Courtesy of Teens Read Too
on January 29, 2009
Since she was a child, Erin has been plagued with mental illness. Her schizophrenic episodes have kept her in and out of various institutions for most of her life. Now, at age 16, Erin's therapist has decided she must re-enter the real world.
Public school is a little frightening - lots of kids, larger classes, more stimuli to trigger an outburst. Erin attempts normal teenage activities; making new friends and trying out for the fencing team, but nothing is able to stop her alter-ego from rearing her ugly head.
Erin believed that Shevaun had finally disappeared, but now she is back with a vengeance. Erin must find a way to control Shevaun before it's too late.
Amelia Atwater-Rhodes has been writing about the paranormal since she was thirteen. Her stories involve vampires, shape-shifters, witches, and magic, and PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY is chock full of all of these elements.
The story is fast-paced, which makes it a quick read. Those readers who enjoy the supernatural will definitely want to give this book a try.
Also, look for sequels on the horizon. Atwater-Rhodes' final chapter is open-ended, leaving room for future stories about Erin and Shevaun.
