Some memories are better left forgotten...

After a daring escape from the scientists at Diotech who created her, Seraphina believes she is finally safe from the horrors of her past. But new threats await Sera and her boyfriend, Zen, at every turn as Zen falls prey to a mysterious illness and Sera’s extraordinary abilities make it more and more difficult to stay hidden. Meanwhile, Diotech has developed a dangerous new weapon designed to apprehend her. A weapon that even Sera will be powerless to stop. Her only hope of saving Zen’s life and defeating the company that made her is a secret buried deep within her mind. A secret that Diotech will kill to protect. And it won’t stay forgotten for long.

Packed with mystery, suspense, and romance, this riveting second installment of Jessica Brody’s Unremembered trilogy delivers more heart-pounding action as loyalties are tested, love becomes a weapon, and no one’s memories are safe.




Unremembered (Unremembered, #1)UNREMEMBERED Book One
Publication: March 5, 2013
By: Farrar, Straus, & Giroux (BYR) 
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?

From popular young adult author Jessica Brody comes a compelling and suspenseful new sci-fi series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

About the Author
Jessica Brody knew from a young age that she wanted to be a writer. She started self "publishing" her own books when she was seven years old, binding the pages together with cardboard, wallpaper samples and electrical tape.

After graduating from Smith College in 2001 where she double majored in Economics and French and minored in Japanese, Jessica later went on to work for MGM Studios as a Manager of Acquisitions and Business Development. In May of 2005, Jessica quit her job to follow her dream of becoming a published author.

In four short years, Jessica has sold nine novels (two adult novels to St. Martin's Press and seven young adult novels to Farrar, Straus, Giroux.) THE FIDELITY FILES, her debut, released in stores (in real binding) in June of 2008 and the the follow-up, LOVE UNDER COVER in November 2009. THE KARMA CLUB, Jessica's debut young adult novel released in April of 2010 and her second YA release, MY LIFE UNDECIDED just recently hit bookstores in June 2011.

52 REASONS TO HATE MY FATHER (which was recently optioned for film) will be out in Summer 2012 and UNREMEMBERED, (also optioned for film), the first book in a new teen sci-fi series, will be released in early 2013.

Jessica's books are published and translated in over twelve foreign countries including the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Russia, Brazil, China, Portugal, Israel, Indonesia and Taiwan.

Unforgotten Playlist

Let me paint you a picture. An author sits at her desk, opens her manuscript file, searches through thousands of songs in her iTunes until she comes across the perfect one to fit the scene she’s about to tackle. She selects “repeat,” plugs in her headphones, presses play, and for the next hour, she’s completely lost in the dancing entanglement of words and melody and lyrics and voice.

Is that not the most whimsical, romantic imagery of writing a novel?

Yeah, too bad my writing process isn’t anything like that.

I really wish I were one of those authors who could write while listening to music. I envy those who can. I’m just not. I’ve learned this about myself, I’ve accepted it, I’ve moved on.

When I write, I have to listen to the same thing every time. It’s a waterfall track that basically sounds like someone is going SHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! in your ear the entire time. Like you’re in a crazy library nightmare where everyone is shushing you. Not exactly the romantic scene I described above. But hey, it works for me.

But that’s not to say I’m not inspired by music. Although I can’t actually write to music, I like to listen to music while I brainstorm or while I’m walking around my neighborhood, trying to solve pesky plot problems. Here are some of the songs I relied on during the course of writing UNFORGOTTEN and the chapter of the book where I think they best fit.

    •    Fix You by Coldplay – Chapter 38: Process

    •    Set Fire to the Rain by Adele – Chapter 6: Locked

    •    Please Remember Me by Tim McGraw – Chapter 67: Grayed

    •    She’s on Fire by Train – Chapter 43: War

    •    New York, New York – Chapter 23: Identified

    •    I Dare you to Move by Switchfoot – Chapter 31: Disturbance


I hope you enjoy UNFORGOTTEN!
