Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen.
Complete strangers since this morning.
He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.
OMG! I can’t believe that I haven’t read this book until now. The blurb doesn’t do it justice. Really it is just a teaser. The book is FREAKING AMAZING!
Charlie and Silas “wake up”(although that’s not an accurate statement) and realize they have no memories, NONE, of anything: who they are, where they are, who their friends or enemies are, what the dynamics of their family relationships are and most importantly, what their relationship is to one another.
They don’t let anyone know about their conditions and slowly piece a few things together. They’re in love, or used to be, Their families hates each other and don’t want them together, they both have tattoos on their backs, Charlie’s father is in prison for embezzlement and more in regards to a business he used to co-own and run with Silas’s father and Charlie has been cheating on Silas with Brian, a boy from school and Silas has been cheating on Charlie’s with the school’s guidance counselor, Ms. Ashley.
After after a disastrous tarot reading in the French Quarter, Charlie pretends to get in a cab to get away from Silas and disappeares.Silas finds with out the next morning when she doesn’t show up for school and goes to her house and while arguing with her mother (who is a drunk) sees a letter addressed to her and takes it. Reading it he finds out that THEY have written themselves a letter stating that “the waking up with no memories” has happened twice before that week and seems to happen every 48 hours. They put everything in the letter they have discovered about themselves and others so when it happens again they won’t haven’t to start from scratch. It’s three minutes until the 48 hours is up and Silas is frantically writing things down that he and Charlie have found out in the last two days. The last thing he writes it that Charlie has disappeared and he has to find her. The book ends.
TALK ABOUT A CLIFF HANGER.
Absolutely loved it.
