Meet Seraphina. She's a typical 16 year-old girl who likes eating grilled cheese sandwiches and doing math. And, oh, she is the only survivor of a 10,000 foot plane crash into the ocean and has an awful case of amnesia! She can't remember anything about her life before the plane crash. Every single memory she ever had is gone. Of course, she is desperate to get them back, to piece together her broken past. But, according to official data, Seraphina doesn't exist. She wasn't on the passenger manifest of the plane that supposedly crashed with her in it. And, her DNA can't be traced to any database on earth!
Meanwhile, she struggles to fit in with her new foster family, and they are constantly astounded with her ignorance on everyday things, such as computers and restaurants. Added to this, it seems as if a shadowy group of people are stalking Seraphina. But why would they want her? Then, a strange boy appears, claiming to know the secrets of Seraphina's past. Does she dare trust him?
Unremembered is a face paced science fiction novel, with a good amount of romance mixed in. With constant twists and turns, it keeps you guessing until the very last page. You find yourself cheering for Serphina, and hoping against hope that her past will become clear. Although, Serphina was not the best protagonist. I found no emotional connection with her and I was simply cheering for her because I wanted to find out what happened next. Maybe this was the case because Seraphina's life was pretty unrelatable. The twist at the end is clever but tragic and the adventure leading up to it is wonderfully unpredictable. This book can definitely keep your attention, as I read it in one day!
Due to intense action and romantic scenes, I recommend this book for people twelve and older. Tweens, teens, and adults alike can enjoy Unremembered, a dramatic, romantic, science fiction.
