Girls With Amnesia

Y'all, books about girls with memory problems are HUGE right now. I don't know why this trend is big, but it is, and some of these books are super-fun reads. Here's four that are available from your library. Click on the link to request the title!



Forgotten by Cat Patrick

Every night while London is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can "remember" are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture. Logan Henry is not someone you'd easily forget, yet try as she might, London can't find him in her memories of things to come.When London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flash-forwards, as the case may be, she realizes it's time to learn about the past she keeps forgetting--before it destroys her future....


The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Mara wakes up from a coma with no memory of the accident that caused the deaths of three of her friends. The doctors tell her parents that starting over in a new state, a new school will be good for her and to let the memories come back on their own. But Mara's new start is anything but when she sees the faces of her dead friends everywhere. And then she begins to see people's deaths before they happen - at least she thinks that is what is happening. On top of that, the most beautiful boy she has ever seen can't seem to leave her alone, but is his agenda more than he leads on? What is happening to Mara Dyer?




As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott

Ava wakes up in a house she doesn't know, into a life she doesn't recognize. She is welcomed home by a devoted mother and loyal friends...but everyone is a stranger. Ava can't remember any of them, and can't shake the strange feeling that she's not who they say she is. Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze and remember the past she's been told is her own. But the memories that begin to surface are of a different life entirely. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions in which she and familiar-faced friends play very different, and very deadly, roles. But when Morgan appears--the one boy able to step from her memories into her reality--the high stakes and ultimate sacrifices of eternal love become the fiercest truth of all.







Rosebush by Michele Jaffe


Instead of celebrating Memorial Day weekend on the Jersey Shore, Jane is in the hospital trying to piece together what happened last night. One minute she was at a party, cuddling with her boyfriend. The next, she was lying near-dead in a rosebush after a hit-and-run. Everyone believes it was an accident, despite the phone threats Jane swears were real. As Jane's boyfriend, friends, and admirers come to visit, more memories surface, not just from the party, but from deeper in her past . . . including the night her best friend Bonnie died. With nearly everyone in her life a suspect now, Jane must unravel the mystery before her killer attacks again. Along the way, she's forced to examine the consequences of her life choices...
