Summary: The only thing worse than forgetting her past . . . is remembering it.
When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-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 comes 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.
Review: 4 stars
This was a pretty cool read. For some reason I didn’t think that I was going to enjoy it, probably because I bought a copy years ago and never read it, but it turned out to be a lot better than I thought it would be. It’s hard to write a review because this is one book where you really want to avoid spoilers. Much of the reason it kept me reading is because I was curious about what was going to happen next, so I’m going to try and keep this spoiler free.
The plot and pacing kept me interested, because for so much of the book I was curious about who she was, since she didn’t remember. I was worried that since she had amnesia that she would fall flat personality wise, but I think that somethings just remain a part of you even if you don’t have your memories. She was a cool character and this story was so fun to read and I’m glad that it didn’t get spoiled on me.
The writing was good, but the plot was really the coolest part. I think I would read the rest of the series, but I’m not exactly dying to know the rest of it. The ending wasn’t a cliffhanger, but it’s clear to me that the story continues. This isn’t a book that I would reread, but the first time around is really cool.
