    "As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I'm still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me...." Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story. Welcome to Christine's life.

    Story

    I liked the concept of the book and would have thought it truly original had I not seen "Memento" several years ago. Losing one's memory is an interesting plot device and I thought this one fairly well done. SPOILER ALERT: I thought the ending was too "happily ever after" and did not buy the fact that family and friends weren't more engaged in the protagonist's life or at least status. The first half of the book is fairly slow, but the second half did build momentum and kept me engaged.
