    1. This book was sold to me as an adventure book an adult woman wakes up as a fifteen year old one morning, not recognizing anything or anyone after that age Like popular travel back in time movies, I thought this was going to be a fun book I couldn t be wrong There is little action There is a lot of introspection and self analysis.But this is not to say I didn t enjoy it, quite the opposite But this is a serious book The true story of a woman with dissociative amnesia and a fractured personality [...]



    2. This book provided a perspective I d never considered in amnesia cases that from the point of view of the person who has suddenly lost all those years of memories, they essentially feel like a time traveller in this case a fifteen year old waking up in a 32 year old body a la Suddenly 30 or the like, trying to piece together the life their adult self has created Except in this case, there s no return to the present to fix the mistakes before they happen, there s just living with it and moving on [...]


    3. I found it fascinating to learn about dissociative amnesia I learnt a lot about the mind and feel that I could apply some of what I learnt to my own life Despite the serious themes, it was quite humorous at times.


    4. Could not finish this bookwas expecting a bit but couldnt see it actually going anywheregot a bit bored of her reading journals and having the sadsuldnt read than 2 or 3 pages without falling asleep


    5. It was an interesting story, and one that intrigued me when I first read about this book in a news article However, it wasn t the story I expected it to be and found the writing style quite tiresome to read.



    6. Like other readers I lost some interest it could have been shortened for greater effect An interesting story of survival and the human psyche


    7. What an incredible book I really identified with her struggle to accept and learn to love herself no matter what life throws at her or what people think Very inspiring


    8. This book shows we need to value ourselves and be thankful for our life then we can forgive others And forgiveness will bring peace to our mind and soul.
