It can happen in a flash. One minute she’s kissing her boyfriend, the next she’s lost in the woods. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Cox is losing time. It started out small… forgetting a drive home or a conversation with a friend. But her blackouts are getting worse, more difficult to disguise as forgetfulness.
When Ellie goes missing for three days, waking up in the apartment of a mysterious guy—a guy who is definitely not her boyfriend, her life starts to spiral out of control. Perched on the edge of insanity, with horrific memories of her childhood leaking in, Ellie struggles to put together the pieces of what she’s lost—starting with the name haunting her, Gwen. Heartbreakingly beautiful, this poignant story follows one girl’s harrowing journey to finding out who she really is.
What a captivating read! I took my time for this one. It started kind of slow, but this story really grew on me, and I really enjoyed it.
I really liked how the story was builtliving things through Ellie’s eyes, and wonderug wha was wrong with her, just like she did herself.
I thought while reading, that the characters were accurate (though my teenage years are far behind now).
What happened, and it was quite a surprise t me, was that I also liked Gwen and Griffin a lot, maybe even more than Ellie and Shane. There was not really a good and a wrong character, but two complex ones.
I’m just a little disappointed though that things didn’t go any further between Ellie and Lexi. I kind of felt like that part of the story was left undone.
To sum things up : an intriguing story with great characters!
