great Floodgates of the Wonderworld and PS: The Wolves   

"Joshua James Amberson creates a character who's familiar and intimate, someone to root for, to cheer on, to be angry at, to welcome home. His book presents a world in which it might be easier to forget but ultimately you—and Elly—come to understand that our memories, fleeting and fragile and imprecise, are what make us whole."  - Tomas Moniz, author of Big Familia and All Friends Are Necessary
