Macmillan, 2013. ISBN 978-4472-2112-8. 300pp
(Age: 13+) Recommended.  Most of us believe that not remembering anything could be quite dangerous - but for Seraphina it is remembering that could prove to be more dangerous.
Seraphina, the only survivor of an aeroplane crash in the Pacific Ocean, wakes up in a hospital bed to the first day that she can remember. Oddly enough Serpahina does not appear on the plane's passenger list nor are there any records of her - anywhere. Otherwise unharmed but consumed with the intrinsic knowledge that someone is out to harm her Seraphina is desperate to find out who she is, what happened to her and why. With the help of her mysterious love interest Zen, who claims to know her from the past, we are taken into a world where science is used for evil and making people forget is all in a day's work. Still if Seraphina can learn to trust Zen love just might conquer all.
Yes the plot has been done before, but author Jessica Brody's sci-fi thriller Unremembered still provides an enthralling read as good fights evil and true love it seems is never really forgotten. Be warned though, Unremembered is the first novel in a trilogy and you will have to read the next one.....
