Gr 9 Up—In the past, Addison Sullivan spent a summer falling in love with Zach, an aspiring movie producer who worked at the local movie store. The summer was perfect, with days filled with practicing her viola and any remaining time spent with Zach; it was more than she could have dreamed. In the present, things are not as pleasant. Addison has no memory of Zach and the perfect summer. When she meets a cute boy on a bus, the vehicle crashes and she cannot find him. But as she goes about her life, she runs into him at random times. She's the only one who can see him. Fearful she is going crazy or talking to a dead person, Addison starts looking for answers. But she may not be happy with what she finds out. It seems that her family and friends know more about her past than she does. What memories would you forget if you could? Everett seamlessly switches between past and present in an organic way. Readers will be rushing to the conclusion of this fast-paced thriller.
VERDICT YA romance readers will enjoy this novel, which offers some suspense and a few twists along the way.
