Would you change the past to protect your future?

Sixteen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries, if only she’d let TechRA study her. But ten years ago, the scientists kidnapped and experimented on her, leading to severe ramifications for her sister, Callie. She’d much rather break into their labs and sabotage their research—starting with Tanner Callahan, budding scientist and the boy she loathes most at school.

The past isn’t what she assumed, though—and neither is Tanner. He’s not the arrogant jerk she thought he was. And his research opens the door to the possibility that Jessa can rectify a fatal mistake made a decade earlier. She’ll do anything to change the past and save her sister—even if it means teaming up with the enemy she swore to defeat.

I loved Pintip’s debut Forget Tomorrow, it was a fast paced dystopian full of twists and turns and I found myself flying through the pages. Remember Yesterday is set ten years after the events of Forget Tomorrow and actually focuses on Callie’s younger sister Jessa. I was a little hesitant because I loved Callie as a main character but my fears were for naught because I actually ended up enjoying Jessa’s story just as much if not more.

Jessa has struggled for the past ten years, she’s forever haunted that Callie sacrificed her life so she could live. Callie’s memory is famous; she will forever be the girl who stopped future memory and the awful consequences that came with them. However Jessa is unable to live her life without her sister and instead focuses everything on taking revenge no matter how big or small on the scientist’s who ruined her life.

Jessa was a fantastic main character and I was totally able to relate to her loss and grief. During the events after Callie’s death, I forgot just how young Jessa was at the time and it really put everything in perspective, Jessa’s strength of character was really moving and inspiring. Also her relationship with my beau Logan was so adorable <3

Pintip added the wonderful element of time-travel, which really turned the plot on its head, which meant that my head was nearly exploding with all the possibilities of what could happen. Another thrilling part of the book was the romance. Now I was major shipper of Callie and Logan but Jessa and Tanner have managed to become my favourite. Tanner is basically Jessa’s worst nightmare; he’s a scientist and one that’s directly involved in working with future memory and the very people who took Callie from her. Their relationship had all the hatred, heat and angst I live for so I honestly couldn’t read their scenes fast enough.

Overall Remember Yesterday was a perfectly paced, action-packed follow up. Pintip has again worked her magic when it comes to plot twists that will leave you more than a little wounded and I am more than ready and a little worried for book three and to see how this explosive series will end.
