Missed Potential | Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn

forgettmrwGoodreads Blurb: 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 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 the hellish prison.

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.

My Musings: As with any book that tackles the tricky situation of time travel, I have to give credit simply for undertaking such a difficult task. It’s very hard to not have lots of holes in these types of book, and while I try not to focus too hard on them (because really how can you not have holes in these types of stories?), this book had just a few too many “huh?” moments even for me.

I did like the general idea of this book and the moral issues that the author was trying to showcase were well done. The main character’s inner dialogue was a little rambly and dramatic, however my opinion of this may simply be due to being out of the ideal age range for YA. (I’m 25)

Overall this is an easy, relatively light read (with a couple dark moments) that passed the time well enough. I’m not invested enough to read the next book, but I found this to be a decent read. 2.5/5
