Excerpt
Audio excerpt


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.

London Lane is a 16 year old girl that every night at 4:33 am, her memory is erased or reset and cannot remember anything from the past. She depends on notes that she writes every night. She cannot remember the past but can remember the future. Her secret is only known by her mom and her best friend Jamie, both help her during the day, London has a sort of normal life, she goes to school, attend parties.
Luke is the super-hot new guy in school who is interested in London, but as London cannot see him in her future, she meets him for the first time every day, which can be problematic.
London suddenly begins to have memories of a funeral in which she can only recognize her mom, so she decides to find out more about her condition, her past and to see if there is any way to change her future.
The book is written from London the point of view, which is weird because she does not remember the day before at all and we do. I was confused in the beginning of the book (first 50-60 pages) because I knew that her memory is erased every day (like the movies 50 First Dates and memento), but I did not knew that her memories were from the future which was confusing at first. For example, she knows her mom and Jaime, not from the past but because they are in her future (¿?) yeah, strange. My favorite character is Luke he´s super understanding, thoughtful, has good feelings, in short the perfect guy, just what London needs, but how can she date a guy that she can´t remember and without him knowing her secret. Yes, a complicated relationship.
I really enjoy Forgotten.
Thanks to Latin Tour Books for the book tour.

    Forgotten reminds me a little of Memento! (Have you seen that movie?) But on the whole, the concept sounds original and intriguing. And you couldn't have picked a more tantalising quote to get me wanting to read it as soon as possible! =P
