Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Flora Banks has no short-term memory. Her mind resets itself several times a day and has since the age of 10, when the tumor that was removed from Flora's brain took with it her ability to make new memories. That is, until she kisses Drake, her best friend's boyfriend, the night before he leaves town. Miraculously, this one memory breaks through Flora's fractured mind and sticks. Flora is convinced that Drake is responsible for restoring her memory and making her whole again. So when an encouraging email from Drake suggests she meet him on the other side of the world - in Svalbard, Norway - Flora knows with certainty that this is the first step toward reclaiming her life.

But will following Drake be the key to unlocking Flora's memory? Or will the journey reveal that nothing is quite as it seems?

Already a best-selling debut in the UK, this unforgettable novel is Memento meets E. Lockhart's We Were Liars and will have you racing through the story to unravel the truth.

Critic Reviews

"Flora's situation may be singular, but her desire for autonomy should speak loudly to teens in the midst of their own journeys into adulthood." (Publishers Weekly)
"An icily atmospheric story...captivating...[a] pacy page-turner that packs a significant emotional punch." (The Guardian)

This book was light and heavy. It touches you in such a way you can’t help but keep it in your mind. Very honest and raw and heartbreaking in all the best ways. I’m so glad I purchased this and will listen again

Wonderful story! Well executed.

I would like to know more about anterograde amnesia. Flora is to this condition as Robin Williams is to aliens! She is endearing, if sometimes annoying but real. Many humanistic messages. Lovely as Emily Barr always is.
