An interesting mystery with thrilling events and compelling characters.
Chloe didn’t think about it much when she nodded off in study hall on that sleepy summer day. But when she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can’t remember the last six months of her life. Before, she’d been a mediocre student. Now, she’s on track for valedictorian and being recruited by Ivy League schools. Before, she never had a chance with super jock Blake. Now he’s her boyfriend. Before, she and Maggie were inseparable. Now her best friend won’t speak to her.
What happened to her?
And why can’t she remember?
Didn’t find one.
I’m sitting next to the fire alarm, and my best friend is going down in flames.
If you’re a fan of mysteries you’ll love this book. I was thoroughly lost at first. Chloe does a very good job of working through her dilemma. Since this was a mystery I cannot comment on very much of the plot, only that is well written and very well thought out.
Nothing spectacular setting wise. The book played out much like a great mystery thriller movie so Natalie did very well with her descriptions.
Written in first person from Chloe’s point of view. I would have loved to have seen some scenes from Adam’s point of view or even Maggie’s.
Very original for me. Other than reading some time travel books I haven’t read anything where memory is lost like this. I loved the mystery element. I usually do not enjoy mysteries because some writers make it painfully obvious of what’s going on, which is not the case in this book. I had suspicions but nothing concrete to where I was yelling at the book.
Chloe is having a rough time and she comes off as super strong and powerful. She copes so well with everything that is thrown at her. Her parents come off as a bit creepy. Chloe has two boys in her life: Blake and Adam. I loved Adam, not so much Blake.
Chloe’s best friend Maggie is pretty cool. I wish we would have seen a bit more of her.
Chloe’s relationship with Blake is what it is. Adam is adorable, sweet, protective and attractive.
Not my most favorite cover ever.
Everything was wrapped up nicely.
Doesn’t look to be a series as of yet but I wouldn’t mind going back into another mystery with Chloe and Friends!
