More About the Author
I'm the author of several young adult books, including MEMENTO NORA, THE FORGETTING CURVE, and THE MEME PLAGUE. I've also published many short stories, for both adults and teens.

The book is set in a dystopian future in which memories can be removed. There are suggestions that removing memories might be a benefit to people who need to suppress certain horrific memories. But the overwhelming thrust of the book is that the ability to remove memories is a valuable weapon for a Big Brother-like government, especially one wed tightly to powerful corporations.
Against this backdrop, Aiden, a teenager, heads home from his boarding school in Switzerland when a bombing apparently threatens the safety of the city. His cousin, Winter, meanwhile, has just come home herself--without her memories. When Aiden shows her an underground comic she sent him, she has no memory. Meanwhile, other misfits are having their own problems with the new rule that everyone must have a security chip implanted (making identification and tracking far easier), and it seems that some people are having the chips implanted without being aware of it.
Without having read the first book in this series, I had some difficulty following the various characters, though I can't say that I ever lost the thread. I just had the sense that there were reference that I was missing.Read more ›
The Forgetting Curve is a solid sophomore entry in Angie Smibert's dystopian young adult series. I like that the focus was moved away from Micah and Nora, the main characters of the previous book, but stayed close with Micah's best friend Winter and another of her friends Velvet. The balance of focus between the three characters feels much better this time around with each character taking different approaches to the mystery of why Winter doesn't remember anything about Memento. That said, The Forgetting Curve feels a good deal slower than Memento Nora. It digs a good deal more into the characters' quiet drama, lots of introspective questioning of what's the truth and what's just another door that needs opening.
The TFCs were much less of a thing this time around, less of a looming presence in the background, the focus was much more on Nomura's newest cell phone. The Chipster is the newest part of the new government initiative requiring every citizen of Hamilton to get a microchip implanted at the base of their skull for identification. For their own good of course.Read more ›
Aiden Nomura is a teenager who likes to hack. He believes hacking opens doors for him that will ultimately expose what the universe means. When bombs start going off and TFC centers start opening up in Europe, where he goes to school, he knows things are changing. When his cousin Winter suddenly has a breakdown, he returns to the United States to find out what is going on. He meets others who believe the new chip being introduced, and implanted into people's heads, is there to control them, and it wipes their memories clean.
From the very beginning I knew I was going to like this book. It reminded me of the movie Total Recall, which I love. I don't normally read science fiction but this was a mix of sci fi and dystopian, which made it even more interesting. The short chapters were great in helping move the story along. And I wasn't distract by the three different points of view that were presented, as I normally might be in a fast paced book.
From the beginning I like Aiden. He's sassy and smooth. He knows how to work the system to get what he wants. His character is easy to follow and easy to like. And he cares about his family, immensely. He doesn't want to see them get hurt. He goes out of his way to make sure they are safe. And Simibert does a great job of writing from a male perspective.
Aiden's cousin Winter is also extremely likable. She likes to be different. She dies her hair different colors, and creates sculptures out of all different kinds of materials. She's young, but spunky and comes across as older than her almost 15 years.
Velvet is another spunky character. And she and Aiden really click quite well.Read more ›
