Before Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn
Release date: October 31st, 2016
Publisher: Entangled: Teen
Genre: Young adult, sci-fi
In a world where all seventeen-year-olds receive a memory from their future selves, Logan Russell’s vision is exactly as he expects—and exactly not. He sees himself achieving his greatest wish of becoming a gold-star swimmer, but strangely enough, the vision also shows him locking eyes with a girl from his past, Callie Stone, and experiencing an overwhelming sense of love and belonging.
Logan’s not sure what the memory means, but soon enough, he learns that his old friend Callie is in trouble. She’s received an atypical memory, one where she commits a crime in the future. According to the law, she must be imprisoned, even though she’s done nothing wrong. Now, Logan must decide if he’ll give up his future as a gold-star swimmer and rescue the literal girl of his dreams. All he’ll have to do is defy Fate.
I am beyond happy that I received an advanced copy of Before Tomorrow! I absolutely loved the two full-length novels in the series, Forget Tomorrow and Remember Yesterday, and this novella was the perfect companion.
Before Tomorrow is a prequel/alternate narration of Forget Tomorrow and focuses on one of my favourite characters, Logan. It’s hard not to fall head over heels for Logan in the series and in this story I just fell in love with him even more. I didn’t think that was even possible! It tells us about the day he received his own future memory and the events that led to him reuniting with Callie, his love interest and the main protagonist of Forget Tomorrow. It was interesting to step inside his head and it also provided the reader with more insight into why he was willing to drop everything to help Callie reach safety.
The only thing I can complain about is the length. I wanted more! It was far too short, but then again that’s the problem I have without most novellas. You just get into the action and boom! It’s all over.
It’s really difficult to write about this story without giving too much of the series away. So, without spoiling anything, I just want to say that it was an enjoyable read and a wonderful addition to the Forget Tomorrow series.
