[Waiting on Wednesday] Forget Tomorrow
O Waiting on Wednesday é uma rubrica semanal, da autoria do Breaking the Spine, na qual se posta sobre o lançamento dos livros mais aguardados.
Esta semana no WoW, um livro que apareceu assim de repente por aí e agora vejo-o em todo o lado, e ele é Forget Tomorrow, o debut de Pintip Dunn, uma distopia—há muito que não leio uma. A sinopse faz-me lembrar um bocadinho do Minority Report.
Sinopse: Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided… by your future self.
It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision—a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.
Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.
In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo—a hellish prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes.
But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself.
