Blurb Description: 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 memories 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. Which is why Gena is less than pleased to meet a strange but charming boy named Kalan who claims that they’ve not only met, but that Gena knows who the thief is.

The problem is, 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.

My memory skills are terrible. Like, really. I'm not talking about what I ate for dinner yesterday, but more like why I acted like I did, and why I made the decisions that I did- it's like I have no recollection of it. Like, none. Even by childhood, is just a blur, with only a few memories sharp.

Which is why I find I felt the NEED to read The UnHappening of Genesis Lee- because how cool would it be to never forget anything, ever- because everything is stored, right there, for you to access, whenever and wherever you may want to!

Pretty Amazing, Right?

I Absolutely LOVED the book- the entirely new world, filled with all the tiny details- about the Mementi and the Populace, and the tension between them, how people just don't touch each other, because why would you want to share all your secrets with a single touch- and SO much more, that made the book so easy to slip into- so SO realistic!

I absolutely LOVED Genesis (Gena)- mostly due to the way we got to know her. Not as someone that is just plain mean or dumb, nor too courageous, but as someone normal. Like, really! With her friends and their boyfriend issues, how she guards herself and her memories, and even her fear. It was all SO real- and BRILLIANT!

I have nothing more to say, about the actual story line, but it should suffice to say that:

My Verdict:

This book is DEFINITELY worth a read!
