Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…by your future self.
It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.
Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.
In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a hellish prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes.
But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself.
Forget Tomorrow reminded me of the Starters series by Lissa Price, which I really enjoyed. Although they were a bit similar, this book is notably enjoyable, not that I didn’t enjoy the other one.
It follows the story of Callie, who’s about to receive her vision on her 17th birthday. The vision is a memory sent from the future for each person’s guidance. She was pretty excited to receive her memory until she got it and it showed her how she killed her younger sister. From that, she embarked on a mission to change her fate and stop herself from killing her sister.
“Maybe we could learn to breathe again if we could only forget tomorrow.”
The characters of the story were moderately expressed. Some were interesting, and some were flat. Callie and Logan were of course given the spotlight, but there were a lot of other minor characters present which really didn’t feel like they were supposed to be there. I felt like the book introduced a lot of characters which made the story crowded, I hope this wouldn’t be an issue for the next book because they all have a lot of potential.
The romance was a bit fast-paced for me. The chemistry between Callie and Logan were okay. I wasn’t totally swooning over them, but I wasn’t annoyed either. I guess it just needed more building up.
“If I had someone like you in my life, I would never leave to begin with.”
The narration was very excellent. I loved Pintip’s writing style. The world-building was okay as well and I felt like the visual element of the story is a bit lacking. However, the book really has a lot of potential, which I hope will be shown in the next book.
