      I think I was a writer before I could even write I can remember laying awake in my bed as a small child dreaming up characters and adventures for them to take When I reached the age of thirteen, which was a million years ago my imagination could no loner be kept within the confines of my own head and I began to write them down Many a summer I laid out in the back yard on the lawn chair with a pen and a note book I ve since graduated to a couch and a laptop, but I m still writing.My all time favorite genre to write is young adult I ve tried to grow up a few times and write adult novels, but I always find myself going back to my roots YAY YA All of my books can be purchased at And come hit like on my Facebook page facebook pages Margar

    1. (Book read and reviewed for Read It & Reap 315 in the Shut Up And Read group.)This is the second book I read by this author, and like the previous one, I found it very easy to get into the story, always wanting to read "just one more chapter" before having to put it down. There was something pretty compelling to the writing, to the way the main character went about his life (though I'd have a hard time explaining how exactly such an effect was achieved).In any case, I found "Erased" to be [...]


    2. A beautiful story filled with all the things that make the teenage years both difficult and great except that everything is twisted because it’s told by 17-year-old Ryan Farnsworth who has just recovered from a crippling suicide attempt. Ryan’s memory has been totally erased, and now he doesn’t know who he is or what he was. Turns out that he was big man on campus, stud captain of the football team, boyfriend of the hottest girl in the school, and one of the worst bullies any educational i [...]


    3. I began reading Margaret Chatwin's ERASED yesterday, while using the elliptical machine during my lunch hour. Well, I ended up pedaling until my legs went numb and my lunch hour extended into two! This book is a potent depiction of second-chances. Written from teen jock Ryan's POV, the story opens with Ryan returning to a home -- and a family -- he can't remember hardly able to stand let alone walk. Injuries he sustained in a single-car crash nearly killed him and took a three-month hospital sta [...]


    4. A surprisingly compelling read, though the dialogue was a little clunky and the characters a little inconsistent sometimes. It works mostly as a take-down of "toxic masculinity"; it's a What If? story about what would happen to this type of guy if everything got stripped away, in this case quite literally via amnesia. I kind of wish that the author had gone even further with the idea, and had the main character Ryan exploring even more issues re gender, socioeconomic status, etc in addition to t [...]


    5. Fascinating I want this in a first reads giveaway.I thought of this but not knowing what to think it is out of my usual genre but I needed something different. Different is exactly what I got and I loved it. I love the main character Ryan with all of his flaws and his blunt honesty to the readers. I feel like the other was able to capture the perfect emotions and thoughts of a teenage boy dealing with deep issues. I don’t know what I would do if I woke up with no memory and not really liking [...]


    6. contacted the Author Margaret Chatwin about this book, and she gave me a copy in exchange for a review.Ryan was speeding and busted through the guard rail, sailed out over the ravine and landed at the bottom in a barely recognizable crumpled mess. He was not wearing his seat belt. A botched suicide attempt is what they tell Ryan, but he doesn't remember a thing. Ryan wakes up with no memories about his life and a badly broken body. He can recall everything else that has happened all these years, [...]


    7. My Favorite Lines:“If you think I’m over-exaggerating or being whiny when I say that, you go throw yourself off of a cliff, break damn near every bone in your body and then get back to me about the matter.”“It’s weird enough being in a foreign place, but now this place is packed with complete strangers that know more about me than I know about myself.”“I don’t think she’s stopped looking at me since I got up off the grass. It’s a different way of looking at someone. Not like [...]


    8. I got this for free on and that makes me glad. there' s nothing better then a great book for free.Ryan is 17 and just woke up after being in a coma, that’s not his only and or worse problem since he’s suffering from amnesia and has multiple scars and a limping leg. The thing is what ended up in the hospital in the first place is that he did it on purpose he tried to off himself.We learn about Ryan struggles when is he’s trying to get back on his feet which is very hard; he struggles when [...]


    9. *An e-copy of this book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.*Erased by Margaret Chatwin is a compelling young adult novel about second chances. Although Ryan has had a terrible car accident and is suffering from amnesia he confronts his demons head on.As he begins to regain memories, he is shocked by his past and wants to make amends to those around him. A read with a positive message.


    10. Great ReadI enjoyed this uplifting story! It kept me interested and I found that I didn't want to put it down. I look forward to reading more by this author.


    11. This is a great novel that I’m sure everyone, teens and adults alike, would get something out of reading. The author allows you to connect at the characters on the deepest level, feel their pain, enjoy their successes, actually care about them. The relationships between the characters in this book, especially the familial relationships, but also between friends and significant others, will stick with me long after finishing. The idea of the book is this: What if you could take a look at your l [...]


    12. Erased is about a teenage boy named Ryan Farnsworth, a high school football star, girl-magnet, and the most popular guy in school. In the opening chapter, he is engaged in a terrible car crash when his sports car at high speed plunges into a ravine. He wakes up a physical and amnesiac mess, patched together with nuts and bolts, the bones in his body cracked, fractured or broken. He doesn't remember his past, not even his handsome wealthy parents, Wendy and Craig Farnsworth. And so begins Ryan's [...]


    13. What drew me to read the book was its high rating mark plus the loss of memory idea.For some reason I thought this book belongs to the thriller-mystery books, but found out that is philosophic- psychological-drama. Unfortunately I was not in the mood for reading plain drama. It is a book without any twist, just a day to day kind of diary, written by a teenager "reborn" at age 17 after a car self-accident. It is dealing with a boy that all its cognitive skills are intact but has no memories regar [...]


    14. I dont usually like books about sports and find it hard to read through books about bullies but I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Such a good story about second chances, even if most of the characters in this story were actually truly horrible people who didnt deserve any kind of happy ending.


