The sequel to the sci-fi hit Forget Tomorrow is a twisting, turning roller-coaster ride—the perfect sci-fi futuristic read.

Seventeen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries -- if only she'd let TechRA study her. But after they kidnapped and experimented on her as a child, cooperating with the scientists is the last thing Jessa would do. 

But when she discovers the past isn't what she assumed, Jessa must join forces with budding scientist Tanner Callahan to rectify a fatal mistake made ten years ago. She'll do anything to change her past -- even if it means aligning herself with the enemy she swore to defeat.




I was so excited when a copy of this book showed up in my mailbox. I had reviewed the first book in this series for Entangled Teen and hadn't expected them to send me the second book as well. After the ending of the first book, I was definitely excited to see what would happen next and read from Jessa's point of view now that she was all grown up. 

After her sister sacrificed herself for the future of all humanity, Jessa can feel her legacy in every relationship she has. Everyone loved her sister and she did all she could to make sure that Jessa could live and future memory could not. Little did they know, TechRA was still working to invent future memory and create an evil future. Tanner Callahan has been raised by scientists and is one of the most promising scientists of the generation. When Jessa discovers a secret that goes against everything she's been told, she has to team up with Tanner to help their future. 

Since we only knew Jessa as a toddler in the first book in this series, it was very interesting getting to meet her in this book. It was sad how Jessa felt like she would never live up to her sister who had sacrificed so much for her. Jessa's characters was so strong and spunky, though, and I really enjoyed how much she tried to make things right. And you know I love a good romance, so I enjoyed how close she grew to Tanner. Tanner was one of the last people she should think of getting involved with, so they definitely tried to push each other away, but it was cute how they spent more time together and started to find it harder to ignore their feelings. 

While the characters did sound a bit juvenile at times, I kind of felt like it was just a part of who Jessa was since she was babied a lot while she grew up. There is definitely a lot of this sci-fi world that Jessa has to navigate and deal with, and I felt like there was definitely a shift in the society they lived in. I liked how some details from the first book came full circle in this one and you got to learn more about the characters and their pasts. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this second addition to the Forget Tomorrow series. I was a bit over the cliff-hanger endings and wasn't all that excited for another one, but I still want to continue on in this series to figure out what happens next. I enjoyed Jessa as a narrator just as much as I enjoyed Callie in the first book and it was fun seeing this world evolve and become even more complicated. For a unique sci-fi with strong characters, you should check out Forget Tomorrow.
