A thrilling tale about what a girl will do to get back a memory she lost...or remove what she wants to forget.Harper is used to her family being hounded by protestors. Her father runs the company that trademarked the “Memtex” procedure to wipe away sad memories, and plenty of people think it shouldn’t be legal. Then a new demonstrator crosses her path, Neil, who’s as persistent as he is hot. Not that Harper’s noticing, since she already has a boyfriend. When Harper suffers a loss, she’s shocked her father won’t allow her to get the treatment, so she finds a way to get it without his approval. Soon afterward, she’s plagued with strange symptoms, including hallucinations of a woman who is somehow both a stranger, yet incredibly familiar. Harper begins to wonder if she is delusional, or if these are somehow memories. Together with Neil, who insists he has his own reasons for needing answers about the real dangers...

Harper is yet another fragile heroine led astray by a smooth-talking bad boy. She allows him to plant the seeds of doubt in her mind about her father and his company’s dubious practices. But she never does any digging into his background; she leaves that to other people—her best friend, her boyfriend and her father. Such lax behavior is beyond infuriating; it made me want to wash my hands of her several times while reading.

At times Harper came off as so self-involved, moody and vacillating about her schoolwork, friends and boyfriend, I wondered how anyone could stand her. We’re led to believe that the surgical procedure she took is somehow responsible for this radical shift in her personality. But, as this reader continued with her story, I couldn’t help but feel what she needed was a swift kick in the backside.

But the bad guy is uncovered and a criminal procedure is exposed. The author doesn’t take the traditional route at this point, however. What we get is a more realistic ending, one that takes into account all of the people who would be affected by public exposure, planting this more firmly in 21st-century policy. The conclusion is better than what would be expected, nudging this novel just a tad into adult territory.
