FORGOTTEN by Cat Patrick

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.

The concept of FORGOTTEN intrigued me from the moment I grabbed a copy from the bookstore and read the blurb. I bought it straight away, knew it was something I'd be interested in reading because I'm a sucker for amnesia stories. But this book is so much more than that!

London Lane can't remember her past, but she can remember her future. Every night, her mind gets wiped clean and she has to take notes to remind herself of what happened during the day. She then reads it back the next morning, so she can keep up with things. Though that doesn't always work out, either.

The day she meets Luke, everything changes. Luke is nice looking, sweet, and very interested in her. There's a problem though, because she can't remember him forwards. So, who is this guy and how does he fit into her life when she can't remember him? Not to mention, how does the creepy memory about a funeral fit into everything?

This is an amazing book! It hooked me in from the very beginning and kept me glued until the very end. London might forget what happened the day before, but she's an awesome narrator and I loved her story. There are some wonderful scenes in this book, some very powerful ones that are heartbreaking, too. And what happens as she starts to delve deeper into her past, leads her to some very unexpected turns.

I absolutely adored this book!
