Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss.

She wouldnt have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldnt have hit her head on the steps.

She wouldnt have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia.

She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place.

She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her “Chief.” Shed get all his inside jokes, and maybe he wouldnt be so frustrated with her for forgetting things she cant possibly remember.

Shed know about her moms new family.

Shed know about her dads fiancée.

She wouldnt have to spend her junior year relearning all the French she supposedly knew already.

She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her.

She wouldnt have wanted to kiss him back.

But Naomi picked heads.

 
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

If Naomi had picked tails instead of heads, she wouldn't have hit her head on the way to get the yearbook camera and wouldn't have awakened in an ambulance with amnesia. Zevin crafts an imaginative work about love and second chances, in this ALA Best Book for Young Adults.

Synopsis:

Sometimes, a girl needs to lose.

Synopsis:

A fiercely gripping narrative as only Elizabeth Scott can write!

Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends, and a crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them--and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is. As she struggles to break through her amnesiac haze, the only memories that surface take place in a very different world. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers . . . but only in exchange for her trust.
