I’m not very good at Twittering. It’s too fast for me. But I’m doing my best, because growth and all. And I’ve discovered a few very beneficial things on there that I wouldn’t have if I had just kept my head in Facebookland. One of those things is author Pintip Dunn.
I don’t remember the whole story, but basically I heard about a giveaway of a bunch of YA books on Twitter. Something about summer reads. I love YA, so I entered. And I won a book called Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn. Ms. Dunn herself contacted me to tell me I had won, so that was cool. Giveaways are fun, eh?
I had zero expectations for this book. I didn’t even look it up to see what it was about. And what a delicious surprise it turned out to be.
Forget Tomorrow is a dystopian story (yay!) set after the Technological Boom. All teenagers go to the Future Memory Agency on their 17th birthday and receive a memory that their future self sends back that tells them exactly what their life will be like in the future. Then the person can spend their time and resources pursing that goal, rather than wasting time figuring out what they are supposed to do with their life. Callie Stone is as excited as anyone to receive her memory, only things are not what she would imagined it would be. Her memory very clearly depicts her murdering her sister for some unknown reason. Based on just this memory, she is arrested and placed in prison for a crime she hasn’t yet committed. She is helped by her long-time crush Logan, a boy who quit speaking to her five years ago. Callie and Logan have to unravel the mystery of this crime that seems inconceivable to Callie, and figure out a way to prevent this future from happening.
I loved this book, but I had so many questions at the end. Thankfully at the end I found out that there is a sequel. I haven’t read that one yet, but I will as soon as is humanly possible. The premise is captivating, the characters are likeable and relatable, and the writing is effortless. I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to more from Pintip Dunn.
