Publisher's Summary

How do you know who to trust when you can't even trust yourself?

I look at my hands. One of them says, 'Flora be brave'.

Flora has anterograde amnesia. She can't remember anything day to day: the joke her friend made, the instructions her parents gave her, how old she is.

Then she kisses someone she shouldn't, and the next day she remembers it. It's the first time she's remembered anything since she was 10. But the boy is gone. She thinks he's moved to the Arctic. Will following him be the key to unlocking her memory? Whom can she trust?

The One Memory of Flora Banks is the unforgettable young adult audiobook of 2017.

love this story

oh what a beautiful, beautiful story. it must have been so difficult to writte; staying belevably inside Flora's head so that we could experience her world with her. I hope the author loves this work too. I hope it holds a special place. I will be back here again in the future to experience Flora's world again

Thought provoking, with gentle storyline tweaks which made me think more than I expected!

Loved it's gentle comment on what makes a life worth living. This is one of those books which worm into your head and makes you ponder what makes you you. Highly recommended. I found the way the narrator speaks in the first chapter a little irritating but this will change (and the changes make sense with the story line :-)

Completed within a couple of days

I was unsure once I listened to the first page or two but quickly loved it. Heart breaking, sadness, friendship, great story

Tedious In the extreme

After reading the rave reviews I tried to persevere with this book I really did but it was just sooooo boring. I listened to seven mind numbingly boring and repetitive chapters and I couldn't bear another second. Maybe I didn't listen for long enough, and maybe it would have improved, but I struggled so badly to get into it, that I had a feeling of dread whenever I thought about listening to any more of it. Why anyone thought it was tolerable, let alone good, defies me. Definitely a book for teenagers, and I am most certainly not a teenager. Hated the narration, hated the story, hated it all. Sorry Emily but this was a big fat no from me.
