Book Review for Forget Tomorrow (Forget Tomorrow Series #1) by Pintip Dunn

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been 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 gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a hellish 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.

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. 

Forget Tomorrow is a good quick read for those wanting to delve further into the Young Adult Dystopian genre. It is like Shatter Me, The Hunger Games, and Matched all rolled into one. 

While I don't see this book reaching the same fame and stardom as some of the other dystopian novels out there, it is a great read for those on hiatus from a series or eagerly awaiting the next book to be released.

I really enjoyed Callie's story, and you cannot help but fall in love with Logan right along with her. The novel reads as a singular story, even though it is part of a series. The book was easy to put down, but hard to leave down. At times the story seemed to lag and a bulk of the action is at the beginning and end of the novel. I was compelled to finish and see whether or not Callie's future memory was fulfilled. This story really makes the reader evaluate the permanency of time and space, and whether or not we are in control of our own destiny. 

All in all, this book is worth a read!
