Forget Tomorrow
Release Date: 11/03/15
Entangled Teen
Source: Review Copy from Publisher
Rating: 4 Out of 5 Stars


Summary from Goodreads:

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided...by your future self.

It's Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she's eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they're meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.

Or in Callie's case, a criminal.

In her vision, she sees herself murdering her beloved -- and gifted --  younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested, treated viciously, and placed in Limbo―a prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes this hellish prison.

But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself. 

Review:

Thank you so much Entangled Teen for sending me a copy of Forget Tomorrow for review. This in no way affected my opinion in my review.

I had wanted to read Forget Tomorrow for some time. The cover is stunning and the concept drew me right in. I loved the idea of having to solve a problem before it even happened. The fact that Callie and her sister are so close and she is horrified by the very thought of her future actions just added to the dynamics of the story. I thought this book might end up being predictable but it was anything but and left me guessing at several points. 

Logan and Callie's dynamic is perfect and I was so happy that there was a backstory and history with them so it was not just an insta love story. Pintip did such a fabulous job building the chemistry between these two but still keeping the characters open and vulnerable which is a raw and true emotion most young people face when facing the risk of falling in love.


If you are looking for a suspenseful young adult read that will leave you wanting more then you need to read Forget Tomorrow. Will Callie be able to change the future once she knows what is at risk? Or does fate have to big of a hand in the future ahead? This will leave you guessing right up till the last chapter.

How My Body Talked to Me -- and What It Said

My junior year of college, my hands froze. Not good-God-the-library-is-cold froze. Not even what-on-earth-do-I-write-next froze. I mean my hands physically froze, as in the muscles from my neck to my shoulders to my elbows to my forearms locked up, so that I couldn't move them. And they stayed that way for a week. I couldn't brush my hair. I couldn't bring a fork to my mouth. All I could do was lie in bed, terrified that my life was never going to be the same again. 

It wasn't. And a part of me couldn't be more grateful. 

Oh, I don't mean the physical stuff. I wouldn't wish that on anybody. I was eventually diagnosed with fibromyalgia/RSI. The only way I got through college and law school was to hire a typist and take my exams orally. (I even took the bar exam orally). To this day, I can't type on a keyboard or lift heavy things without considerable pain. During flare-ups, the pain is so unbearable, I want to curl into a fetal position and scream.

So why am I grateful? Because my physical disability led me to my true path in life. Let me explain. I went to Harvard College and Yale Law School. There was enormous pressure on me, from my parents and society at large, to have a career that was steady and secure. One that made use of my abilities. One that was lucrative. 

At first, in spite of the pain, I was determined to do that. I became a litigation attorney at a corporate law firm, and I was good at it. I was also miserable. But no matter. I was exactly where I was supposed to be. 

And then, I had a flare-up. This one landed me flat on my back for six months (the pain in my neck and shoulders being too severe for me to hold my head up). In the midst of this suffering, I had an epiphany. My body wasn’t punishing me. It was talking to mein a way I couldn't ignore. It was telling me: Get off of this path. This isn’t what you’re supposed to be doing.

I've wanted to be an author since I was six years old -- but I put that dream aside because it was too frivolous, too impractical. I focused on other pursuits because I wasn't going to succeed as a writer, anyway. 
I think the voice inside me was sick of being ignored. It had to speak louder and louder, in the only way it knew how, until I finally listened. Until I finally understood that I had no choice but to pursue my dream.

Once I had this realization, I left the legal profession and never looked back. Ten years later, my dream is finally coming true with the publication of FORGET TOMORROW. 

These days, I write books on my cell phone, and I'm no longer miserable. Some days, I can even forget that I have this physical condition. But the best part is: I know at the end of my life, I will look back and have no regrets. No matter what happens with my writing career, at least I'll know that I tried.

So, thank you, body, for talking to me. I'm so glad I listened. 

What does the voice inside your body say to you? Have you been listening? Will you?
