Review Copy: From author in exchange for honest review
What really grabbed me to read this was in fact the main characters name, which is Sia. I haven't heard that name before until now. It's a very pretty name. But it also stands out among everyone else in the book.
The concept that someone can lose their memory after something traumatic happens to oneself is a scary thought. This is exactly what happens to Sia after being hit by a car.
What was interesting about this book was that she lives on the street for the first week. There was no thought process of trying to find parents or any family of sort.
Then comes the cliched parts. Sia comes from a high class family and she's the bitchiest girl in her school. Needless to say her eyes get opened to her family financial situation and she becomes the outcast after this incident. Then comes her boyfriend at the start of the book. He's the typical class jerk, who trips the "losers" of the school. If you can see where I'm going with this, yes she does break up with him and befriends the "losers".
While being homeless a lady by the name of Carol takes her under her wing. She becomes a mentor of sort to Sia and they both make incredible changes throughout the books thanks to each other.
Overall, if you're looking for a break after some intense books, then I'd check this one out. Also, I think you're all curious to know whether or not Sia gets her memory back.
