Forgotten by Cat Patrick
Congratulations to Cat on her debut novel FORGOTTEN. An amazing book to make a splash in the YA genre.
I would first like to say that before I even read the blurb I was drawn by the cover, it helps to explain the main character, London Lane. She has a turmoil life with her past forgotten and the future bright and living. I think that's one of the reasons I had to get a copy-there is no disappointment on this end :)
My sister asked me a question once she had read the blurb, "Won't it bug you that it's written with the past a mystery? It doesn't explain the character's life..." It didn't bug at all, I think the reason for that was because FORGOTTEN was so well written and with each time she saw the world with new eyes there wasn't the repetitive description that could have used. One of the amazing aspects of the novel is that you never know more than London at any given time in the novel. With that said I feel that it is a testament to the writing of Cat Patrick.
I have one question that will help you relate to FORGOTTEN or maybe even get you hooked, can you imagine being in London's shoes-unable to remember yesterday or what transpired 5 years ago? Sometimes we wish that we could forget the terrible and tragic events of our lives but with forgetting those we loose the memories of all the joyous ones. That is what FORGOTTEN boils down too.
I will admit that there have been times in my life were I've wished that I could forget losing a loved one or finding out a nasty truth but it defines us as person. Even though FORGOTTEN is a fictional book it does express some of those views.
FORGOTTEN is an excellent debut novel that marks the beginning of what I’m sure will be an exciting career for Cat Patrick.
Happy Reading :)
