There are no safe spaces… When Tess Porter agrees to pick up her boyfriend’s college pal at the airport on a snowy December night, she has no idea she’s about to embark on the most dangerous ride of her life. Two days later, the 17-year-old wakes up in a hospital with broken bones, and unable to remember how she got there. Her parents are acting strangely, and neither James, her boyfriend, nor her best friend Izzy has visited. As she struggles to physically recover, Tess wrestles with haunting questions: What happened? Will her memory ever return? and what if she’s better off not recalling any of it?
4 out of 5 (very good)
Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Tess has woken up in hospital with no recollection of how she got there, nobody is telling her anything that's happened and all she wants is to see her boyfriend and her best friend, what is the big secret why is nobody telling her anything what's gone on! she's got to sift through her memories to find out the secrets everybody's been hiding from her.
oh my gosh so many emotions through this book, so much guessing and yes I did cry! it was brilliantly written and kept you gripped from the first paragraph. Its great how when she gets her memory back its not everything is hunky dory right as rain she has the support needed to get her through the difficulties she facing. When she did get her memories back my heart sank for her i was devastated.
This is a fantastically written story with the emotional core of a rollercoaster keep some tissues handy.
a definite recommendation 4/5
