If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss. She wouldn’t have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn’t have hit her head on the steps. She wouldn’t have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia. She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place. She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her “Chief.” She’d know about her mom’s new family. She’d know about her dad’s fiancée. She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her. She wouldn’t have wanted to kiss him back.
 
But Naomi picked heads.

After her remarkable debut, Gabrielle Zevin has crafted an imaginative second novel all about love and second chances. Download and start listening now!

    " One of my favorites, simple and extraordinary wrapped into one. I simply love this book. "

    " You always here people saying if I just did this, or if I could relive that, and I wish I could relive something, but Naomi gets a clean slate after flying down a flight of stairs in front of her high school. She lost the memory of the last four years of her life, to forget her move, her parents divorce, and everything in between. She has to put together her life by finding out who she was while figuring out who she is and who she wants to be, giving up what used to matter most like Ace, her boyfriend and her best friend WIll. She realizes how she wants to rebuild her life and gets to a comfortable state when her memory comes back and she has to choose which life she truly wants. If she wants to reconcile with her mother and meet her half sister, if she wants to accept her father getting remarried. I found this book interesting, making me think about how I would deal with a situation like this, or how it would feel to have to start over when everyone around you knows more about you then your self. I liked the book and it keep me intrigued through out the whole story. The only thing about the book that I didn't like was the first couple of pages, but after you get through those the plot line really picks up. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a different and original plot within the "Chick-Lit" genre. "

    " Not quite as amazing as her debut and chockful of those hard to avoid grown-up's writing YA fantasies of high school boys wearing fedoras and making amazing mixes for the girls they are devoted to - but there is something about Zevin and her writing that plucks a little chord inside. Maybe it's her slightly cranky blog or the fact that she doesn't post a picture or do FB. I am rather looking forward to the next. "

    " When Naomi falls down the steps and lose her memory her entire life changes. She isn't sure she likes the person she used to be and strives to become someone she wants to be.[return][return]This is a fabulous story that hooks you in immediately and doesn't let go until the end. Fascinating to think about the moment of your life, that if you could forget it, would change the way you think about yourself and the way you are. "
