The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

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 visiona 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 Limboa 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.

*Somewhat spoilers…nothing big or major*

Pintip Dunn has taken a lot of little bits from everything that we love in other books and twisted it around in her own way to bring an unique futuristic world.  It touches on the intense bond between two sisters and breaking down a false government in a Hunger Game kind of way.  It touches on reaching a certain age and then your destiny is chosen in a Divergent kind of way.   However, like I said earlier, it is uniquely Dunn’s own story of sisterhood, becoming an adult, and corruption of government.

Forget Tomorrow was a little bit darker than I expected it to be and I feel like was necessary for this darkness to lurk around in this book.  After Callie gets thrown into Limbo, she starts to learn about the government that she has grown up in and all these new facts starts to change her mind.  Limbo is a dreadful place. After Logan helps her escape and takes her to Harmony, Callie realizes what life should be like for all citizens.  During her time at Harmony, Callie starts to hone in on powers that she didn’t know she has and after seeing a flash of her sister’s memory, she returns to the city.  This, for me, is when the action starts and books started to get really good and unfortunately this is where it ends.

I feel like most of the first book is setting us readers up with some vital information so that the second book can rock out world.  I am excited to see where this series goes and how in the world Callie, Logan, and everyone else will rise above and make a difference.
