Persistence of Memoryby Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Synopses & Reviews
Sixteen-year-old Erin Misrahe just wants to be like everyone else in her new school. But Erin has more to worry about than passing AP Chemistry or making friends. In times of stress, she has always been overcome by her alter ego, Shevaun, whose violent behavior wreaks havoc on those around her. Erin can never remember anything about these episodes, and she's grateful to have been spared them for a while.
But when a protective friend comes back into Erin's life, he insists that Shevaun is a vampire who actually exists apart from Erin. Shevaun has dangerous allies, like the handsome witch Adjila — and they're determined to sever Shevaun's connection to Erin once and for all.
"Atwater-Rhodes will not disappoint her many fans with this cleverly crafted story of a collision between the fantasy world and the known world." KLIATT
"[T]his fast-paced narrative will be a quick read for devotees of the genre." Kirkus Reviews
Diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child, sixteen-year-old Erin has spent half of her life in therapy and on drugs, but now must face the possibility of weird things in the real world, including shapeshifting friends and her "alter," a centuries-old vampire.
