Product Description

NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY Bestselling book!
A YA LOVE story about a girl who has her life turned upside down. 
A girl.
A coma.
A life she can't remember.
When Emma Walker wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how she got there, she learns that she's been in a coma for six months. Strangers show up and claim to be her parents, but she can't remember them. She can't remember anyone. Not her friends, not even her boyfriend. Even though she can't remember, everyone wants her to just pick up where she left off, but what she learns about the 'old her' makes her start to wish she'd never woken up. Her boyfriend breaks up with the new girl he's dating to be with her, her parents want her to start planning for college, her friends want their leader back, and her physical therapist with the hazel eyes keeps his distance to save his position at the hospital.
Will she ever feel like she recognizes the girl in the mirror?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea but didn't engage me 17 Jan 2014
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked the idea of this book very much. The whole reinventing yourself, being a better person thing appeals to me as a concept. Unfortunately I wasn't bowled over by the romance. It seemed to happen too quickly. I found the interaction with her parents and friends was well done it wasn't rushed or uncomplicated. The conflict between who Emma was/is was fascinating and had me wondering about how much of who we are is determined by our experiences/memories in our life and therefore how different would we be if suddenly all that was gone. Like I said though, I just didn't buy the romance. It was nice and sweet when they were together but there wasn't enough of the 'falling' phase for me. It seemed instantaneous. Because I struggled with this I found myself not really engaging with the book and skimmed most of the last third. Then I got cross because the book finishes at 90% and that really annoys me! I'm expecting a whole lot more story because the counter says 90% but it's suddenly over! I wasn't too disappointed it was over though. Onwards to another book and another author!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great concept but not very well explored 7 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the concept, and some of it was really well handled. She spends a lot of time feeling sad that her new persona is a disappointment to her mom and dad, which I totally understand. And the ex-boyfriend stuff was also realistic. But I just didn't understand the new relationship - it didn't feel right or real. Aimed at young adults, but manages to be too adult and too childish at the same time.

Review from [...]

This is a book that instantly made me want to stand up and take notice, I am a huge Shelly Crane fan the way she is able to tell a story always leave me amazed and I cannot wait to gobble up anything she gives us, even if it means staying up to all hours of the morning like I did with this book . . . I just could not put it down.

"It doesn't matter who you were or what you've done in the past. The only thing that matters is who you are right now."

Emma Walker has woken up from a 6 month coma and has no idea who she is or who the strangers are around her, she is generally confused and bewildered. How could she forget her own life or the people in it? Even more confusing she finds herself wanting to trust the man with the beautiful Hazel eyes who was standing over her when she first opened her eyes.

"You're the girl that I'm falling madly in love with." I felt all the breath leave me. My mouth fell open, but no words escaped. He chuckled. "A speechless Emma. That's really cute."

Emma's parents are overwhelmed at having their daughter awake and all they want is to have her back even if they have to be a little overbearing to get there. You feel for Emma and can get her frustration and the emptiness she must feel. Your hearts will break for her parents in some moment but on others you want to yell at them to take a step back and give Emma a chance to breath and understand herself what is going on.

"Sometimes, knowing when to let go is just as important as knowing when to hold tight.

I really enjoyed this story. I couldn't imagine waking up in a hospital and not having any idea as to who I was or who the people around me were. To remember music, words, books, etc.. but not anything about your actual life. Scary.

"The things we should focus on in any life shouldn't be what we've lost, but what we've gained"

I found Emma to be a strong character. Not knowing who she was before and the pressure from her family and friends to try to conform to who they wanted her to be now. They want her to remember herself as before and they try their hardest to force her to think and act a certain way.

However the more Emma learns about her 'old' self the more she realizes she doesn't really like the person she was before. To be frank she was a spoiled brat. Rude, needy and one of the mean girls at school. This is not the Emma now and the drives she obviously felt before are no longer there. She doesn't care about fancy cars, money, designer purses, or being a part of the 'it' couple at school.

"It doesn't matter who you were or what you've done in the past. The only thing that matters is who you are right now."

Enter Mason. Mason is Emma's physical therapist and helps her after she wakes up. I know what you are thinking... eewww[...] Her physical therapist? He is only a few years older than Emma and nothing inappropriate happens while she is in the hospital. I was at first worried that the feelings she was having toward Mason was because of him being her carer but thankfully it never came across like that. He is always sweet and kind to Emma and is the one person that tells her it is okay to be who she wants to be. She doesn't have to be who her friends and family are trying to force her into being.
