  • About the Edition

    Jack Felter, a history teacher, returns home to bucolic Franklin Mills, Ohio, to care for his father, a retired pilot who suffers from dementia and is quickly losing his memory. Jack would love to forget about Franklin Mills, and about Sam, the girl he fell in love with, who ran off with his best friend, Tony. Except Tony has gone missing. Soon Jack is pulled into the search for Tony, but the only one who seems to know anything is Tony"s last patient, a paranoid boy named Cole. Jack must team up with Cole to follow Tony"s trail-and maybe save the world. Their journey will lead them to Manhattan and secret facilities buried under the Catskills, and eventually to a forgotten island in the Pacific-the final destination of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. When Jack learns the details about the program known as the Great Forgetting, he"s faced with the timeless question: Is it better to forget our greatest mistake or to remember, so it"s never repeated?
