GoodReads Summary: The only thing worse than forgetting her past... is remembering it.
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?

For me Unremembered was a "been there done that" kind of read. It brought nothing new to the fast-paced action thriller/chase story.
Let's start with the positive. I like Brody's writing style, at the beginning of each chapter the first sentence gets straight to the point, and sucks you in right away.
"Violet" was likable enough, but nothing really made her stick out amongst the crowd of YA heroines. When the love interest, Zen and "Violet" are re-united I didn't feel any spark between them. "Violet" can't remember him or their past, so I was expecting to feel my heart ache for them, but honestly? I just didn't care.
Predictability. The "big reveal" did not shock me at all, I had guessed very early on what it was. It turned out to be something that has been done many times before in this genre. I felt myself sighing and rolling my eyes a number of times, and in all honestly I had to force myself to finish this book.
Overall, while Unremembered wasn't a bad book it wasn't particularly exciting or gripping either.
