Sixteen-year-old Sera is the only survivor of an explosion on a plane. 

She wakes up in hospital to find that she has no memory. 

The only clue to her identity is a mysterious boy who claims she was part of a top-secret science experiment. 

The only adult she trusts insists that she shouldn’t believe anything that anybody tells her.

In a tense and pacy novel exploding with intrigue and action, Sera must work out who she is and where she came from. 

Eventually she will learn that the only thing worse than forgetting her past is remembering it.

The Review: "Forgetting you who are is so much more complicated than simply forgetting your name. It’s also forgetting your dreams. Your aspirations. What makes you happy. What you pray you’ll never have to live without. It’s meeting yourself for the first time, and not being sure of your first impression."

I really enjoyed Unremembered. I'd heard mixed feelings about this book before-hand so I wasn't quite sure what to expect but, once I got reading, I found myself pleasantly surprised. 

Sera is a sixteen year old girl who wakes up with no memory after being the only survivor on a plane crash. After a lot of media attention, Sera is placed with foster parents in a quiet time until they can locate her real family, however when a boy called Zen, turns up promising to rescue Sera and to help her remember, she realises there’s more to her story that no-one knows and the only one who seems to have the answers are her and Zen. Sera realises that remembering the crash and her past is now more important than ever – especially with danger lurking. 

I found Unremembered very enjoyable and entertaining. It’s not a story that is new to me but it was still one I certainly enjoyed. It was a story that managed to pull me in from the start and I easily fell in love with the characters. Sera was a very likable character and she was also a great narrator. She’s thrown into a world she doesn’t remember, with only getting little hints of who she was before. It’s not until Zen appears that he makes everything so much clearer. He holds all the answers Sera’s after and she’s certainly not prepared to hear them. It’s a lot for her to take because her existence is so unique – it scares her. Luckily enough Zen brings her peace and love and he really helps her. 
Also the story was set at great pace and wasn't rushed at all and I loved how the author brought Shakespear's work into the story. 

"S + Z = 1886"

In all, I thought Jessica Brody did an awesome job with bringing Unremembered to life. It’s a great story, with great characters and a fantastic romance that you can’t help root for.

I loved this book so much! and while you are right it's not an entirely new concept, I was still totally enthralled by this story and the way it was told. Zen was a wonderful character and .. his name is quite fitting right?:)

I really enjoyed this book! I thought it was faced paced but in the type of way that I was reading and wouldn't realize how much time had passed because I was so immersed in the story. I like how Zen helped her figure out who she was again!
