Unremembered by Jessica Brody is Munch-Worthy

Unremembered (Unremembered, #1)

The only thing worse than forgetting her past... is remembering it.

When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?

From popular young adult author, Jessica Brody comes a mesmerizing and suspenseful new series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

I am a pretty big fan of Jessica Brody and found her three earlier YA novels charming, hilarious, and utterly delightful. She normally writes contemporary, so I was pretty excited to find out that she was going in a more speculative direction. With confused memories and identities, Unremembered sounds like it's going to be a fantastic read.

Given the premise for this story, I think the cover design is both gorgeous and apt. I love how the girl's face is out of focus and how the title is sharply cut into blurred image. It's quite eye-catching!

Releases March 5, 2013 from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group.
