My favorite quote:
“Forgetting who you are is so much more complicated than simply forgetting your name. It's also forgetting your dreams. Your aspirations. What makes you happy. What you pray you'll never have to live without. It's meeting yourself for the first time, and not being sure of your first impression.”
Brief Synopsis from Goodreads:
When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.
Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.
Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.
Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?
From popular young adult author Jessica Brody comes a compelling and suspenseful new sci-fi series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.
Unremembered is about a girl who miraculously survives a plane crash. However, all her memories are wiped and she can remember nothing about her past. Everyone is flabbergasted by the fact that she survived, because she is the only survivor. The other thing that adds to the mystery is there is no record of her boarding the plane.
And no one in the world seems to know her.
“…[voids] can be as short as the blink of an eye, or they can be infinite. Consuming your entire existence in a flash of meaningless white. Leaving you with nothing. No memories. No names. No faces.”
Except for a boy who calls himself Zander. He claims that he knows this girl, and tells her that her name is Sera. He tells her she is different, and that they are in love and she needs to trust him. In fact, he insists that she never boarded the plane in the first place.
She knows this sounds crazy.
She knows she shouldn't believe him.
But there are some things she can't explain. How she can do a math problem no human being has ever solved in less than a minute. Why she knocks off her foster parent's car door with no effort.
She is different.
And she knows nothing about herself, or her past.
But maybe her past is better being unremembered.
“Trust your heart. It's the only thing that will never lie to you.”
A strange romantic mystery with twists and turns that will keep you perplexed, Unremembered is definitely a book that you need to read next.
I LOVED THIS BOOK! Seriously. It was amazing. The ending was so unexpected, I never in a million years could have guessed it. You might be super confused at first, but I promise you will understand everything and it will make perfect sense. Also, the romance is kind of nice.*Giggles.*
Of course, it is possible I had too much sugar this morning.......
If this review makes absolutely no sense to you, I apologize. Maybe you should just take my word for it and read the book.
Review: 4.5 stars
