Synopsis
Imagine a world where your destiny has 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 artist.

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 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 the hellish prison.

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 figures out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all.

Callie herself.
book review

Have you ever experience any book hangover? Because I did. I know I just finish the book last night and I still couldn't put it off from my mind and that being said, I could not move to another book. Yet. As I told you in one of my posts last month, I wanted to read a fantasy, sci-fi books, right? Here I am reading such an amazing book. I love the book very much.

Forget Tomorrow is set in a futuristic world in which all human are going to receive a future memory on their seventeenth birthday. It's a new technology set in Boom era.  The memory they receive is a snippet of what is going to happen in the future, what are they going to be - a successful artist? a chef? But the worst thing, the future memory tells them - you're a criminal and that leads them to go to prison right away even though, they have not yet committed the crime.

Unfortunately, Callie receives a snippet from her memory commit a crime to her sister. After what she saw in her future memory she ran out to the forest with her crush, Logan but somehow she surrenders herself and goes to the prison. Not long after she been to prison, Logan comes to the rescue and bail her out from the jail, bring her again to the forest where there is a small community live somewhere in the forest hiding from the government. It is called as a Harmony.  A community filled with people who have the same fate as Callie.

My emotion when reading the book is unstable as I was scared of what will happen to Callie - is she going to commit the crime as she seen from her future memory? Seeing her struggle to live her day after what had she saw is hard. Because we are talking about 17 years old girl who is so young!!! Even though I like Callie's character but somehow I find her a but somehow I find her a bit annoying because there is a teeny tiny bit of she being so stubborn and quite annoying but I guess.... that's forgiven.

All in all, it is a wonderful book set in the futuristic world makes me yearn for more. I need to what is going to happen to her sister? What is happening to Callie? As the ending of the book leave you hanging. I guess I'm going to find out all that in the next series. If only, the book exists in our local bookstore that would be amazing. Sadly, no.

I'm glad that Entangled Teen gave me the chance to read and review such an amazing book and I'm so happy my friend, Rafael also gives me the book as a gift. Thank you!
