Hardie Grant Egmont. ISBN: 9781921690624.
(Age: 16+) For London Lane, life is a mystery. She can the future in flashes like memories but yesterday has gone just like the days before. Her only memory of the day before is the journal entries she leaves herself the night before. London is able to remember what she will wear tomorrow and a funeral that won't happen until years to come but the boy she loves today has evaporated from her mind. She can't see Luke in her past or her future but today she loves him and that's what matters.
London is also able to see her best friend, Jamie, getting it on with one of the teachers at their school. She can see him breaking Jamie's heart and London sets herself the difficult task of changing Jamie's future before he is able to hurt Jamie.  
This novel has a bit for everyone with romance and mysteries that surrounds London and Luke. When you think you know what is going to happen, something different happens. This novel was really well written and once I started I couldn't put it down making the end of the story come too quickly. I would highly recommended Forgotten to anyone that is looking for a great read. The author was able to make me feel sorry for London at times and other times were able to express London's feelings that I was able to feel what she would be feeling.' I would reread this book again and again.
