imgresWhat if everything you remembered was something in the future? And you have no recollection of the past, even what happened the day before? How could you live your life, always knowing what is coming, but never knowing what has happened? Such is London’s life, in the book Forgotten by Cat Patrick. I was so intrigued by this book because it has a premise I haven’t read before. London is a regular teen in that she worries about her friendships and who this cute guy is that she can’t “remember”in her future. So she believes that she must not have a “future” with him. And what do you do when you know your friend is going to make a terrible mistake, because you can see her future as clearly as your friend can see your past? London is caught in an upside down world, one in which only two people, her mom and a friend, know about London’s peculiar memories.  Follow London as she struggles to use the future to help unravel her past.

Recommending for grade 7 and up.
