I pre-order just about anything from Jessica and typically love her work. The Forgotten Girl, however, was a big disappointment. First, there were *A LOT* of errors: typographical, grammatical and editorial (such as things in the wrong place in the story and narrative inconsistencies). The grammatical errors were everywhere (you're and your, it's and its, pluralizing by apostrophe), stuff you don't typically find in Jessica's novels. I know auto-correct and spell check are fallible - but it's as if no one bothered to copy edit, at all, before upload. I'd rather an author delay publication than release something so below par.

All of the above is that much more frustrating because the story just wasn't all that good. I felt like I was slogging through, waiting for the pieces to coalesce, only to have the story collapse under its own weight. Important narrative elements (back story for events prior to trauma(s), family relationships, etc) weren't rendered in sufficient detail to scaffold the denouement. I felt kind of pissed that I'd soldiered through for nothing.

Like many films, this book has an intriguing concept that didn't live up to its promise. Psychological disorders can be fascinating when handled well, but they are also very complex. Among other things, you can't skimp on character development. I felt as if the protagonist was two-dimensional at best, and everyone else was a flimsy cardboard cutout. I'd give this one a pass and check out Sorensen's Nova series, or any of the Callie/Kayden/Misha/Ella books.

I admire the ability authors have to keep putting out books and each one being different every time. Not many authors can do it, but it’s safe to say Jessica Sorensen has it on lock.

This was Sorensen’s darkest story yet and so far from anything else she’s ever written.
I was blown away by this story and wasn’t expecting any part of it.
Maddie suffers from Psychogenic Amnesia. She’s had a traumatic past that has caused her to suppress her memories prior to the age of fifteen. Now, six years later, she still is unable to remember anything despite various efforts. Frustration takes over as her clouded memories disable her from living her life. She also has to deal with her dark side. Not knowing exactly who she is, Maddie's not sure which side to embrace; good or bad.

“It’s hard to see the reality when there’s so much craziness inside me.”

Suddenly, Maddie begins to experience blackouts. When she awakes, she finds chaos and more often than not, death. She’s not certain who’s to blame, but she can’t help but notice all signs point to her.

“I am hiding behind a mask.
I’m hiding behind my amnesia.
I’m hiding.
Lost.
Lost.
Lost.
Drifting.”

This book is smothered in crazy, frightening, and mind-f***ing darkness. I’m not easily scared by much. The biggest thing that gets me is psychological things. I can say in all honesty, this book had me hugging my pillow and looking over my shoulder.
When I wasn’t doing that, I was busy attempting to put all the puzzle pieces together. My face nearly froze in a scrunched up, confused facial expression. I was absolutely stumped by what was going on. I thought I knew what was happening or coming next, and every time I was so very wrong.

I was excited to read Jessica Sorensen's The Forgotten Girl, but damn this book was no romance. Jessica wrote a dark thriller that had gasping in every chapter, while trying to decipher reality from fantasy. At times, I did not know WTF was occurring, so I found myself wanting to know more so I finish the book in one night and said WTH when I finished the book! You will not be disappointed, but do not expect hearts and flowers.

Maddie is twenty-one years old, but has memory loss due to a horrific trauma experience. For the past six years, her mother has been making her attend therapy sessions to Maddie move forward in her life. Unfortunately, Maddie cannot move forward until she recovers her memory.

"I have Psychogenic Amnesia, which more than likely means there was some sort of stress factor that played a part in why I have no idea who the hell I was before the age of fifteen."

When Maddie starts having "black-out" moments, she starts doubting herself because people starting dying. She starts to wonder if she is the one doing all the killing, especially when she finds herself with evidence from each murder. The doubt heightens her paranoia even more making her edgy and unstable.

"The voice is right - I am a whore. That among other things. I'm a sinner. A rebellion. A punk. A psychopath, at least according to the voice."

Maggie soon uncovers the horrid pieces of her past and lies told to cover-up the secrets that have haunted her the past six years.

"I never wanted to be crazy. Never wanted to fully act on my twisted impulses, the one's I've been fighting for the last six years. They were just supposed to be thoughts, but now... is it possible I've brought the madness out and made it a reality.
