From School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up—Dunn's brisk-paced debut dystopian novel begins with Callie and her friends anxiously awaiting their 17th birthday, on which they will receive a memory from the future. This important vision will affect their lives, their careers, and all aspects of their destiny. Callie's day finally arrives, and she finds out that her future self will one day stab her clairvoyant little sister. Horrified at seeing herself kill the person she's closest to, Callie turns to Logan, a friend from long ago, who helps her escape. Trying to avoid a future in which she's imprisoned for her whole life by a government organization, Callie follows Logan to a community in the woods where others like her live to keep their tragic visions from happening. Feelings between the two spark. Callie must decide if she is in charge of her fate or if her fate is in charge of her. The premise is a good one, and those who enjoyed Lauren Oliver's "Delirium" trilogy (HarperCollins) will be fans of this tale. Dunn includes likable characters, the obligatory evil leaders, and an oppressive government. There is a twist ending that will catch most readers off-guard, which will thrill some and frustrate others. A few loose ends and an epilogue leave the story open to a possible sequel. VERDICT Recommended for avid dystopian fans.—Jane Hebert, Glenside Public Library District, Glendale Heights, IL
"Debut YA author Pintip Dunn's Forget Tomorrow delivers a page-turner full of adventure and danger. The story's creative premise - receiving your future memory at 17 years old - provides enough what ifs to amp up the action in each chapter with the suspenseful race-against-time theme." - Michelle Monkou, USA Today
"Forget Tomorrow was a gorgeous, refreshing story that has restored my faith in dystopian. Filled with action, adventure, romance, amazing characters and a heartfelt storyline that you can connect with. ...[A]t the beginning you are thrown into this world, there's no unnecessary build up, you're hooked from the very beginning with this unpredictable plot and then left shocked and surprised by the clever cliffhanger ending. It's safe to say, I loved this book- Forget Tomorrow is a magnificent debut and I can't wait to see was Dunn does next." - Cody, Literary-ly Obsessed
"There's a whirlwind of plot in this novel [...] There's also an abundance of mystery [.] A YA adventure with ethereal prose and appealing characters." - Kirkus Reviews
"With a cliffhanger ending that somehow still packs a powerful punch of hope, FORGET TOMORROW is a top pick for readers who love action and themes around fate and the future." - YA Books Central

She is compelled to return to Eden City, hoping to rescue Jessa and take her away from the city. The tension throughout is well described and the reader continually wonders how it will all end. We learn the fate that awaits the members of the city. We are brought to the moment Callie is called upon to unravel her memory and learn a devastating truth about the society. Does Callie have the ability to exercise a free will?
Treatment of this society and its workings are well done.
Callie is expecting to learn she is going to be a Master Chef. She loves to cook and that would be a fantastic future. However, this is not what she sees. What her future holds is her worst nightmare. Running away and hiding sounds like a good plan but maybe turning herself in to the authorities would be better for everyone.
Just one person stands in her way...Logan. Logan is the boy she used to have a crush on until five years ago when he stopped talking to her. Now, he's there for her and he wants to help her. By helping her, he reveals his and his family's secrets placing himself in danger.
Callie tries to fight her future but when her sister is taken, she knows she must act. It doesn't matter that she might end up being where she's terrified to be... in close proximity to her sister again.
I was excited to read this book. The premise of learning your future and deciding to fulfill it or change it, is intriguing to me. Callie knew her memory shouldn't become real and she tried to fight it the best way she could. But, how much does fate play a part in our decisions?
If anything this book left me with too many questions. Yes, I want to know what happens to Callie, but, I'm wondering if her dad is out there, If Angela is going to change her mind, if Callie has more powers tha she realizes, if two receivers can learn to communicate?
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Bring it on!
I found myself turning page after page because the writing is just that good, the characters are that human - beautiful and flawed. It moves so fast you hardly know how much time has passed until you get to the shocking ending. This is an awesome first novel. I can't wait to read Pintip Dunn's next one.
