Pages: Kindle Edition
View/Purchase: Goodreads

When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one. Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle.

My Review: 

When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Lost and disorientated, she is afraid to ask for help, encountering danger she gets saved by a homeless woman. She teaches her how to get around, and with that she spends her week as a homeless person. That is until she gets hit by a car and ends up in the hospital where she discovers who she really is. Terrified of her past self, she is determined to change and change the minds of those that have hated her for what she has done to them in the past. The more she learns about herself and those around her, she discovers just how important friendships are and who are worth fighting for.

I enjoyed the book, it was great, but I've seen this story so many times that it became too predictable for me. The very beginning of the story had me intrigued, but as it progressed it started too feel unrealistic, especially when things started moving too fast that it all ended rather quickly. From the premise of the book, we get an interesting twist to your typical “mean girl story”, it had potential to be great, yet it lacked a more detail resolution to the conflict. The writing was great, it flowed very well. Overall, this book was good and I would recommend it to anyone that just wants a fast book to read, and it's not expecting too much out of it.
