New York, NY (March 24, 2014)—Reliance Entertainment / Kintop Pictures has acquired the rights to UNREMEMBERED, the first in a trilogy by Jessica Brody published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux Books for Young Readers, animprint of the Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group.

UNREMEMBERED, which debuted last March, opens to 16-year-old Seraphina who finds herself floating in the Pacific ocean, following a plane crash, with no memory of her past or present. The sole survivor of the devastating crash, she swiftly becomes the focus of headlines across the globe.

The Unremembered Trilogy is set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten. The second book in the series, UNFORGOTTEN, is available now with the third and final book in the trilogy to follow in February 2015.
