Unremembered by Jessica Brody

There are a few times when I have to sit back from a book and make 'what' sound almost like a quack. WAT.

This book definitely had me saying WAT WAT WAT every few chapters.

An amazon summary, "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 compelling and suspenseful new sci-fi series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten." AMAZON LINK OF WAT

This book is so full of suspense and moments that don't quite make sense until you reach the end. Then all the little moments that happened earlier in the book suddenly make more sense for the right reasons and it's like WHOA.

Before I go any further, this book is definitely a science fiction book. Somehow I managed to read a good portion of the book assuming it was just a different kind of amnesia case, but looking back on it I totally had the dumb.

All the dumb.

Moving on.

I'm not going to delve into much of a summary on this one because the amazon summary actually did a wonderful job (I am delightfully surprised!).

The book was well paced, the voice was consistent, and the new concepts were introduced slowly enough that it was easy to melt them into the main story line without a lot of questions.

I did enjoy the main character, Violet, a lot because her voice was very different than what I'm used to when encountering YA books.

As far as the science fiction elements go, it was pretty comprehensible.

Basically, a lot of the book involved connecting the different points for me and it was fun to string it all together as the book wrapped up.

I enjoyed this, and with most things that I simply enjoy, I run out of things to say.

Happy reading!
