Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that’s left is a note telling her about a day she can’t remember. The whole scenario doesn’t exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can’t seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can’t make sense of, she realizes it’s time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if’s in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies.

The premise of this novel is what grabbed me. A girl that falls asleep and wakes up not remembering the day before. I have days I’d rather forget but other’s that I’ll cherish forever… having that taken away from you… I had to see what this story was all about.

This is one of those times where I picked up a book to read a few chapters and didn’t put it down until the last page was read. The story was addicting and the characters were unforgettable! London and Luke….. wow.

I loved their relationship… rocky, imperfect… honest. And Luke was just a normal, sweet guy, one that a girl would actually want to be interested in!

I wasn’t anticipating the mysterious aspect of the novel. I had a feeling that London’s condition was caused by something, but I had no idea what, and it what was finally revealed wasn’t what I was expecting at all. The last paragraph of the summary is spot on: drama, romance and mystery! This book has a little bit of everything!

Be prepared to give yourself some time to read this one, because once you start, you are going to have a hard time stopping!
