Gr 9 Up–Stevie and Nora are two teenage girls madly in love in a conservative town that would never accept them. They love in secret, meeting in the woods of Nora’s farm or in a neighboring city where they can indulge in public dating without fear. After finishing high school, they have money saved and their escape to an accepting, affirming life in California all planned out. That is until a devastating accident causes Stevie to forget that Nora exists. She wakes up to a life, to friends, and to parents who are completely different from those she remembers, having no idea what has made them estranged during the gap in her memory. As well, she finds herself magnetically drawn to the strange girl who saved her life, Nora, who unbeknownst to her is concealing her broken heart and her deep hope that Stevie will remember their love. It’s a well-paced, well-built, heartbreaking, and heartwarming story about trusting instincts, finding the right people, and figuring it all out. Readers will root for this couple against all odds. Perfect for fans of a good amnesia story.
VERDICT A solid purchase for all libraries serving teens, especially where LGBTQIA+ contemporary romance is popular.
