Unremembered by Jessica Brody Review 9/4/14


Unremembered by Jessica Brody
March 5, 2013
Farrar, Straus, & Giroux
Hardcover, 320 pgs.

What it’s about:

The only survivor of a horrific plane crash is a sixteen-year old girl with no memories. The fact that she is unharmed is nothing short of a miracle. She captures the attention of the media as authorities attempt to identify this girl with no memories. In the mean time, Jane Doe, or “Violet” is confronted by a world that is utterly foreign. As she tries to piece together her past, she must decide whether or not to trust the boy who claims to know and love her.

Why you might like it:

Do you like stories with a twist at the end? The truth about Violet’s past was a delightful surprise that I did not see coming! Do you enjoy a little mystery/thriller? Violet’s secrets are slowly revealed and the action builds to an exciting end. Do you like when a book makes you think? Unremembered touches on issues such as what it means to be human. If you are looking for a quick read that is not heavily bogged down by complex science, you might enjoy this book. A cliffhanger ending will have you reaching for the sequel.

Want more like this?

For more books that address what it is to be human try The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary Pearson, Eve and Adam by Michael Grant, and The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. For more science fiction books that are kind light on the science, try The Originals by Cat Patrick or Mothership by Martin Leicht. For more books about memory, try Forgotten by Cat Patrick, White Cat by Holly Black, or We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.
