I remember forwards. I remember forwards, and forget backwards. My memories, bad, boring, or good, haven't happened yet. So I will remember standing in the fresh-cut grass with the black-clad figures surrounded by stone until I do it for real. I will remember the funeral until it happens - until someone dies. And after that, it will be forgotten. Here's the thing about me: I can see my future, but my past is blank. I see the future in flashes, like memories. I remember what I'll wear tomorrow, and a car crash that won't happen till this afternoon. But yesterday has evaporated from my mind - just like the boy I love. I can't see him in my future. I can't remember him from my past. But today, I love him. And I never want to forget how much.

I absolutely loved reading this book. One of my favourite things about it was how London and Luke’s characters fit so well together… I loved seeing the relationship between them sizzle! All the characters were interesting, especially London with her unique life, and I loved watching her cope with her backwards memory. Right from the very start, Forgotten was beautifully written and it entangled me into London’s strange life. This book is written from London’s point of view and before reading it, I was a bit unsure of how Cat would write this, although I was amazed at how cleverly this was done. There’s an element of mystery to this book. I was constantly wondering about what would happen and I was pleasantly surprised with the twists in the plot. I couldn’t take my eyes off the pages because of how attention grabbing it was. This book really kept me thinking, and I guess that’s what made it such an intriguing read. Loved it!

Amazing book. Had me hooked ever since I read the title. I have now read it three times and I can't help but to wonder what will happen to London in the future. I hope theres a sequel.

For as long as forvever London's had a memory problem. She can recall memories from her future but not her past. At 4:33 each morning she forgets the things from yesterday and can only remember things written in her notes. Just like the boy she loves. He's not in her future and is gone from her past. She has to learn to love him again every single day. And with his arrival her problems get worse. With strange and scary memories, her best friend in trouble and her ongoing fight for the boy of her dreams her life begins to unravel and all the secrets fall apart.

This book is AMAZING! The plot is unreal and the way it's told will keep you tense and teary eyed through to the end. You absolutely can't put it down. With romance, lies, heart wrenching sadness and the usual teenage problems times ten this book has something for everyone! I'd reccomend it to anyone - no matter what your age or interests. Please read it!!!!!!!

ver since London can remember (which she can’t) she’s had a memory problem. She can remember the future, but can’t remember anything that happened in the past. She has to keep notes so she can find out what happened yesterday, without them she is completely clueless and won’t know who anyone is, except for her mum, and her friend Jamie who have implanted themselves in her thoughts. But she has a vision of a funeral, and she can’t make out whose it is, especially since she keeps forgetting..

This book is very enjoyable and something happens each time you turn the page. The idea behind it is really interesting, and I would recommend this book.
