Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Memory is a tricky thing, but never more so than for high school junior London Lane, who must write notes to herself each night, so that when she wakes up with her memory wiped clean, she can be reminded of past events in her life. And the 'memories' London does have (including a friend's disastrous relationship with a teacher and a mysterious funeral) are of the future. It's an ambitious premise, and first-time novelist Patrick doesn't quite pull it off. The underlying 'rules' of London's condition are murky; she remembers her mother and best friend's identities, as well as her own (presumably drawing from future memories), yet even months into a relationship with gorgeous new student Luke, she doesn't remember him without her notes. More baffling is London and her mother's lack of concern about her condition. 'I wouldn't say that you're broken,' her mother tells her. 'You're special.' (Meanwhile, London is still walking into the wrong classrooms on the last day of school.) London's romance and the story's several mysteries may draw in readers, but the inconsistencies prove frustrating. Ages 12 — up. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

On a rainy November morning, new baby sleep deprived, Cat Patrick forgot what she was doing. She retraced her steps but instead of remembering, the idea for Forgotten was born.

Cat lives near Seattle with her husband and twin daughters who now, thankfully, sleep through the night. Forgotten is her debut novel.

I saw so many great reviews of this book that I wanted to love it. I liked it, but I didn't love it. I think I built it up too much.


I did really like the premise of the book and I enjoyed London's character, her mother kinda bothered me a bit. I liked the relationship London and Luke had, it felt different to me then in other YA novels. It wasn't the same standard story.


Ther book picked up for me in the last 100 pages when we get a little more back story on the Lane family. Questions are raised and not completely solved, we are left with a massive cliff hanger that makes the reader want book 2.


I will be picking up book 2 when it's released, I would recommend this book to others.
