Each night at precisely 4:33 am, while sixteen-year-old London Lane is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can "remember" are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture. Luke Henry is not someone you'd easily forget, yet try as she might, London can't find him in her memories of things to come.


When London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flash-forwards, as the case may be, she realizes it's time to learn about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

“For me, reading is remembering.”- London Lane

Forgotten was one book that has been on my 'To Read' list since it's hard cover release 2011. When I received the Paperback copy for review, I couldn't wait to dive into it!

What an intense, yet simply written story Cat Patrick created. It's so hard to come across a "memory loss" novel that isn't confusing. I have read a fair share that require a lot of flipping back and forth to understand what's going on. That was not the case with Forgotten. The author tackled the premise of Memory Loss so perfectly. Not one moment was I left confused or back-tracking.

The characters were constructed with typical teenager traits yet they were so bold. I absolutely adored London and Luke!

The novel also offers up a full serving of suspense and mystery! Just when you think you know, you are hit with a twist or turn. It was a thrilling reading experience!

I loved every minute of Forgotten! It was exactly what I was expecting but so much more. Cat Patrick packed a lot of punch in the story line but didn't forget the development of the characters. It was a perfect balance!

  1. I have wanted to read this novel for so long, but honestly there haven't been that many reviews for it.
    I was a little worried that it would be one of those with a way too complicated plot line that's unbelievable.
    I'm so long u loved it!
    Now I have no excuses to grab a copy!
    Thanks for the great review.
