Part of the Forgotten series
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 a dark, against-the-odds romance like no other.

Review by Jen7waters
When I first read the premise of this book I thought it sounded interesting, but the reality was quite the opposite, for this was a very boring and nonsensical read. The heroine, London, can't remember the past, meaning: she wakes up every day, goes to school, does all kinds of normal teenager stuff, and then at 4:33 a.m. of each day her mind goes blank. Only her mother and her best friend Jamie know about this, and they help, but London writes notes at the end of each day as a reminder of things she really needs to know for the next one (like, what to wear…), and she reads these every morning before classes - this is where the book stops making much sense, how could people at school not notice it? She doesn’t have friends besides Jamie, but how come her teachers don't notice it? Even if she reads the notes every morning, how could she possibly cover every subject she learned at every class? I'm sorry, but it doesn’t make any sense… There are a few other subjects going on in this story, but it’s all so boring I can’t make myself get into details. I'm giving it a 2 star rating because the last book I gave a 1 star to was far worse than <b>Forgotten</b>, but really, I can't recommend it. :/
