There are so many books releasing lately that sound so good. I really need extra hours in a day or a few extra days to read every week. One of these books is Forget This Ever Happened. Today I’m participating on the book tour hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours to tell you about this one. Keep on reading if you also want to find out more about the giveaway during this tour (US Only).
Forget This Ever Happened by Cassandra Rose Clarke
Genre: Young Adult Sci-Fi Mystery
Publishing Date: October 6, 2020
Sometimes there’s a town called Indianola.
And sometimes there isn’t.
Summer, 1993. Claire has been dumped in rural Indianola, Texas, to spend her whole vacation taking care of mean, sickly Grammy. There’s nothing too remarkable about Indianola: it’s run-down, shabby, and stifling hot, a pin-dot on the Gulf Coast.
Well, there is one remarkable thing, she discovers. Something otherworldly.
But if you leave Indianola, you forget about it… and if you stay, you have to live with it every day.
Because there’s a confluence of energies at Indianola, a fissure in time and space, a gap in reality. Nothing is as it seems. And unless Claire can figure out this town–the talkative lizards under the pecan trees; the honey-sweet but terrifying girl next door; the cute daughter of a powerful family, who would answer Claire’s questions if she had any answers; the pervasive sense of history coming unspooled, like a video tape–she might never leave.
Featuring a mindbending plot, heartfelt queer romance, brilliant writing, and intricate worldbuilding, Forget This Ever Happened is a lush and thrilling genre-bender perfect for the Black Mirror generation.
Today I’m only promoting Forget This Ever Happened, but I’ve seen a lot of amazing reviews from bloggers and bookstagrammers also on this tour. If you want to check out their posts, click here for the full schedule.
