The Unhappening of Genesis Lee By Shallee McArthur
What would it feel like to never forget? Or to have a memory stolen?

Seventeen-year-old Genesis Lee has never forgotten anything. As one of the Mementi—a small group of genetically enhanced humans—Gena remembers everything with the help of her Link bracelets, which preserve them perfectly. But Links can be stolen, and six people have already lost their lives to a memory thief, including Gena’s best friend.

Anyone could be next. That’s why Gena is less than pleased to meet a strange but charming boy named Kalan who claims not only that they have met before, but also that Gena knows who the thief is.

The problem is that Gena doesn’t remember Kalan, she doesn’t remember seeing the thief, and she doesn’t know why she’s forgetting things—or how much else she might forget. As growing tensions between Mementi and ordinary humans drive the city of Havendale into chaos, Gena and Kalan team up to search for the thief. And as Gena loses more memories, they realize they have to solve the mystery fast…because Gena’s life is unhappening around her.

"For anyone fascinated with thoughts of omniscience and total social connection—and who isn't?—McArthur's debut suggests fascinating and chilling possibilities." —Kirkus Reviews

"Equal parts dark and delightful, McArthur's stunning debut takes an awesome science fiction premise and follows it deep into the maze of the human mind. I loved it so much I was jealous." —Dan Wells, author the Partials series

"A thrilling read from beginning to end, this stunning debut had me wishing I could record my memories to keep them safe! I was desperate to discover the thief while at the same time hoping the story would never end." —Elana Johnson, author of the Posession trilogy
