The most dangerous thing Miranda North
can do is remember who she is.

Miranda North wakes up alone on a park bench with no memory. In her panic, she releases a mysterious energy that incites pure terror in everyone around her. Except for Peter, a boy who isn't at all surprised by Miranda's shocking ability.

Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers that she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But readjusting to her old life isn't easy - especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can't remember loving.

Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn't seem to matter... when there may not be a future. 

Opening Sentence: In the food court I find a mall cop leaning against a pillar.

Review:

Who are you without your memories? This is the question that is brought up throughout this book.

False Memory by Dan Krokos was an enjoyable read. At the same time though, I kind of wish I would of read it at a different time. I had just finished reading Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally and it was such an emotionally heartbreaking read for me, that it was almost to hard for me to get into False Memory. But I stuck it out and I was Dan was finally able to win me over to his side.

While this story isn't perfect. There was a lot about it (the technical "explaining" parts) that really rather confused the heck out of me, it didn't take to much from the book itself.

How do you get your life back, after you have tragically lost all of your memories? How can you know who to trust? How do you learn how to move one with life and try and forge a new path for yourself?

Miranda can't remember much, besides her name and age. And it is driving her slightly crazy. Then after a terrible mall accident, a boy named Peter claims to know her and that he wants to take her back to her home... Their home. And then yet another boy claims to be her boyfriend. But how can she know that any of this is true? And after a terrible accident, a fight with a mysterious group and learning a terrible truth, Miranda is forced to flee for her life, with three people she doesn't yet know if she can even trust.

False Memory is an engrossing read that slowly (on it's own terms) reveals all the secrets that it is hiding. But not all of them. Oh no, that would be way to easy. Miranda slowly gets some of her memories back, but deep down, she knows she's not the same person that Peter, Noah & Olive remember.

When you are forming new memoires, does that mean you are able to form a new life with it as well? Does she still have feelings for Noah? Or can she overcome the mysterious urge that pulls her to him, to love Peter, the one that rescued her from the darkness of not knowing who she even was? False Memory was an enjoyable ride and I look forward to reading False Sight when it releases in August of next year.
