Sixteen-year-old Sera is the only survivor of an explosion on a plane. She wakes up in hospital to find that she has no memory. The only clue to her identity is a mysterious boy who claims she was part of a top-secret science experiment. The only adult she trusts insists that she shouldn’t believe anything that anybody tells her. In a tense and pacy novel exploding with intrigue and action, Sera must work out who she is and where she came from. Eventually she will learn that the only thing worse than forgetting her past is remembering it.
When Sera wakes up in hospital, she realises she has absolutely no memory, and no way to answer the question on everyone’s lips: how did she survive the plane crash when no one else did?
Suddenly she is front page news. Everyone wants to know who she is. Including Sera. She doesn’t know who to trust and knows that people around her are lying. A strange boy keeps appearing, insisting she isn’t safe.
Trusting him is like taking a leap of faith and while she cannot deny the pull she has to him, or the familiarity of his words, Sera will come to realise that forgetting is sometimes better than remembering.
Sera and Zen are two unforgettable characters. I felt almost maternal towards Sera as she struggled to make her way through a world with no memories to aide her.
Unremembered was a fantastic adventure read with corrupt societies and evil corporations and true love. It will appeal to a broad audience, fans of The Hunger Games and The Bourne Identity will love it. Every page had me guessing and I didn’t anything coming. This is sure to be a brilliant new book series.
