Overview

Georgie's new heart saved her life...but now she's losing her mind. "An eerie mystery wrapped in a heart-wrenching romance—will leave you breathless!" — Gretchen McNeil, author of TEN and the Don't Get Mad series

When Georgie Kendrick wakes up after a heart transplant she feels...different. The organ beating in her chest isn't in tune with the rest of her body. Like it still belongs to someone else. Someone with terrible memories...memories that are slowly replacing her own. A dark room, a man in the shadows, the sharp taste of adrenaline — these are her donor's final memories. Pieces of a deadly puzzle. And if Georgie doesn't want them to be the last thing she remembers, she has to find out the truth behind her donor's death...before she loses herself completely.

Fans of Lisa McMann and April Henry will devour this edgy, gripping thriller with a twist readers won't see coming!

The Forgetting was not a fluffy young adult novel, but a novel that looks at the very real issue of sex trafficking.  It is dark and often disturbing, but it is also beautiful with its moments of love and change.  Georgie has just had a heart transplant and she can't help but feel like something is a just a bit off with her new heart.  It is as if the new heart still belongs to someone else and, at first, she doesn't know what to make of that or what to do about it.  But she follows it's guide, feeling as if she needs to find out what it is trying to tell her in order to get her own life back.  But the path the heart takes her is one that is dark and dangerous and it irrevocably changes her. As Georgie goes deeper and deeper into the underworld of Boston, she sees things that she never knew existed in her sheltered world.  No matter how dangerous it may be, she cannot let things rest, cannot turn away from what she has seen and what she has learned.  One of the things I like best is that Georgie, when she acts impulsively, has enough self-awareness to know it and admit it, rather than be portrayed as a foolish girl.  I also like that she doesn't try to do everything herself and knows when she needs help.  There are so many elements to this book... love, loss, friendship, change, growth.  In the course of Georgie's search for answers, she meets Nate.  He is inextricably involved with her search and he opens her eyes to the reality of these young girls.  As Georgie learns more, she loses parts of herself in ways and for reasons that she never expected.  Her friendships change as she changes and there is a bit of a message about how deeply life-altering events can affect all aspects of your life.   My Recommendation:  The author does a great job of describing a world that most of us know exists, but tend not to see or consider.  These girls are forced into the sex trade, controlled and abused.  They are very young and they are used in unspeakable ways.  This is an eye-opening and thought-provoking book that I think is a must-read for girls and adults alike.

How would you feel to awaken with a start not knowing where you are or what happened to you?.. To realize that you were knocking at deaths door only to be saved by a heart transplant.. When all of a sudden Sights, Dreams and feelings that you once knew were no longer yours.. To be plunged into a world that has nothing to do to you but in order to become a glimmer of yourself again you have to follow your instincts and go where this heart is leading.. A world where a very serious situation is hiding in plain sight something you never knew about sitting right there under your very nose..Did I mention your a teenage girl who has to deal with the normal life of parents, curfews and friends who would never truly understand what your going through.. That being said I picked up this book because of the cover.. I bought the book because of the story line.. It is by far no where close to the books that I normally read but I was extremely happy with the overall read.. It takes a very serious topic and entangles it with a sweet love story.. I would recommend this book to anyone even if it is not your normal read it is still a really good book..
