Waiting on Wednesday: The Unhappening of Genesis Lee

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

I'm sorry I've been a bit of a sporadic blogger lately, kids. Morning sickness has dug its crafty, horrible claws into me, and I have to say that I've been pretty much an invalid. I'm working to get back on track though, and I'm hoping that, since this is the worst of it, things will go back to normal soon! So, without further ado...

Seventeen-year-old Genesis Lee has never forgotten anything. As one of the Mementi—a small group of genetically-enhanced humans—Gena remembers everything with the help of her Link bracelets, which preserve memories perfectly. But Links can be stolen, and six people have already lost their lives to a memory thief, including Gena’s best friend.

Anyone could be next. Which is why Gena is less than pleased to meet a strange but charming boy named Kalan who claims that they’ve not only met, but that Gena knows who the thief is.

The problem is, Gena doesn’t remember Kalan, she doesn’t remember seeing the thief, and she doesn’t know why she’s forgetting things— or how much else she might forget. As growing tensions between Mementi and ordinary humans drive the city of Havendale into chaos, Gena and Kalan team up to search for the thief. And as Gena loses more memories, they realize they have to solve the mystery fast.
Science fiction will always be my one true literary love. From superhuman strength, to mind control, to endless and unlimited power sources, there's just so much to draw from and create with. The Unhappening of Genesis Lee sounds like the type of story that dominated my childhood - and that I'm hoping to pass onto my future children. Full of mystery, supernatural abilities and the struggle between good and evil...I hope this book lives up because it sounds like the perfect fit for me!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature from Jill at Breaking the Spine.

  7. I haven't heard of this one, but I agree w/ you about sci fi- it's the sense of wonder that makes it so special. Looks like a great pick!

  8. It's always promising when these scientific concepts are realistically backed up by genetics in the synopsis itself. I haven't heard of this one, Melissa, but it sounds fantastic and utterly original, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what early readers think of it. :)
