The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr


Book Summary:

Seventeen-year-old Flora Banks has no short-term memory. Her mind resets itself several times a day, and has since the age of ten, when the tumor that was removed from Flora’s brain took with it her ability to make new memories. That is, until she kisses Drake, her best friend’s boyfriend, the night before he leaves town. Miraculously, this one memory breaks through Flora’s fractured mind, and sticks. Flora is convinced that Drake is responsible for restoring her memory and making her whole again. So when an encouraging email from Drake suggests she meet him on the other side of the world, Flora knows with certainty that this is the first step toward reclaiming her life.

With little more than the words “be brave” inked into her skin, and written reminders of who she is and why her memory is so limited, Flora sets off on an impossible journey to Svalbard, Norway, the land of the midnight sun, determined to find Drake. But from the moment she arrives in the arctic, nothing is quite as it seems, and Flora must “be brave” if she is ever to learn the truth about herself, and to make it safely home.


My Review:

Flora her whole life has trouble remembering things, her long term memories are gone. The only way for her to remember each day is writing on her arm, or there notes laying around for her to find. Her best friend Paige help take care of her, then one day she kissed Paige boyfriend before he leave town. Now that the only memory that stays with her. When her family have to go away, leaving her alone for the first ever, Flora must find Drake to help remember things good. Will Flora be brave enough to this alone? This is book is a quick read, love how it is written. Kinda got to take a peck inside Flora head and what’s she been going through. Lots of secrets are hidden in this book and comes to light towards the end. Leaves you rooting for Flora to the boy who helped her remember. So enter Flora mind and see how she over comes her journey and find the truth why she can’t remember in the first place. Happy Reading!
