Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

So, I’m not going to lie, when this book was making its rounds as an ARC I totally judged it by its cover. Which you should never do! But I saw a ballerina on the US cover and immediately thought, “No thanks, I’ll pass.” The more I heard about it though, the more I became interested. It sounds good and has excellent ratings on Goodreads, so I need it. I really enjoy memory loss books, especially if they are written well. So I now I can’t wait to get my hands on this!

Have you read this book yet? What are your thoughts on it?


  1. This does indeed sound good! (And the US cover isn't nearly as good as the other covers! I just looked at them on Goodreads.)
