The Forgetting Curve
by Angie Smibert
Published by Marshall Cavendish
Available: April 2012
Aiden Nomura likes to open doors—especially using his skills as a hacker—to see what’s hidden inside. He believes everything is part of a greater system: the universe. The universe shows him the doors, and he keeps pulling until one cracks open. Aiden exposes the flaw, and the universe—or someone else—will fix it. It’s like a game.
Until it isn’t.
When a TFC opens in Bern, Switzerland, where Aiden is attending boarding school, he knows things are changing. Shortly after, bombs go off within quiet, safe Bern. Then Aiden learns that his cousin Winter, back in the States, has had a mental breakdown. He returns to the US immediately.
But when he arrives home in Hamilton, Winter’s mental state isn’t the only thing that’s different. The city is becoming even stricter, and an underground movement is growing.
Along with Winter’s friend, Velvet, Aiden slowly cracks open doors in this new world. But behind those doors are things Aiden doesn’t want to see—things about his society, his city, even his own family. And this time Aiden may be the only one who can fix things . . . before someone else gets hurt. (from Author's website)
Angie Smibert just released this info on her website today. Yes, I have been checking it regularly. I am a fan of her debut novel Memento Nora and the follow-up sounds just a good. It sound like a lot of new characters are introduced in the novel and I am anxious to see how it all plays out.
If you haven't read Memento Nora yet, you should and then wait, along with me for The Forgetting Curve.
