When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the 16-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, Unremembered is the start of 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.

Invested In the Tale
Jessica Brody knows how to gently pull a reader into the lives of other people. I read books like this precisely because I want to share in the experience of other people. Although I am beginning to sound like a broken record, Julia Whelan is magnificent. I actually found this book by looking for works narrated by her. With Whelan behind the microphone this story comes to life flowing along with just the right amount of suspense and action. This is NOT a typical 'girl loses memory' tale at all. The twists and turns are deliciously sweet and kept me guessing all along. An author who builds lives, builds feeling and emotion, and who evokes empathy in readers automatically moves to the top of my list of authors to search for again next time I am looking for a new series.
The narration, as I said before, is the best. Whelan is fabulous with her timing, tone, inflection, and emotion. I loved that this tale is written from the first person point of view, from Seraphina's perspective. Without giving away too much, I can say that Seraphina's way of thinking and describing the world is completely unique in this story. Imagine that you appeared in a world in which you had lost your memories, did not understand the customs, the social mores, or even what most objects are used for. Now, imagine ways in which this could possibly happen. Brody's dishes out just the right amount of detail at just the right times to keep readers invested and guessing.
I absolutely loved this book! It was so amazing! I can wait to see what appends in the next book 😁👍
