Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

Exclusive Excerpt

“The memory loss could be permanent. These things are hard to predict. Right now, we
just don’t know.” Dr. Weston cleared his throat. “The good news is that the rest of her injuries
are superficial. And from what we can gather from additional exams, she wasn’t assaulted.”
“Oh my god,” cried the woman. “Assaulted? Like in—”
“Joanna, the doctor said she wasn’t assaulted. You need to calm down.”
“I have a right to be upset,” she snapped. “Steven, she’s been missing for four days.”
“The county boys picked her up outside Michaux State Forest.” Dr. Weston paused. “Do
you know why she’d be there?”
“We have a summer home there, but it hasn’t been opened since September. And we
checked there. Right, Steven?”
“But she’s okay, right?” asked the man. “It’s just her memory that’s a problem?”
“Yes, but it’s not a simple case of amnesia,” the doctor said.
I backed away from the door and climbed into the bed. My heart was pounding again.
Who were these people, and why were they here? I pulled the blanket up to my shoulders. I
caught bits and pieces of what the doctor was saying. Something about suffering an extreme
shock combined with dehydration and the concussion—a medical perfect storm, where my brain
had dissociated from my personal identity. Sounded complicated.
“I don’t understand,” I heard the woman say.
“It’s like writing something on your computer and then you save the file, but you can’t
remember where you saved it,” the doctor explained. “The file is in there, but you just have to
find it. She still has her personal memories. They’re in there, but she can’t access them. She may
never find them.”
I sat back, dismayed. Where did I put the file?
Then the door swung open, and I shrank back as this woman—this force to be reckoned
with—stormed into my room. Her deep russet–colored hair was pulled into an elegant twist,
exposing an angular but beautiful face.
She came to a complete stop, her eyes darting all over me. “Oh, Samantha…”
I stared. Samantha? The name didn’t do anything for me. I glanced at the doctor. He
nodded reassuringly. Sa-man-tha…Nope, still nothing.
The woman came closer. There wasn’t a single wrinkle in her linen pants or her white
blouse. Golden bangles hung from each of her slender wrists, and she reached out, wrapping her
arms around me. She smelled like freesia.
“Baby girl,” she said, her hand smoothing my hair as she looked me in the eyes. “God,
I’m so happy you’re okay.”

I pulled back, clamping my arms to my sides.
