Blog Tour and Review: Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn

I'm very excited to be taking part in the blog tour for Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn.  Check out the awesome book details below!!

Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn
Release Date: November 3, 2015
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Genre: Young Adult Dystopian

Imagine a world where your destiny has already 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 scientist. 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 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.

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 figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself.

I've been on a huge, reading winning streak lately, and this latest book in my list kept the good luck going strong.  I love a good dystopian that's unique, and this one definitely offered something different from the run of the mill stories I've read.  When you turn 17, you receive your future memory, a memory that tells you where your life is going, or reveals a penultimate event that sums up your future. In Callie's case, the very worst thing possible is revealed. She kills her baby sister.  From that moment on, she's trying to figure out what could cause her to perform such an act on someone she loves so much.

I loved Callie as a character immediately.  She's determined to change her future, to not reveal it to those trying to torture it out of her.  What she goes through, and what she's willing to endure to prevent that memory from coming to pass was admirable and sad.  Then there's Logan...a guy she's had a crush on for years but hasn't spoken to until now.  He helps her escape, takes her to a place where it's possible to start a new life.  But is it really a life when your very existence is to keep yourself so hidden and controlled that you don't really live.

What transpires from there is a mystery that must be solved, a journey that must be undertaken to determine how and if things can be changed.  It was suspenseful and exciting.

The author did an amazing job introducing the characters and creating complex ones that pulled at your sympathy.  The science was interesting and very well woven.  The story was suspenseful, exciting and unique, and the writing was fast-paced and kept me completely sucked in until the end. And what an ending.  This made me want to read book two immediately.  This was another winner that I loved!
