“The mouse pulls and tugs, but he can’t get his leg loose. As the cage empties, his movements become more frantic, as if he realizes this is his last chance to escape.” Pintip Dunham offers the perfect metaphor for the human condition when we aren’t given the freedom to be ourselves. We will self-harm until we are either free or dead, just like Jessa’s mouse.

Today I’m reviewing Remember Yesterday by Pintip Dunham. There are a handful of authors who aren’t Indie that I watch, eagerly awaiting their next release, Pintip Dunham is one of them. I’ve reviewed her books before, Forget Tomorrow and Before Tomorrow, which you can read by clicking on the titles.
She’s done it again. Knocked it out of the park this time.
Remember Yesterday is the second in the series, with Before Tomorrow being a fill in novella that offers you a separate point of view. I was impressed with Forget Tomorrow, Remember Yesterday left me slack-jawed and speechless when I finished it. I bow before her talent and the artful story she wove together and the plot twists she carefully braided in. I only wish I could return and read it again and again.
Remember Yesterday is set in a dystopian future where your future depends on the memory your future self has sent you. In Before Tomorrow, Callie Stone dealt them a severe blow by severing the connection between herself and her sister, a vital link the government scientists need in order to unlock the key to future memory and be sure it is invented. Now it’s ten years later and Callie’s younger sister is working to hamstring the scientists that experimented on her.
When she learns that the past isn’t what she thought it was she’ll be set on a path of discovery and adventure that will lead her places she couldn’t have imagined in her wildest dreams. She’ll discover that everything she thought she knew about the people around her is wrong and it will make her question her loyalty, resulting in a decision she swore would never happen.
The twists and turns of Remember Yesterday will have you jumping out of your seat, anticipating the next one and being surprised at every one. I can’t recommend this book enough. It’s strong enough to stand on it’s own but I highly recommend reading Forget Tomorrow first as a good foundation for the world and what Jessa is facing.
Remember Yesterday is available at Amazon as a kindle, $7.99, a paperback, $9.99 and a hardcover, $10.75. Grab a copy for the weekend and prepare to be delighted.
