When Chloe falls asleep in study hall, it is 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 is 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 Chloe? Remembering the truth could be more dangerous than she knows.…

Kept me very interested. Perhaps could be "just the kind of book" I like? But I truly enjoyed this book. Not a cozy mystery like I usually read but still a mystery!! Maybe I was ready for something else but it was hard to not just sit and listen (when I didn't have time)
I can't really tell you anything about this book without giving away something but I can say the narrator did a really bang up job and that certainly helps make a more enjoyable read and I thought the book was written well.... She uses the verbiage "I say", instead of "I said" and somehow that seemed okay, even though she used it quite a bit, not overly and it seemed to work.
I'd give this one a try!! I'm looking for another just like it but this author has ONLY this 1 book out that I was able to find. Although, I did find another 3 book series by Jessica Brody, the 1st called, "Unremembered" that I'm going to try... sounds kinda good! (I love it when others mention good books they've read that are similar to a good book they've read)
Okay, that's it!! I liked this book quite well and would recommend it to you! Enjoy!!
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.
This was the quest of a girl who woke up and discovered it was six months after she thought it was. She is trying to regain her memories, not let on how much she has forgotten, and figure out the danger those memories hold . Worth a read.
This book was filled with so many surprises. I had a physical copy of the book while I was listening to the narrator. The narrator was great, she really helped me visualize what was going on by how she described everything with just the right conviction. I really hope this book would be made into a movie I know many people would watch it. A little biased but I would watch it :) for anyone who likes mystery books I definitely recommend. Have fun & enjoy the story of six months later.
I was intrigued by the concept of this book: a girl trying to figure out why she's missing six months of her life. But the weak and repetitive dialog (and internal monologs) wore me down. I struggled to finish this book and actually abandoned it for a few days.
The one-dimensional, male characters add little to the story. The villain appears suddenly at the end, apparently just so that he can partially explain himself. We're left to speculate on the roles and activities of his fellow plotters, following an unsatisfying end of the novel.
The narration by Emily Woo Zeller is well-done.
