Each night at precisely 4:33 am, while sixteen-year-old London Lane is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can "remember" are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture. Luke Henry is not someone you'd easily forget, yet try as she might, London can't find him in her memories of things to come.
When London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flash-forwards, as the case may be, she realizes it's time to learn about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.
What the critics are saying:
From the first to the last page this was a stellar read. I rushed home from work to finish reading it immediately, after daydreaming over the book all day. Even now, after a couple of days have gone by, I'm still thinking about the story and the characters. I'm jealous of people who will get to read this for the very first time and discover just how fantastic the experience of losing themselves in it is. (A Dream of Books)
It’s a rare book which I know I could read over and over again and never tire of and one I’m slightly sorry to have already read as I’ll never get that first time again. A five star book and a new author to watch out for very carefully in the future. (Heaven, Hell & Purgatory Book Reviews)
I loved the concept of the book; it’s such an original take on the idea of knowing the future, and the difficulties it causes for London’s life are well thought out and come together to make an incredible story. Even more than that, the way it ties to London’s forgotten past are so shocking and (for want of a better word) emotional that they nearly had me crying on the train. (Tea Mouse Book Reviews)
Forgotten is a charming book with a distinctive concept. It manages to contain potentially unwieldy events and ideas, fashioning them into an intriguing narrative that ends in a way which, while not as good as it could have been, is both clever and complete enough to be satisfying. (LiteraryMinded)
