Product description

Forgotten is a dark, against-the-odds romance like no other. The stunning debut book for young adults from Cat Patrick. Here's the thing about me: I can see the future in flashes, like memories. But my past is a blank. I remember what I'll wear tomorrow, and an argument that won't happen until this afternoon. But I don't know what I ate for dinner last night. I get by with the help of notes, my mom and my best friend Jamie, and the system works ...Until now. Everything's falling apart. Jamie's going of the rails. My mom is lying to me. And I can't see the boy I adore in my future. But today, I love him. And I never want to forget how much ...Forgotten is the story of a girl for whom yesterday is lost, today is an adventure, and tomorrow is a memory. An unforgettable debut read from Cat Patrick, this book for young adults is truly absorbing. 'A fantastic, absorbing debut that will have you reading in every spare second' - Thirst for Fiction, YA blogger.

Author information

On a rainy November morning, new-baby sleep deprived, Cat Patrick forgot what she was doing. She retraced her steps but instead of remembering, the idea for Forgotten was born. Cat lives near Seattle with her husband and two young children who now, thankfully, sleep through the night. Forgotten is her debut novel.

I loved this book and unlike its title, it is not one I am going to forget! A beautiful mytsery/romance featuring a girl who knows her future but forgets her past. Helped by her mum, her best friend, her notes and her gorgeous boyfriend, can she unravel what has happened to her? Check out my full review at www.ourbookclub.net.au

Forgotten was just what I was looking for during my evening of insomnia (one of many such evenings). The story was gripping, the characters were interesting and I was able to read it in one sitting. Don't let the latter fool you; this isn't a simplistic read with little depth. Quite the opposite. Some of the paradoxes of London's bizarre condition will leave your head spinning.

Every morning, at 4.33am, London's memory of the past resets and vanishes. She does have memories, but they are all of her future. This can be heartbreaking and reassuring for her. If she argues with someone, she can "remember" their friendship being fine in the future. She can also see all of the trials and arrows that her friends and loved ones might have to suffer.

Aside from her name, London was a great character. She only had one moment of cowardice which soured her for me a bit, but I got over it as she was so cool. I admired how together she was in the face of both her inner confusions, and external antagonism.

Her best bud, Jamie, did my head in. London tries to do the best by her, but Jamie is too self absorbed to take advice, offered with love, from an infallible source. This irked me.

Luke is... well. In the tradition of the yummy male lead, he is yummy. My only qualm about him might be that he was a bit too perfect! He was caring, sensitive, hot, romantic, and did I mention yummy? His perfection put men of the real world to shame! But hush...don't tell my husband that!

I thoroughly recommend Forgotten! It might have your head whirling and the ending is, perhaps, a tad abrupt, yet the narrative and characters are engaging and enjoyable. Oh, and it's less than a fiver on TBD!

The idea for Forgotten was a really unique one that intrigued me. Ms. Patrick wrote it well, and had me from page 1 and sucked in all the way until the end.
How the main character, London, dealt with memories being reset was really cool, and I like that she could see into the future some to balance it out. If I were in her place, I don't know if I could handle something like that, but she lives a normal enough life.
Luke was a great addition to the story. He was swoon-worthy and it was fun to see their relationship develop even with the unique challenges. How he was a blind spot was interesting, and I didn't know what to make of it. I can't imagine trying to have a relationship when you can't see him in your past or future, and it was cool how Ms. Patrick pulled that off. I found it all to be very believable.
The twists kept me guessing and I couldn't guess what was going to come next. The way that she weaved all together and I could've never put it all together.
