My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.
Average-achiever Chloe falls asleep in study hall on a beautiful spring day, and wakes up to the snow falling outside her classroom window, standardized test scores that have Ivy Leagues fighting over her, and the crush of her life as a boyfriend. But six months have been erased, and she has no idea how her life became perfect.
Her best friend won’t talk to her, making it very clear that Chloe has done something unforgivable. The brooding school bad-boy’s number has somehow ended up in her phone, and she has the compulsion to call him constantly, even though they’ve never exchanged more than a few words. A perfect, pretty classmate has suddenly left town, leaving a wake of unanswered questions. Notes Chloe left to herself in pages of books claim there’s a connection, but Chloe can’t piece it together.
Memories she can’t place start to surface- conversations that never happened and situations that definitely didn’t exist. As her life begins to spiral out of control, Chloe has to wonder what price she has to pay to be perfect… and if perfect is what she wants in the first place.