    15. O loved loved itI can not tell you how much I enjoyed this book. It is by far in the top four of my all time favorites. I can't wait to read more by her.


    16. 4.5 starsErased was such a surprisingly good read. I thought the idea sounded interesting and right from the first page I was hooked. I loved that it was written from a guys point of view. It was just a really great book about Ryan becoming the guy he has always wanted to be and reconciling/fixing who he used to be. The main thing he needs to fix is his relationship with Luc and it really is a story of Ryan and Luc becoming brothers again. It is just a feel good book. By the end you are just hap [...]


    17. Find my review (also) on my Blog BettgeschichtenI received a free copy of Erased by Margaret Chatwin in exchange for a honest review. Let me start this review by pointing out that this book has a male protagonist, something I don’t come across often. I must admit that it was a very refreshing and fun change. This fact already lead me into liking Erased. When I first read the synopsis of Erased on , I immediately knew that it’s exactly the type of story, which I would enjoy. It deals with mem [...]


    18. This review is also available on Gemstreet Reviews*** I received a copy of the this ebook through Read-It-And-Reap () for an honest review.***After a long and tiring day, I was about to sleep but decided to just have a look at the book I was planning to read next. An hour and a half later I realised that sleep was a foregone thought. I could not let go of the book, it was that captivating.As the blurb suggests, Ryan Farnsworth is a seventeen year old who has survived a suicide attempt but has lo [...]


    19. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewASED by Margaret Chatwin Rating:I give the book 4.5 of 5 starsI liked this book very much. The story is sweet and heart warming. It was interesting from the start on. It was easy to read and I kept wanting to know what would happen in the next chapter. The mood was right, not to overly depressing but you do get the deep feelings trough. This book is about discovering your own individuality and be who you really are or want to be ins [...]


    20. What an emotional book! I can't imagine going through something like that. To wake up and not know all the people around you! That would be terrifying. Then the more time you spend with family and friends the more you start to realize you were unbelievably cruel to everyone. Watching Ryan struggle to remember and try figure out why he tried to kill himself all the while struggling with the pain was heartbreaking. Yes, he was a cruel person before but he has a second chance now and I was so afrai [...]


    21. Disclaimer. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.In a word—phenomenal. I've read a lot of books this year. And this one was amazing. At times, I wanted to cry. I wanted to scream. My insides hurt. The main character had it all. He's got the looks, the girl, friends, a doting father, supportive mother, an amazing arm (he's a star football player), and was incredibly popular. But he's also got a screwed up relationship with his family. And is scared to dea [...]

    23. I really enjoyed this book about second chances. Told from Ryan's POV, it shows Ryan's struggle as he returns home after more than 100 days in the hospital due to a car wreck. He has amnesia and debilitating injuries, with no memory of who he was or family and friends. He learns from others that he MAY have tried to kill himself, prior to ruling the school as the popular, good-looking captain of the football team.We go on the journey with him as he tries to reconcile who he is with who he was, a [...]


    24. I was so pleasantly surprised by this book. I had no preconceived notions going in and I simply loved it.This story of a young man, a high school football star and his unsuccessful attempt at ending his life was so well written. I felt every emotion that Ryan Farnsworth felt. He didn't remember his former life and this book is basically his struggle to move forward and repair some of the past.Ryan meets a girl "from the wrong side of the tracks" and is immediately drawn to her. With Paige Parker [...]


    25. The concept of Erased was very interesting. Ryan Farnsworth begins the book by getting in a car accident and the first chapter picks up a few months later when he's returning home from the hospital. Ryan has no memory of why he drove his car off the road let alone who he is. His parents try to get him back into his old life as soon as possible but it's obvious that he's not the same person mentally or physically. His injuries didn't just cause him amnesia, they also left him with sever muscle lo [...]


    26. After 103 excruciating days in the hospital recuperating from a botched suicide attempt, Ryan Farnsworth returns home to pick up the pieces of his life. However, the car wreck that almost killed him successfully robbed him of his memory: of his family, his friends, his past, everything. Erased by Margaret Chatwin is the excellent telling of Ryan’s second chance at life, his discovery of who he was and his desire to become someone better. As the story unfolds, we slowly get glimpses of what kin [...]


    27. In exchange for an honest review, I was given the book "Erased" by Margaret Chatwin through Read It & Reap on .Ryan, Captain of his high school football team, boyfriend of the most beautiful & popular girl at school and king of his family. He had everything, including money, parents who loved him and the best of friends, until he wakes up in the hospital after a devastating car accident with no clue who he, or anyone else, is.Ryan spends 100+ grueling days in the hospital, surgeries, cou [...]


    28. WOW WOW WOW!!! I dont quite know what to say. An absolutely amazing read, everyone should read it. I loved Ryan one minute and thought he was an absolute jerk in the next minute. He really came through in the end though for Luc and for Paige. Not remembering everything he did to people must have been hard but the fact that when he did remember, he didn't go back to his old ways really does prove that people can change. I was a bit unsure of Ryans parents at first but as I kept reading I grew to [...]


    29. This book had me hooked from the get go! I like Margaret’s books because she can make you feel the characters and you really get to know them. This was a great book, and although she did smash the Camero haha , it was a great story. I liked how Rian and Luc got on good terms. There were a few times I wanted to choke people or just be them and handle it differently, but that is why Margaret is amazing! She can put you in a fictional situation and make it seem real. Make you want to jump in the [...]


    30. I downloaded Erased on my Nook yesterday. I did something I rarely do. I set aside a book I'm already in the process of reading to read something else this morning. Since it rained all day and I had to wait for the UPS guy I finished the entire book by dinner time because it was just that damn good! -Those readers who are petty enough to judge a book by the cover before reading it shouldn't. I was slapped with every emotion possible and even found myself crying at one point. Very few books have [...]
