What isn't written, isn't remembered. Even your crimes.
Nadia lives in the city of Canaan, where life is safe and structured, hemmed in by white stone walls and no memory of what came before. But every twelve years the city descends into the bloody chaos of the Forgetting, a day of no remorse, when each person's memories – of parents, children, love, life, and self – are lost. Unless they have been written.
In Canaan, your book is your truth and your identity, and Nadia knows exactly who hasn't written the truth. Because Nadia is the only person in Canaan who has never forgotten.But when Nadia begins to use her memories to solve the mysteries of Canaan, she discovers truths about herself and Gray, the handsome glassblower, that will change her world forever. As the anarchy of the Forgetting approaches, Nadia and Gray must stop an unseen enemy that threatens both their city and their own existence – before the people can forget the truth. And before Gray can forget her.
The Forgetting is one of those books that you most definitely will REMEMBER!!
I love Sharon Cameron's writing, so it was no surprise to me that I fell right into the world of The Forgetting and stayed there for days after turning the last page!
This book had so many things that I love! Awesome world-building, a compelling and unique plot, a smart main character who isn't afraid to go against the grain, and lots of surprises!! This book was so much more than I thought it would be. It really forces you to THINK about how important memories truly are, and how much can be lost when we forget...
I don't want to get into much detail, because I feel this book is best read without knowing to much going in. You don't want to spoil it for youself!!
The first few pages are raw, compelling, and pulled me right in! There were no dull moments in this book. It is packed with action, mysteries, and even some romance! I adored The Forgetting and I know you will love it too!!
