I had the distinct honor of reading first time Author Pintip Dunn’s new book, Forget Tomorrow. This past Tuesday, November 3rd, the book hit stores nationwide and has already gathered quite a following. Personally speaking I blazed through the pages in a matter of days and could probably be considered one of Mrs. Dunn’s new groupies. The story-line was fast paced, mysterious, and grabs you from the very start. Simply put: I loved it! With that being said let’s push aside all of the blushing school boy banter and dig into the book.
SPOILER ALERT BEWARE!
This Dystopian story is set in a futuristic world where every boy and girl at the age of 17 gets their future. Said future could be that you are destined for fame as an actress, athlete, a world renowned chef, or perhaps, as in the main characters point of view, a criminal. In Callie’s vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Horrified by this revelation she sacrifices everything to ensure her sister safety. Taking dangerous risks, tempting fate, and willing to change her future, Callie will stop at nothing.
What young reader would not find this fascinating and at the same time just a little bit scary? Heck, a glimpse of your future at any age would probably be pretty startling.
Anyhow, I digress. Before Callie can process what the memory means, she 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.
(Wait a second. Have I neglected to mention that people in the future have elevated abilities such as telekinesis and possibly teleportation?)
Fleeing from a government that is researching and collecting individuals with these abilities, the young duo ends up in a community that protects the weak and hunted. Here Callie learns about the plights and stories of other victims and other facts drive her to formulate a plan to save her sister.
Without revealing too much of the story I leave you with this: If I could say anything to convince you to read this book it would be the shocker of an ending. I thoroughly enjoyed the refreshing conclusion and applaud the authors direction. If you are looking for cliffhangers then check out Forget Tomorrow. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Stay tuned readers, the next book in this series is called Remember Yesterday. The release date is scheduled for October 4, 2016 by Entangled Teen.
