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.
Starting from the very first page of Forgotten I was hooked! It was such a fantastic read! It was fun and quick and had great characters and plot twists. The writing was also fantastic and I was able to read it in one sitting.
Every night before London goes to bed, she writes down everything that was important that happened during the day. She also writes herself reminders. She does this because if she doesn’t write these things down, she will have no recollection that it happened. Nobody knows why her memory is messed up like this, but she deals with it in the best way that she can. What made this even more interesting is that she can only remember things from her past, if they tie into her future! Crazy, right??
I loved London. She was so strong! I don’t think I would ever be able to handle something like this. Even with her condition, she was still such a normal and believable teenage girl. Her boyfriend, Luck was also great. He was so sweet and everyday he had to make London fall in love with him all over again and it was adorable watching that play out! London and Luke had great chemistry and I think there relationship was also very believable.
The story was really unpredictable. There is nothing worse then reading a book that is totally predictable that you don’t even have to finish reading it because you know exactly what will happen! I so did not see that plot twist toward the end. I’ve read a few reviews on Forgotten and they mentioned a big twist. Even knowing that something was going to happen, I still had no clue what it was going to be!
Forgotten comes highly recommended. I don’t think you will be disappointed!! My only regret is that it took me so long to finally read it.
