Synopsis: 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.
Review: Forgotten is a fresh twist on the amnesia tale done previously in movies such as 50 First Dates and Memento. Instead of only forgetting the past, London also remembers the future. When she meets Luke Henry, she starts 'remembering' some very disturbing events. Now she needs to learn more about her past before she loses her future, too.
Ms. Patrick has written a mind-bending, exhilarating, and unique novel that I just couldn't put down. I highly, highly recommend Forgotten to tween, teen, and adult readers! Ms. Patrick is an author to follow!!
