How do you know where to go when you don’t remember where you came from?
Kyla’s memory has been erased,
her personality wiped blank,
her memories lost for ever.
Or so she thought.
Kyla shouldn’t be able to remember anything. But she can – and she’s beginning to realise that there are a lot of dark secrets locked away in her memories. When a mysterious man from her past comes back into her life, she thinks she’s on her way to finding the truth. But the more she learns about her history, the more confusing her future becomes…
More and more of Kyla’s memories are coming back to her and the more she discovers the more she wants to know. Luckily for her someone she recognises has just started teach at her school, however everything about him although reminds her of her past also feels dangerous.
To make things worse things at home aren’t happy. She doesn’t know who she can trust and she knows there are still things she doesn’t understand. With someone from her past in her life again she is able to begin to piece together some of her past. But with this she also discovers there are other questions to ask, about why exactly she can’t remember four years of her life, and who is the man in her dreams, and for that she has to be part of both sides of the law.
I feel like we really get to understand a lot more about the characters in this book, not just Kayla but also her new parents and her doctor. Kyla, although beginning to get her some of her memories back, is still making new decisions about the person she wants to be now and this may not be the girl she remember she was before. For me there is a lot of important moral questions thought about in the story. The plot was also interesting and pulled the story along nicely which I enjoyed although some of it was predictable, but for me it was Kyla’s discoveries about herself and being able to choose the person she wants to be that was really interesting.
I also enjoyed her interactions with the other characters in the book, particularly with her doctor. She is supposed to be the one asking questions but some how Kyla ends up getting more answers each week. Kyla also finally begins to understand her mum a lot more and her suspicions about her dad continue to grow. Her relationship with Nico is particularly interesting because you know there is something not right about it and it is when he introduces her to someone else from her past that will open up to her about her past that her views really begin to change.
I was really excited about this book being released and it has lived up to expectation but in a different way. I enjoyed the plot and there was a nice amount of action in it but for me I want to know what is going to happen to all of our character next.
