Remember Yesterday is the sequel to the NYT Bestselling and RITA™ Award-winning book, Forget Tomorrow.

Sixteen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries, if only she’d let TechRA study her. But ten years ago, the scientists kidnapped and experimented on her, leading to severe ramifications for her sister, Callie. She’d much rather break into their labs and sabotage their research—starting with Tanner Callahan, budding scientist and the boy she loathes most at school.

The past isn’t what she assumed, though—and neither is Tanner. He’s not the arrogant jerk she thought he was. And his research opens the door to the possibility that Jessa can rectify a fatal mistake made ten years earlier. She’ll do anything to change the past and save her sister—even if it means teaming up with the enemy she swore to defeat.

Remember Yesterday is a heartfelt and magnetic sequel to Forget Tomorrow. The emotions are high, the risks even higher, and the danger is enough to keep the pages turning. 

READ THIS BOOK IF: 

  • You’re searching for a sister bond that transcends time and space. That kind of love is timeless. 
  • You love to be kept on your toes.
  • You’re looking for a scifi, dystopia world with time travel, precognition, and dare to test Fate. 

PROS:

  • I thought book 1 was emotional but Remember Yesterday, talk about emotional turmoil. The feels are deep, resonate, and hit you with a punch that you don’t see coming. Sometimes they’re bold confessions, other times they’re bittersweet truths. No matter what form these power surges of emotion come in, they’ll get under your skin. The impact is hard-hitting and compelling. 
  • Callie and Jessa. Despite the fact that Callie is not a predominant character in this book in terms of agency, her presence influences every choice, every step towards the future. Her memory is a legacy that rebuilds the world. Jessa and Callie’s love for each other is an aching, beautiful thing. It builds and transforms into something unbreakable and infinite. You feel every single ounce of the respect and adoration. I don’t know that I’ve ever read a stronger sibling bond.
  • If you remember little 6-year-old Jessa from book 1, you’ll recall that she was always a little feisty, energetic thing. This Jessa, the one who has lived through years of self-esteem issues, a strained relationship with her mother, and the sobering reality and guilt of her cherished sister’s choice, is not at all what I expected. She’s sporty, a bit of a daredevil, and kind of flits about. There are subtle allusions to her personality that are, unfortunately not expanded on. Jessa is likable, bold, outspoken, and her ability to choose who she wants to be and how she wants to live is one of her greatest superpowers. Choice, and the freedom to make those choices, even in the most dire of situations is a remarkable form of bravery and sacrifice. 
  • The romance. It’s sexy, flirty, a sort of love/hate attraction that simmers and escalates quickly. The attraction is undeniable and yet, somehow innocent despite the innuendo. They’re discovering each other. They’re puzzled and confused by their bond that seemed to develop overnight and while this usually feels like instalove, this felt right. 

CONS:

  • Jessa’s personality is slightly stunted by the fact that her hobbies and her likes are downplayed and glossed over. There are mentions of them throughout, but they’re far and few between. Jessa’s advocacy, her selflessness could have been emphasized sooner. That compassion was always there. Things like her love of hoverboard, parkour, that’s the side that we don’t see that I would have liked to. 
  • The world in Forget Tomorrow is defunct now, there’s not too much interaction with the world as it is now. 10 years have passed, I would have felt more in tune with this new world had there been a summary or precise breakdown of what changed. There’s not much dealing between the divided compound of Harmony and the outside world. It felt as though time was super short and the book took place over a time span that was lightning speed for what happened. 
  • If you haven’t ventured back into Forget Tomorrow since the last time you read it, Remember Yesterday will be a rough and abrupt start. I had no clue what was going on and scrambled to remember what happened in book 1.

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 gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested 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 the 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.
