"Forgotten is a mind-bending experience that I devoured in one sitting. Cat Patrick's exciting and impressive debut still haunts me."--Jay Asher, New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why
"Cat Patrick's debut won't be forgotten by readers. It's a page-turning mystery and a heartrending story of love, loss and...memories of the future. Don't miss this one."----Gail Giles, award-winning author of "Dark Song" and "What Happened to Cass McBride?"
"A captivating psychological drama, a toe-tingling romance and a completely original premise, "Forgotten" is full of twists and turns you won't see coming."----Daisy Whitney, author of "The Mockingbirds", a 2011 ALA Best Fiction for Young Adults book
About the Author
On a rainy November morning, new-baby sleep deprived, Cat Patrick forgot what she was doing. She retraced her steps but instead of remembering, the idea for Forgotten was born. Cat lives near Seattle with her husband and two young children who now, thankfully, sleep through the night. Forgotten is her debut novel.

I will buy Cat Patrick's next novel without hesiatation.
London’s story is a sad one – she can only remember what happens in her future, so each morning she wakes up utterly confused. One thing that’s particularly troublesome for London is the idea that those she loves and cares about will be forgotten once they die, as she will have no memories of them in her future, which is a really horrible thought.
London has to leave notes for herself every night, and write down what she wore the day before so as not to repeat her outfits. And that’s only the start of the trouble her memory loss brings. I found Forgotten completely captivating, although the love story was a bit overpowering despite lots of other interesting storylines intertwined with it. There are some twists and turns that you’ll find yourself surprised by, but they could have been more shocking if some of the attention had been on their build-up rather than London’s feelings for Luke.
That said, I did really like Luke and found their relationship endearing, even if it is a little bit hard to believe that she would fall in love with him every day based on her notes and not much else!
Forgotten is well-worth picking up. It’s a quick read that’ll get you thinking, and is definitely one for fans of Pivot Point, Between The Lives and Every Day. Forgotten was Cat Patrick’s first novel, so I’ll be diving into more of her books soon.
I think this book is popular with YA readers because it addresses so many issues that this age group face. Relationships, trust, betrayal, love, friendships, bullying and just getting through school itself. I liked the relationship between London and her mom who is naturally protective of her fragile daughter. We find out that her mom has kept some truths from her and we can ask ourselves as parents, should we hold back on information? Of course, the answer to that is depending on what that information is and the potential after effects, if any. Luke is a great boyfriend even if a little too good to be true, but he loves London and has loved her for a long time. It's a nice story and an easy read.
London is a great character but she did annoy me quite a bit. Mainly with the notes. If my memory was like hers, I would have written everything down in extreme detail, about five pages long every night, so I didn't mess up or get confused the next day. London just jots down a few bullet points and usually ends up forgetting things. London's boyfriend, Luke, is amazing, he's so patient and takes her out on the most amazing dates. When he first meets her he immediately gives her his jacket, as she's freezing but for some reason London chooses not to remember it's his. I think London was too harsh with him at times and I wish she'd have appreciated him more, as he really loved her.
At times London could be a total bitch, especially when it came to her friend, Jamie, who gets herself into a messy relationship. I could understand why London didn't want her friend dating that person but I think she went about it completely the wrong way.
It was fun following all of the twists and turns of this story.Read more ›
