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.
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 mesmerizing and suspenseful new series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.
Have you ever read a blurb and right away you knew you had to read the book? Well with the blurb alone, Ms. Brody had me sold to the story. In Unremembered you get so much. You get a character that "survived" a plane crash and now no one knows her. She's Unremembered. No one is coming forward to find her. All but one boy. All main characters in this book was very likable. I enjoyed each one's page time. The author wrote this story so well, that even with it's twists and turns you won't get totally lost. This book was just sooo good.
So no one knows who "Violet" is. It's like she appeared out of thin air. Which leaves everyone puzzled. But that doesn't stop Violet from trying to figure out who she is. That's when she goes on the hunt to discover herself. And this is where the book becomes more interesting. Lucky for her she now has a foster brother who is willing to help her. Unlucky for him, because he gets in trouble for it. But together they go on the hunt for who is the real Violet. And when Zen (boy who knows her true identity) comes into the picture, awesomeness explodes on the page.
As the story progresses and new characters come into play. I ended up being really surprised when I discovered that this is a Sci-fi book. I totally missed it somehow. I am usually really picky when it comes to the Sci-fi genre. However it's a lite Sci-fi. Not too much. But this book was so good that I could not get enough of it. The big twist took me a minute to understand but I think that's because of my lack of Sci-fi book experience. However, once I understood which only took about three minutes, I understood everything. And the twist left me in awe. I was WOW-ed! This book was completely unpredictable. I couldn't guess not one thing. Which makes it even better. The ending was perfect and I can't wait for the next installment. I totally recommend this book to everyone. I give Unremembered 5 huge stars! And it's a definite Good Choice for Reading.
