Book Summary:

When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one. Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle.

This is a fun, sweet, fairy-tale of a book!  It’s a tale of romance, redemption, and about learning what really matters in life.

Stories about amnesia have always intrigued me and this was no exception.  The time that she spends homeless seems like it should be the worst part of the tale, but coming back home is actually worse in many ways.  I looked forward to learning how Sia would deal with the obstacles she was facing.

Mr. Grayson also wrote a screenplay of this story.  It would make a great movie. I hope Josh Grayson writes more YA novels because I am looking forward to reading more!
