Book Review: Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin

Memoirs of a Teenage AmnesiacMemoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an interesting novel about a girl who hits her head, gets amnesia, and loses the past four years of memories. It’s a good story for anyone who has wanted to start over or wished for a fresh start in life. Most people don’t truly get a fresh start, even when they try to give themselves one. They often find they’re the same person in a new situation, but that’s not the case with Naomi.

Naomi is alternately blessed and cursed with navigating a world in which everyone thinks they know exactly who she is. She struggles to understand who she was before the accident and who she’s supposed to be after it. Some days, that’s nothing but a frustration, and other days, it is the perfect opportunity for her to figure out exactly who she wants to be.
