Summary from Goodreads: 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.
Can you imagine waking up in the morning and forgetting everything about your past? Imagine meeting the hottest guy and not only forgetting his name, but forgetting you ever met him. London goes through this everyday and the only way she gets by is through the notes she writes to herself telling what had previously happened and things to "remember" for the day to come.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It was very original and while it was a contemporary novel, there was still that mysterious aspect of why this is happening to London and where these haunting visions are coming from. I loved the mystery surrounding London's condition and getting to discover what her visions are telling her. The narrator did a wonderful job with the story. She gave London the perfect 'voice' and conveyed all her emotions so the listener really felt like they were talking to London.
I enjoyed London as a character and I'm glad she was so accepting of her condition. Granted this book was set many years after her memory loss started, but I felt like she adjusted to her condition and learned to live with it. I did tend to find her whiny at times but I'm noticing that I'm finding many teenage characters whiny. I think this may be a sign that I'm getting old. *Gasps*
I think Luke is amazing. He is such a great guy, who is spontaneous and completely unique. He is so sweet to London and they do make a great couple. Girls, trust me you are going to swoon with the originality of his date ideas. So darn romantic!
If you are looking for something fun and fresh to read, try Forgotten...it's unforgetable (ok that was a bad pun, but I still can't stop laughing).
