Unremembered is one of those books you just can’t put down. I was already convinced by the synopsis, obsessed as I am about disappearances and lost memories. When I read the first few chapters, the obsession began to grow. The story, intriguing as hell, keeps pushing you on reading, turning page after page, and, before you realize it, you’re at the end of the book. And, when you finally reach the last page…you find yourself swearing and wailing like a two-year old who you confiscated his favorite toy to. Because let me tell you, it’s been a while since I read a book that was good like that.
When a sixteen-year-old girl is found floating among the wreckage of a plane, that crashed in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, she quickly is what everyone talks about. How can a teenager survives a plane crash in which everyone died, and why can’t she remember a thing about herself ? This story starts in the heart of a mystery, and right from the first pages, you find yourself wondering, searching, going out of your mind as you start putting the pieces of the mystery together with this strange character. Why is she alive, why does no one claim her back? Who is the boy who claims to know her, and why is she in danger? There are SO many questions right from the start, and this fast-pacing book will have you seek for all the answers within a few days, even less, if you quickly get addicted -like I do. If you enjoy dystopia, mystery, and books that keep you up at night, reach for Unremembered. Certainly a book you will remember.
Unremembered is the first book in a trilogy, and, I don’t know about you, but I’m dying to get my hands on the second book! And, GUESS WHAT? I just found out that it’s in development as a Major Motion Picture! Brace yourself for what’s coming, I bet you it’s gonna be AWESOME.
Jessica Brody, Unremembered, published by Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, March 5th 2013.
The only thing worse than forgetting her past . . . is remembering it.
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.
