The whole plot of this novel is awesome. I know it's probably been done before (not exactly the same, but similar), but I really enjoyed the suspense and mystery that shrouded the plot. I didn't really guess the whole ending correctly; I loved how I was surprised-that doesn't happen often. I had a really hard time putting this book down. I finished the entire novel in two sittings. This book is highly recommended to young adult/teen readers.

What makes this so disappointing is that Six Months Later started off very strongly. Chloe falls asleep at her desk one summer day, and when she wakes up, she’s still at her desk, but there is snow on the ground. No one else is in the room. Strangest of all, her fingernails are dirty, and her clothes are different. What happened??? Sounds like a great start, right?
But after the opening, everything starts to go off the rails. Chloe soon realizes that six months of her life disappeared, and she’s understandably terrified. But for reasons I still don’t understand, she keeps her memory loss a secret for a long time. She plays dumb to her parents and those around her, even as she realizes her life completely changed during that period. She somehow became a genius, she’s dating Blake, the hottest guy in school who barely knew she existed before, and she’s suddenly popular.
Her confusion leads her to overlook what is blindingly obvious to us: There’s something VERY off about Blake. He sends her strange, menacing texts. He follows her around and pops up in odd places. And he seems to have some ulterior motives for dating Chloe.
This story wouldn’t be complete without a love triangle, so let’s throw in another hot guy, Adam, who’s clearly into Chloe, unlike Blake, the supposed boyfriend.Read more ›
Chloe falls asleep in Study Hall. Fast forward six months and she wakes up, only to discover that her life has been flipped inside out. She has dirt under her fingernails and no clue what happened to her. Her best friend doesn't speak to her anymore. The hot guy she's been crushing on for ages is now her boyfriend. But, oddly enough, it is the creepy guy with a criminal record and crooked (*coughs* sexy *coughs*) smile that is making her heart beat faster. She's also one of the top students in her class now! How weird is that?! Amnesia caused by SAT-related stress? Is she going crazy or has something terrible happened to her?
There are no paranormal elements at play in this book, though half of the time (OK - 99% of the time!) you feel like there is something sinister and evil going on. And of course, you're right about that! The story is dripping with tension, mystery and intrigue. It's so intense, I had to make a conscious effort not to bite my nails. And Richards' excellent writing style only enhances the experience. The narration flows effortlessly, and the plot line is so unbelievably gripping, it practically swallows you whole. I honestly did not expect to be so completely immersed in this book. I have been hearing amazing things about Six Months Later even before I picked it up, but even all the rave reviews, all the oohs and aaahs, did not prepare me for the crazy rollercoaster ride it turned out to be. This book is a masterpiece!
Chloe is an unreliable narrator; she has no idea what is going on and has to work hard to discover the truth behind her missing memories. Her story is a puzzle, and as you read further into it, you begin to put the pieces together.Read more ›
But things are not all bright and toasty, there are some things that are not so super great. Your best friend since when you were in diapers is not longer speaking to you. And even though you have everything you have ever wanted, this new bf, new friends and new academic achievements screams some major falsehood. And well not remembering the last six months of your life and how all these changes seemed to come about doesn't really help either. What would you do?
These are the challenges that Chloe faces. As must as she has always dreamed up being with Blake, she lizes that he is not everything that she expected him to be, and that he may even be dangerous. Chloe finds herself longing for Adam, even though he has a criminal record and everyone is warning her away from him. But there is something about Adam that she can't stay away form, especially since his touch is the only thing that allows her to have glimpses of what has happened to her in the last six months.Read more ›

This is a rather bizarre mystery and one that was fairly easy to figure out. Even so, the characters and the events that came their way made for a very riveting read. Read morePublished 4 months ago by BeatleBangs1964
