Summary: The only thing worse than forgetting her past... is remembering it.

When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn't know, plagued by abilities she doesn't understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?

From popular young adult author, Jessica Brody comes a mesmerizing and suspenseful new series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

My Thoughts: I might be the only person who didn't love this book. I adore Jessica Brody but I just didn't like this one as much as I hoped. I did finish it and liked it enough to keep reading, but it just wasn't one of my favorites of the year. Maybe I’m the minority here.

We are introduced to Sera aka Violet who is found among the wreckage of a plane crash. She is the only survivor. She wakes up in a hospital and has no clue who she is. Her memory is gone, blank, she doesn't have a single memory at first.

She gets put into foster care with a pretty neat family. I especially liked the brother.  She also meets a boy named Zen from her past. He tries to explain a lot of things to her, but at first she doesn't believe him.

Sera comes from a pretty weird background. Exploring her past with her was a fun thrill ride for me, but I just didn't feel connected to the story or the characters very well. This was maybe too scifi-ish for me.  I’m not sure. I just didn't love the plot and the way things went.

I did like the romance aspect of the book though. Zen was a pretty intriguing guy, and I wanted to know more about him.

Unremembered was just alright for me. Will I read the next in the series? I’m sure I will. I’ll give it another chance and hopefully next time it will be more than 3 cupcakes!

Overall: I can see where some people will love this one! It just wasn't the “right” book for me! Maybe my reading mood, wasn't in the mood for sci-fi, I'm not really sure. Probably more of a 3.5 cupcake rating for me!

Cover: I do like the cover! Its pretty imaginative!
