When I walk into the living area. Tanner's standing by the front door. "Tanner? What are you doing?"
He looks up, his expression pained. "I knew there was no way they trusted us this much," he says slowly. "So I checked the door and windows. Locked. And my biometrics wouldn't open them, either."
My mouth dries. "That doesn't mean anything. The security's probably only keyed to members of the Underground. They don't have your biometrics, so how could they possibly be in the system?"
I stride to the door. Tanner moves aside without a word. Wrapping my hand around the door handle, I try to open it. Sure enough: locked.
My pulse speeds up. It's okay. Lots of people lock their doors at night. We may live within the compound walls, but theft still exists.
Yes, but how many people lock their doors on the inside?
Ignoring the voice, I press my fingertips on the glass plate. The machine beeps. ACCESS DENIED.
I position my eyes in front of the retina scan. ACCESS DENIED.
I stick my finger into the opening for a blood prick. ACCESS DENIED.
Denied, denied, denied.
I slump against the wall and turn to Tanner. And that's when I really know. There's no triumph in his eyes. For once, he gets no satisfaction from being right. "I thought they trusted me," I whisper.
"You were going to break Olivia out. They were right not to trust you."
I shake my head. I feel like someone's just burst my balloon of a heart. Tanner's not surprised we're locked in, and I get that. If we were going on logic alone, he'd be right. They shouldn't trust us.
But he doesn't understand that Zed and Brayden and I are part of the Underground. No, more than that. We were part of that tight-knit community that lived together in the wilderness.
We've been relying and trusting each other most of my life.
The fact that we're here -- where neither of us trusts the other -- is sad. I feel like I'm standing on the edge of a precipice, and one step in the wrong direction will send me rolling down a path I can't stop. Is this just the beginning? Is this the first step on a path that will eventually lead me to becoming Dresden's assistant? I swore that would never happen. But I never thought that Zed would find it necessary to lock me in, either. We are in such big trouble.

Logan’s not sure what the memory means, but soon enough, he learns that his old friend Callie is in trouble. She’s received an atypical memory, one where she commits a crime in the future. According to the law, she must be imprisoned, even though she's done nothing wrong. Now, Logan must decide if he'll give up his future as a gold-star swimmer and rescue the literal girl of his dreams. All he'll have to do is defy Fate.
I received an eARC copy from the publisher via Net Galley, in exchange with an honest review.
The thing about Novellas is that, if they are well written, they will leave you craving for "at least one more page".
Going into Before Tomorrow, I knew that it was a novella. However, I was still really disappointed when I finished the book. I was craving for more.
Seeing some of the events from Logan's point of view added a lot to the story. To me, this novella makes the 1st book even better.

The sequel to the sci-fi hit Forget Tomorrow is a twisting, turning roller-coaster ride—the perfect sci-fi futuristic read.
Seventeen-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 after they kidnapped and experimented on her as a child, cooperating with the scientists is the last thing Jessa would do.
But when she discovers the past isn't what she assumed, Jessa must join forces with budding scientist Tanner Callahan to rectify a fatal mistake made ten years ago. She'll do anything to change her past -- even if it means aligning herself with the enemy she swore to defeat.
I received an e-Arc of Remember Yesterday from the publisher via NETGalley, in exchange with an honest review.
A spellbinding sequel that will leave you begging for more with every chapter you consume
I liked reading Forget Tomorrow, but I LOVED Remember Yesterday !!!! Once I finished the 1st 20% of the book, each chapter ended with me yelling "What !" & "OMG! "
Not only does the plot thickens, but also the way how everything lines up by the end of the book is incredible. Anything that seemed vague by the end of book one played an important role in the events that take place in book 2.
The romance in this book was very refreshing. The author switched how the typical girl likes boy,boy likes girl is represented in YA Literature.
Every single character in this book has a great role to play, a chance to become more mature, a hard decision to take, and a memory to fulfill or let go off. All of that was shown perfectly . I really enjoyed reading it from Jessa's perspective
Here are some of my favorite Quotes:
1) These people have lost their minds to a riot. We have no idea what they'll do, or not do !
2) These are the casualties of War .
3) Time Passes. You take one breath, and then the next. The moment disappears and the next one arrives,and you're still here. There's an Honor in that. Simply enduring.
I honestly can't wait for book 3. I am hungover over this amazing book !!! Pintip Dunn is killing it with this kick ass sequel. I can't wait to see how many awards this book is going to collect.
