Harrowing, heartbreaking, and yet so full of hope. -- Jennifer Donnelly, New York Times bestselling author of Stepsister

Haunting and lyrical. An incredible true story of bravery, survival, and defiance. -- Alan Gratz, New York Times bestselling author of Refugee

Wildly inventive yet somehow believable. . . .

The Forgetting is Sharon Cameron's fourth young adult novel, and she's grown adept at blurring the lines between fantasy, dystopian and science-fiction genres.
