Review #93: Memento Nora by Angi Smibert

Hello once again everyone! This review will not be a positive one, sadly. 

Yet another book getting the Goodreads description treatment: 

In the future, it doesn't pay to remember.

In Nora's world you don't have to put up with nightmares. Nora goes with her mother to TFC--a Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic. There, she can describe her horrible memory and take the pill that will erase it. But at TFC, a chance encounter with a mysterious guy changes Nora's life. She doesn't take the pill. And when Nora learns the memory her mother has chosen to forget, she realizes that someone needs to remember. With newfound friends Micah and Winter, Nora makes a comic book of their memories called Memento. It's an instant hit, but it sets off a dangerous chain of events. Will Nora, Micah, and Winter be forced to take the Big Pill that will erase their memories forever?

This book just plain sucked. What's even worse, and I hate to seem whiny about money, is that it was expensive for a NOOKbook. That just makes this book not worth the price I paid. Moving on! The story in concept was so cool. In the end, another one with craptacular prose. It felt just so stereotypical and cartoony. You could not connect with any of the characters at all. 
Well, that ends yet another CR list. Will write up the next one as soon as this is posted. See y'all soon!

Until next time, viva la literature!
