4.5 stars

Forgotten explores an almost backwards memory situation with London Lane remembering the future, but never the past. The only people she recognizes are those who are in her future, those she'll see tomorrow or the day after that, or who she'll encounter years down the road. This can be slightly confusing at first, but gets easier to understand as the plot progresses. As great as it may sound to remember the future, it's not. London is faced with knowing how relationships turn out, how each person she comes across will impact her life, and how the gorgeous Luke Henry - a new student who is kind and friendly to London - is not someone she remembers from her future.

London is easy-going, despite her recall issues, but can also be a little self-absorbed. Her voice is strong, somewhat sarcastic at times, and good-natured, but she acts a bit snooty towards her mother and can come off as a little abrasive. She can't remember the past, so it's understandable that she'd have some day to day anger. She has to prep for school each day by reading notes she wrote the day before. The only people who know about her problem are her mom and best friend Jamie. It's a tough situation, only made more complicated by her recurring nightmare of a funeral that reveals more and more each time she has it. The nightmare pops up the same time that Luke Henry shows, adding to the mystery of what's really going on.

One of the things I loved about Forgotten was that London's mother was there, she was active, and she was a participant (despite London not really wanting her to be, at times) in London's life. Jamie, London's best friend, was also a great aspect, at least in the beginning. After London's and Jamie's falling out, Jamie becomes very unlikable, but it's a testament to London's character that she refuses to give up. Watching London forge on, without her best friend but with the knowledge of how things pan out, is surprising and very inspiring. It demonstrates how powerful friendship and loyalty are to her. It shows that London is a caring person who values everything and everyone in her life.

Forgotten is a quick, unputdownable read. The premise is gripping and though-provoking, with glimpses into morality and right and wrong. London's entire existence is based upon what information she allows herself to know, meaning: London's world is unreliable. She can lie to herself and change her perception of her life and her relationships. And she does just that. It makes for an interesting and captivating read. Add a sweet and then sizzling romance, along with a memory mystery, and you've got yourself a fantastically intriguing and unforgettable (pun totally intended) read.
