Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that’s left is a note telling her about a day she can’t remember. The whole scenario doesn’t exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can’t seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can’t make sense of, she realizes it’s time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.
Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if’s in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies.
What a brilliant premise. Really, I think I’m a little in love with it! A girl who remembers her future instead of her past! How awesome is that!? Not only did the great premise make for a gripping read, but it made me constantly think what would I do in London’s situation. How would forgetting everything in the past effect simple day to day things. How would it effect relationships, interactions, everything? That was the thing I loved most about Forgotten, it made me put myself in London’s shoes. It was very thought provoking.
I was hooked very early on in Forgotten. It was a fast and hard to put down read, because you had to know what was going on! It was completely unpredictable. The mystery was fantastically done, because I never saw those things coming. I really love unreliable narratives too, and London was kind unreliable. She could easily lie or keep things from herself, and in turn keep things from the reader. That made for some surprising events!
Speaking of London, I think she was wonderful! She was very believable, and even though she was in this impossible situation she was very easy to relate to. The other people in her life, namely Luke, were also great. The romance was sweet and it might have made me swoon a little. Luke was definitely a swoon-worthy boyfriend if I ever saw one. I think London’s condition made the interactions between these two so much more intriguing. I could definitely see these two on my favorite couples list!
All in all, I just really loved Forgotten, and I think you will too! I suggest adding this to your summer read list asap! You definitely won’t regret it!
