DESCRIPTION:

She has everything she's ever wanted. But not her memory...

When Chloe fell asleep in study hall, it was the middle of May. When she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can't remember the last six months of her life. 

Before, she'd been a mediocre student. Now, she's on track for valedictorian and being recruited by Ivy League schools. Before, she never had a chance with super jock Blake. Now he's her boyfriend. Before, she and Maggie were inseparable. Now her best friend won't speak to her.

What happened to her? Remembering the truth could be more dangerous than she knows...


MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

Man....oh man....oh man.....  This was such a great book.  It messed with my head and made me crazy, in all the right ways :).

Chloe fell asleep in school one day and when she wakes up six months has gone by.  She has  the boyfriend she has always dreamed of having, she all of the sudden is at the top of her class, has new friends.  She seems to have it all.  There is something missing though.  All of the sudden she isn't best friends with her life long friend Maggie, and she is having weird lapses in memory.

Chloe spends time with her new (well new to her memory) boyfriend Blake, but doesn't feel like it's right.  Everything seems to be off.  Chloe keeps having dreams and glimpses of memories back and none of them seem to coincide with what is going on in her life.  

Chloe is trying to maker her parents understand there is something more going on than just memories being gone.  She's seeing a counselor, and making things up because she doesn't want everyone to think she has gone crazy.

She runs into Adam, the local bad boy, and when he touches Chloe, a memory comes to her.  That is what starts Chloe's journey to find out what is going on.

I cannot imagine loosing my memories.  I already don't' have a fantastic memory.  I can look at pictures though and remember where we were, and even remember the feelings that went along with the day.  Chloe couldn't even do that with anything involving the last six months.

She is determined to make up with Maggie, or at least find out what happened between them.  There really is so much going on in this book.  It is so fantastic.  It was so exciting.  It made my head spin and gasp a few time :).  

In Chloe's search to find out what is going on with her, she realizes there is something much more disturbing going on.  It's a wonderfully spun web of lies and deceit.  Get ready for a page turning, bumpy, intense, at some times scary, emotionally charged ride.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Natalie Richards
pic and bio taken from amazon.com

Natalie D. Richards won her first writing competition in the second grade with her short story about Barbara Frances Bizzlefishes (who wouldn't dare do the dishes.) She later misplaced her writing dreams in a maze of cubicles and general office drudgery. Natalie never forgot about Barbara or those dishes, and eventually she found her way back to storytelling, following the genre of her heart, teen fiction. When she's not writing or shopping her manuscripts, you can probably find her wading through the towers of dog-eared paperbacks that have taken over her bedroom. Natalie lives in Ohio with her amazing husband and their three children, who inspire her every day to stick with her dreams.
