There is nothing not to love with this book. It is really-truly-honestly that fantastic! I had read good things (various reviews off Goodreads) about this book yet for some reason I wasn’t overly eager to read. With past history these books that I sorta have to push to read seem to be my favorite. I don’t know if I just go in with low expectations or what it is, but I’m really loving this trend. So…if you are like me where you have this book but have yet to pick up and read do yourself a favor and READ!

My absolute favorite thing about this book was that I completely was not expecting the ending. During the whole book I did not piece anything together. I won’t say too much because I try to keep my reviews spoiler free; but seriously I love when I don’t piece books together but in the end it all works and makes sense.

A very compelling read, full of characters and a plot that keeps you engaged; you all know how much I love strong characters that are developed. If these are what all of Griffin’s characters are like then sign me up to read more from her.

"After a near-fatal car crash, 17-year-old Ember returns home from the hospital, but she's not the same. Though her body has healed, she can't remember the accident or the six weeks that came before it. As the jagged pieces of her memory slowly start to resurface, Ember follows a hunch to a dance club where she meets Kai, a strangely alluring artist who might be able to help her put the pieces together. The pace in this psychological mystery accelerates steadily as Ember remembers more and more, building to a stunning conclusion that mystery fans won't want to miss."
