What isn't written, isn't remembered. Even your crimes.

Nadia lives in the city of Canaan, where life is safe and structured, hemmed in by white stone walls and no memory of what came before. But every twelve years the city descends into the bloody chaos of the Forgetting, a day of no remorse, when each person's memories – of parents, children, love, life, and self – are lost. Unless they have been written.

In Canaan, your book is your truth and your identity, and Nadia knows exactly who hasn't written the truth. Because Nadia is the only person in Canaan who has never forgotten.

But when Nadia begins to use her memories to solve the mysteries of Canaan, she discovers truths about herself and Gray, the handsome glassblower, that will change her world forever. As the anarchy of the Forgetting approaches, Nadia and Gray must stop an unseen enemy that threatens both their city and their own existence – before the people can forget the truth. And before Gray can forget her.

Nicole's Book Diaries (nicolesbookdiaries) | 2308 comments Found it! I'm joining!


Yogesh Jain | 128 comments Chapter four done.. The mystery is getting complicated.. My mind has already started processing the possiblities and so far nothing i can think off... I guess it will take few more chapters before i can start predicting...

ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments hello guy, sorry to be late I started it on the 10th but then the story was too confusing for me to get into at first..

I finished chapter 3 (view spoiler)

Danielle (dannieannie94) | 289 comments 20% , Chapter 5, Page 78:

I'm sorry... but it just is confusing to me, and I'm not sure I'm really all that into it so far. It really needs to go back and explain things a bit more instead of starting out with someone running about breaking rules and jumbling facts here and there.

yeah, it's definitely not a well-explained world which is disappointing for a such promising story..


Yogesh Jain | 128 comments Every question will fall in line.. Just wait for it...
