Imagine one day you wake up and you cannot remember the past, yet you can remember the future, and the future of others around you. This is the plot line for Cat Patrick’s book called Forgotten. I began reading this two days ago and could not put it down, it is fast paced and full of intrigue.

There are a lot of books that deal with memory loss, and it seems like they are all the same, yet this time it seemed different. Forgetting the past is common in fiction today, yet remembering the future is something completely new to me. I thought that this aspect of the story was written very cleanly, that is to say that it didn’t seem “out there” or out of the ordinary. It was almost like common knowledge throughout the book, something that shouldn’t be frowned upon.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this book, it was a fast and easy read, but it held so much emotion and so much personal growth that you cannot help but fall in love with the main character. She is fragile, yet strong; something that is rarely seem these days in YA fiction. The love story is strong, yet not overpowering. It does not overshadow the real issues that need to be dealt with throughout the book. There is also an element of suspense within the book, and like I said before, it is written very well. I very much recommend this book if you are looking for a fast, exciting read. Cat Patrick should be one to watch in the future.
