Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Every 12 years, the orderly city of Canaan undergoes the chaotic, bloody time known as the Forgetting. During these brief hours, people's memories are erased. If it were not for the books in which inhabitants are required by law to record the events of their lives, they would have no way of knowing what happened before the Forgetting, or even of knowing their names or who their families are. Nadia is different. She remembers. The next Forgetting is a few weeks away. The teen is determined to keep her family together and away from the ensuing anarchy, but how? As Nadia works to this end, she comes up with more questions than answers. Why is the supposedly benevolent head of the Council, Janis, having some people's houses ransacked? What happens when people write lies in their books, or their books are stolen? The glassblower's handsome son, Gray, says he wants to help Nadia, but can she trust him? When Nadia searches for the truth, it is more shocking than anything she could have imagined. This fantasy is a marvelous achievement. Cameron creates a world filled with chilling dystopian constructs while maintaining a sense that it is as solid and convincing as our own. Each scene plays out in cinematic clarity—from the pristine walls that encircle the city to the rising of the three moons, from the perpetually anguished face of Nadia's mother, who remembers pain but no facts, to the labyrinthine underground lair where Nadia discovers the truth. VERDICT This excellent work belongs in every collection.—Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC

Review

Praise for The Forgetting:An Autumn 2016 Kids' Indie Next List selection* "Effective worldbuilding and strong characterization . . . A well-crafted fable for our time." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review* "This fantasy is a marvelous achievement." -- School Library Journal, starred review"[An] absorbing adventure." -- Publishers Weekly"The Forgetting is Sharon Cameron's fourth young adult novel, and she's grown adept at blurring the lines between fantasy, dystopian and science-fiction genres. Cameron reminds us, through Nadia's documented memories, that we must learn to appreciate the truth as much as question it, exploring the morality tucked within the fallacy of memory." -- Bookpage, Top PickPraise for Rook:A YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selectionAn Indiebound Indie Next Top Ten selectionWinner of the Parents' Choice Gold Award "The suspense kicks right off in this action-packed tale, quickly wrapping readers up in the drama." -- Romantic Times"Full of derring-do and double crosses, this romantic adventure is thoroughly engrossing." -- Kirkus Reviews"Cameron crafts a brilliant homage to The Scarlet Pimpernel yet also manages to make her telling unique, particularly in... the many twists, turns, betrayals, and lucky breaks [that] will keep readers breathless until the very end." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"Rook is sure to be a read all readers will remember." -- Portland Book ReviewPraise for The Dark Unwinding:A YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selectionWinner of the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award "Utterly original, romantic, and spellbindingly imaginative." -- USA Today"Haunting thrills unfurl..." -- Entertainment Weekly"Gripping twists, rich language, and an evocative landscape." -- Publishers Weekly"[A] singularly polished piece." -- The Horn Book"A strikingly original, twisty gothic tale that holds surprises around every dark corner." --Judy Blundell, author of What I Saw and How I LiedPraise for A Spark Unseen:"Gripping... [an] absorbing, intelligent adventure." -- Kirkus Reviews
