Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin
It all starts with a coin toss. Namoi and Will are headed home when they realize they forgot something at school. Who should go back for it? I guess fate will decide. Namoi loses the toss...and so begins the chain of event that lead to her waking up in an ambulance with amnesia. She can not remember the last 4years. Not her boyfriend, her mom's new family, her dad's fiancée, or even her passion for yearbook.
Her best friend Will is just about the best friend that I could imagine having. He is always so understanding and always puts Naomi before himself and what he wants (which it turns out is Naomi). James is the troubled boy who rescues Naomi and helps distract her from the stress of losing her memories. What if your slate was wiped clean? Would you like the same things? Like the same people? Be the same person? Once again I really liked this book. It is very thought-provoking. I recommend this book to all!
