My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads)Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future. 

Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if's in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies.

My Summary: Ever since London was 6 years old, she`s had no memories to speak of. Every night at 4:33 am, her memory resets and she`s back to square one, not remembering anything about the day before. She can`t remember the past... but she can see the future. She remembers things that haven`t happened yet, and once they do happen, she forgets about them. London doesn`t know why or how this happens, but she knows her mother and her best friend Jamie are the only constants she can rely on.

Then she meets Luke, and try as she might London can`t find him in her visions of the future. But after falling in love with him, London can`t figure out why he`s such a huge part of her present but not her future.

My Thoughts: I really, really like this novel! I finished it in one sitting, less than 5 hours. The main character is really likable, and you sympathize for her - imagine how difficult it would be to start your whole life over from scratch each and every morning! And despite it all, she doesn`t sit around and complain - she does what she can to try and maintain some semblance of normalcy. 

Luke was a great character as well. I loved the way the author made him seem so familiar - you start feeling like you know him yourself. And his talents... well, let`s just say I`d let him paint my ear anytime (that`ll make more sense after you read the book, I swear).

I really enjoyed the author`s writing style, and the way the reader knows what`s going on even when London doesn`t. And the twist at the end was amazing!

Final Thoughts: I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a refreshing read.
