This book kind of got off to a slow start, but gets more interesting. Its about a girl who gets into a car accident and when she wakes up it's 3 years later. Turns out that she had gotten into another car accident and when she wakes up she can only remember everything up to the first accident. So basically she cant remember anything from the previous three years. The idea of the story is pretty good, but it reminded me of the TV show Samantha Who? that used to be on ABC last fall, I don't know if it still is or not, but it's a pretty funny show, but this book kind of follows the same deal, girl wakes up from accident can't remember a chunk of her life and everyday she finds out that she was not the person that she wanted to be. I don't know if the author stole the idea from the show and pimped it up a bit, but that's what it reminded me of. Regardless, it is written well and the characters actually have some brain to them unlike all of the other books written by Sophie Kinsella where the main character is flakey and makes your IQ drop. It'll be a good beach read this summer.
