Book Review: Memento Nora by Angie Smibert

Rating: 4/5

A teen struggles to hold onto her memories-and her identity-in a world that wants everyone to forget-and keep on shopping. Three dynamic teens come together to create a comic book of their memories.

     This book is about this group of teens in a future world where you can forget events with a pill. But one day Nora decides to spit out the pill after seeing a bookstore explode.  Nora and her new friend Micah create a comic called Memento in which they draw the events of what happened. After that everything is nothing but a 100 MPH train with action.
     This book is absolutely GLOSSY. (word from the book)  There was never a moment while I was reading the book I got bored. Each chapter of the book is told from the point of view of each main character Nora, Micah, and Winter. Ms. Smibert does an excellent job creating her characters. They are all very interesting with the way they act and talk. The world around the characters also very interesting the way the government runs it and what TFC actually is.
     Overall I give this book a 4/5. Its a short read but totally worth it. you will fall in love with Memento Nora. The way the author lays out the story is absolutely brilliant.  IF you love books set in the future and some action and mystery thrown in. I would recommend Memento Nora without any problem.
