The Once Upon a Book Club Young Adult Box theme for June 2021 is YOU MAY SAY I’M A DREAMER!
Can you love someone you don’t remember?
After the Last War destroyed most of the world, survivors form a new society in four self-sustaining cities in the Mojave Desert. In the utopia of the Four Cities, inspired by the lyrics of “Imagine” and Buddhist philosophy, everything is carefully planned and controlled: the seasons, the weather—and the residents. To prevent mankind from destroying each other again, its citizens undergo a memory wipe every four years in a process called tabula rasa, a blank slate, to remove learned prejudices. With each new cycle, they begin again with new names, jobs, homes, and lives. No memories. No attachments. No wars.
A scientist who shuns love, embraces tabula rasa and the excitement of unknown futures. Walling herself off from emotional attachments, she only sees relationships as pointless and avoids deep connections. After meeting a handsome free-spirited writer who believes his dreams of a past lover are memories, her world is turned upside down. Obsessed with finding the Dreamers, a secret organization thought to have a way to recover memories, he draws her down a dangerous path toward the past. With little time left before the next tabula rasa, they begin a bittersweet romance, navigating love in a world where names, lives, and moments are systematically destroyed.
Thought-provoking and emotionally resonant, this is a novel that will make you consider the haunting reality of love and loss, and the indelible marks they leave behind.
A fast-paced, well-written, smart and sexy novel that has the intelligence and heartbreak of love in a surveillance state as many beloved classics.
A novel outside the norm of our OUABC picks, but one that greatly impacted us, this is a novel that we cannot wait to bring to life through some of our most beautiful and moving gifts of the year.
On sale now through June 14th (or until we sell out), this box will not be one to miss! This box will ship at the end of June.
