Expectations vs. Reality: Unremembered

Expectations vs. Reality is a feature here inspired by Small Review that will compare my expectations from a book cover before seeing the summary with the summary itself.

This week I'm looking at Unremembered by Jessica Brody.


This cover is so pretty! The blurry face and of course the title make me think this is a book about amnesia. Perhaps the protagonist, a teenage girl, underwent some sort of accident and emerged from it with her memories missing, which makes sense with the subtitle at the top. "A love unchanged" definitely implies there's some sort of romantic angle going on.


Here's what Goodreads has to say:
When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?
Okay, let's just take a moment to contemplate how utterly AWESOME this summary sounds. I suppose I was fairly close with the whole wiped memory aspect.

What do you think of this book? What were your expectations when you saw the cover?
