I absolutely loved this book. The concept is awesome and the writing is enjoyable. There are more than a few books out there about people having amnesia and I have read and reviewed a few here, but this one was so fresh and unique.

London's mind resets every morning. This means she doesn't remember anything from the previous day! She must write it all down in her personal journal if she wants to remember.

CAN YOU IMAGINE? Your husband ticks you off and you write him out of your journal? You have a really bad day and you can forget it. You do something really horrible and you forget. Course, then again, can't remember the wonderful moments either.

One of my favorite moments is when she meets a new person at school and doesn't think it's important enough to write it in her journal - next day she has no clue who this person is. LMAO!

Everyone should read this!!

She has a new book coming out this year in June 2012 and I am really looking forward to reading more of Cat Patrick's writing.
Revived - As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.

A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of something much larger — and more sinister — than she ever imagined.

Summary -
Each night at precisely 4:33 am, while sixteen-year-old London Lane is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can "remember" are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture. Luke Henry is not someone you'd easily forget, yet try as she might, London can't find him in her memories of things to come.

When London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flash-forwards, as the case may be, she realizes it's time to learn about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

I have been meaning to read Forgotten. Your recommendation that everyone should read it makes me want to do it now. I have seen the new book around and will have to plan on reading that one as well. Great review.
