Book Review #31: Forgotten
Author: Cat Patrick.
Publisher: Little Brown.
Published Date: June 7, 2011.
"Every night, 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."
I love everything about this cover! From the title taking over the whole thing, the font having lines through them, to the girl and her shadow in the background. When you take off the sleeve, instead of it being plain, with just Forgotten inscribed, its smooth, with Forgotten again taking up all the space(:
Luke would have to be my favorite person in this story. He seems like such a sweet guy, and very patient! If I were him, I would get a little frustrated being with someone that won't remember what we did the other day, or even remember me at all. *SPOILER ALERT!!* Even though he should have told London, about him knowing her situation, he was just trying his best to keep her from being hurt.
London's best friend Jamie, I don't exactly hate her, but she just irritated me a couple of times throughout this story. How can she be mad at her friend, for wanting to protect her from getting hurt. Why would you get so angry with her, when all she wanted to do was help?
Story Line: 5/5
At first I was a little confused *SPOILER ALERT!!* with the whole forgetting the past, but remembering the future, but that went away after about chapter five.
The book kept me on the edge of my seat even to the last page! I loved the beginning, the middle and the ending. Even though we never truly find out what happens, I was satisfied with what I knew.
If you haven't read this book, I defiantly recommend you pick up a copy! It's a light read, and I was finished within three short days. But this isn't a summer-y book, so I wouldn't recommend taking it to the beach(:
