Waiting on Wednesday - 9

I haven't done a Waiting on Wednesday since January! I never seem to have free time on Wednesdays or when I do I just don't feel like posting anything. But as you know, Waiting on Wednesday was created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

Memento Nora by Angie Smibert

Nora, the popular girl and happy consumer, witnesses a horrific bombing on a shopping trip with her mother. In Nora’s near-future world, terrorism is so commonplace that she can pop one little white pill to forget and go on like nothing ever happened. However, when Nora makes her first trip to a Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic, she learns what her mother, a frequent forgetter, has been frequently forgetting. Nora secretly spits out the pill and holds on to her memories. The memory of the bombing as well as her mother’s secret and her budding awareness of the world outside her little clique make it increasingly difficult for Nora to cope. She turns to two new friends, each with their own reasons to remember, and together they share their experiences with their classmates through an underground comic. They soon learn, though, they can’t get away with remembering. (From Angie Smibert's website).

No cover yet, but I think Memento Nora sounds amazing. It's dystopian so it should be good, but the memory aspect sounds so interesting! For more information on the book visit Presenting Lenore's Dystopian August posts. Look for it in stores April 2011.
