Summary:

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.

Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if’s in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies.

Review:

This book was fun to read, however just not really for me. I enjoyed reading it but wasn’t really pulled in by the characters, the plot sounded really interesting and reading it play out was fun, however the characters lacked something which let me connect with them on the same level as i would have wished.

London forgets everything that has happened every day when she goes to sleep, she writes herself notes in order to remember what has happened so far in her life. She remembers the future instead, she can see memories of what will happen in years to come and can identify people by the part they will play in her future. When she meets the new boy at school, Luke, she can’t see him in her future and tries to just forget about him, however he doesn’t go away and keeps re-appearing every day. This causes a fair amount of confusion in London as the day before she should have been able to ‘remember’ him from tomorrow. It all boils down to what made her forgot the past when she was younger and what this means for the future of herself and her family.

At first i really enjoyed the books, the plot seemed like such an interesting idea and i enjoyed London’s personality, however by halfway through the book, it started to wane on me and towards the end, i was still enjoying the plot, but i wasn’t as invested in London as a character as i wish i’d been. This book is interesting and it does raise a good point about different types of memory loss and can be a fun read for those interested in these areas, this book was recommended to me and i know some people that did thoroughly enjoy it, it just wasn’t for me.
