Review: Forgotten

Cat Patrick
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Release Date: June 7, 2011

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.

I really loved this book. It's been a while since I've read a really good book, and this is one of them. 

This has such an interesting premise. It's one that you will never come across again. 

I loved London. Despite everything, she wasn't too whiny. She was strong and I admired her.

I didn't think that this book would be very romantic. I was wrong. I loved Luke and Luke and London's relationship. It was very sweet and not too clingy or needy. 

There is one reason and one reason only that this doesn't make my favorites. It was anti-climatic. There were some surprises, but I was expecting a big BAM! that would knock the breathe out of me. But it never happened, at least not for me. 

Also, I could have used a hundred more pages of this book. But I loved what was there. 

Cat Patrick's debut is a unique novel that took my breathe away.

  1. I've seen "Forgotten" and have wanted to grab it but unfortunately I don't have the nice book cover that you have shown in your review, we've got a different one in Australia. I know it sounds lame but that's what has stopped me from buying the book, but I might just dive in and just buy it, thanks for the amazing review!
