From the author of Elsewhere comes an extraordinary story of identity, memory loss and self-discovery. Naomiâs voyage of finding out just who she really is and what defines her, as a person, is one many a teenager goes through. As we get to know Naomi and her life, we are allowed to be completely involved, cheering her on, booing the bad decisions, and distressing over all her indecisiveness and learning from it. Its well written teenage fiction and the title is sure to grab the attention of teenagers everywhere.

Synopsis

Memoirs Of A Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin

When Naomi tries to piece back the fragments of the last three and a half years of her life, she discovers a lot. She has a boyfriend but can't remember him, her mother and father are divorced, and she has forgotten that she is supposed to hate her mother. She also has a group of friends which simply doesn't seem that attractive any more and, despite having meticulously kept a diary, she only mentioned what she ate every day in it! But it's not all bad, because when a girl loses three and a half years she gets a chance to reinvent herself. After all, who is to say that everything has to be the same?

Reviews

This unusual love story will be well received by teens intrigued by the concept. Kirkus Reviews

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
