Synopsis from Goodreads

We all want to be remembered. Charlotte's destiny is to be forgotten.

Charlotte's best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she's cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what's really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.

But Charlotte never wanted this responsibility. What she wants is to help her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend's arms forever. But as the Need grows stronger, it begins to take a dangerous toll on Charlotte. And who she was, is, and will become—her mark on this earth, her very existence—is in jeopardy of disappearing completely.

Charlotte will be forced to choose: Should she embrace her fate as a Forgotten, a fate that promises to rip her from the lives of those she loves forever? Or is she willing to fight against her destiny—no matter how dark the consequences?

My Thoughts

The idea behind this book, the idea of being forgotten, is something I'm sure everyone thinks about from time to time. Maybe you have had a dream where your family or friends don't remember who you are. That's a nightmare right there. A nightmare that Charlotte is living. I was completely wrapped up in her story. Imagine feeling extreme pain if you don't fulfill the urge to help someone. What a unique idea, and it was exicuted perfectly.

Charlotte was a fantastic main character. She was confused and frustrated that she didn't understand what was happening to her. Once she discovers what is happening to her she fights to stay, fights to be remembered. Harlin (that has been one of my favorite names for years) is swooooon worthy. Her boyfriend is so sweet. I wanted to be the one wrapped up in his arms. I felt so bad for him and was begging Charlotte to just tell him about the Need already!

The writing is wonderful. Easy to read and holds your attention through the whole book. I couldn't wait to begin each and every chapter. Suzanne did a wonderful job on this book. I cannot wait for the second one!
