Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided...by your future self.
It's Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she's eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they're meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.
Or in Callie's case, a criminal.
In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a hellish prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes.
But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself. (less)
Forget Tomorrow is definitely on my top Sci-Fi YA list. I really loved this book and the direction it takes Science.
We are living in the future but the it’s not so drastically different that it’s not doable. There are no strange creatures roaming about that they have to stay inside protective walls. A large majority of people are actually living content lives. It’s those who realize the price of future memories and having special abilities that have their eyes open to what is going on. Callie keeps her head down because she doesn’t want to draw attention to herself, which would then draw attention to her sister Jessa. Callie has seen what can happen when she witnessed Logan’s brother being taken away. When Callie receives her unexpected memory it puts into motion a chain of events that makes her realize she is a lot more connected then she realizes.
I love how much Callie follows her own heart. So many books have me frustrated with the main character when they do the, I have to ignore my feelings for you to protect you. Callie, even though she has those thoughts in her head, also knows how to embrace the moment. How to love openly and trust that she can find a way to protect someone by doing that. Which includes her sister. She fights until she is out of options, it doesn’t matter if it seems hopeless to begin with. She exhaust every other option first.
Logan, oh sweet Logan. How can you not love him, I definitely love him. He is so adorable with the admiration of Callie he has. He cares about her and doesn’t really hid it. I love it, I love him. He has some guilt about his brother and tries his best to repent. He also can’t control how he feels though and it’s so great.
One thing I love is the unpredictableness of the ending. It could go at least three ways that I could think of but you don’t really know how it’s going to turn out. Well let me tell you, I can’t talk about it because you need to read. I definitely need the next book now though.
There are so many things to love in this book but it’s one of those that I don’t want to spoil so I’m not going to delve into too many things. If you like Sci-fi, read it. If you like it romance, read it. If you like a good book, read it.
