Synopsis via Goodreads
Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if's in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies.

Noteworthy Passages

London; pg. 30
I remember forward.
I remember forward and forget backward.
My memories, bad, boring, or good, haven't happened yet.
So, like it or not--and like it I don't--I will remember standing in fresh-cut grass with the black-clad figures surrounded by stone until I do it for real. I will remember the funeral until it happens--until someone dies.
And after that, it will be forgotten.

London & Luke; pg. 198-199
"Hmm, just a sec," Luke says, reaching his outside arm toward the nightstand and retrieving my cell phone. He frees his other arm from under me, quickly types a message, and hits send. Immediately my phone buzzes to alert me that I have a new text.
"What does it say?" I ask after Luke sets the phone next to the bed.
"The boy in the closet is your boyfriend. He loves you and will tell you all about last night."


Hope you all enjoyed those two passages. This was a really great read and I thought both these passages would do a good job of getting you wanting to read it if you didn't already. For more on my thoughts you can check out my review.

As always, comments appreciated and thanks for stopping by.
