Introducing MEMENTO NORA by Angie Smibert!

This week is the epic launch of MEMENTO NORA by Angie Smibert! I'm starting off the awesome, and throughout this week, there will be much more to come, with Angie herself wrapping it up for us on Friday, April 1. Which is no joke, because that's launch day!

From Angie's website:

Summary: 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.

Read the first chapter here!

Dude, doesn't that sound fantastic?

Well, it is. I've read it, and Nora will stay with you for a while. In fact, she's unforgettable. You can participate in an amazing giveaway and check out other awesomeness on Angie's blog.

Other Noteworthy Things:

Congrats, Angie! Here's to a successful launch week!

HA! OOh...this made me laugh. I NEW it was coming next month but not this week! My resolution for this week was to not buy any books. Looks like that's out the window. ;)
