RICHARDS, Natalie D. Six Months Later. 336p. Sourcebooks/Fire. Oct. 2013. pap. $9.99. ISBN 978-1-4022-8551-6.~Gr 9 Up-Chloe leads a mediocre life as a high school junior in a small Ohio town-until the day she falls asleep in study hall and wakes up to find it's six months later. She now has exceptional SAT scores, the perfect boyfriend whom she's been crushing on for years, and a buzzing social life. However, Chloe can't remember anything about her previous life. Nor can she remember why her best friend, Maggie, isn't speaking to her, or why her heart races whenever she sees bad-boy Adam, with whom she seems to be all too familiar. She knows that she should be happy about her new life, but everything feels wrong. As she tries to figure out what happened to her, she uncovers a chilling conspiracy surrounding her memory loss, and the only person she can trust is the one who won't take her calls. The story is well paced and beautifully written, with fully developed characters teens can easily relate to. This romantic thriller will leave readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page. Recommend it to fans of Gayle Forman's If I Stay (Dutton, 2009) and Lissa Price's Starters (Delacorte, 2012).-Candyce Pruitt-Goddard, Hartford Public Library, CTα(c) Copyright 2013.

Chloe, an average student with a bit of a rebellious streak, wakes up in study hall one day not remembering the past six months. But suddenly she’s popular, dating her longtime crush, being recruited by Ivy League colleges because of top SAT scores, and her best friend is no longer speaking to her. As Chloe tries to unravel her memories, she begins to uncover secrets more dangerous than she ever thought possible. The pressure and angst of precollege life, perfect grades, and test scores take center stage in this debut thriller. Readers are thrown right into the mystery alongside Chloe, and as the plot is slowly uncovered, the suspense rises to a shocking crescendo of events. Chloe is an intriguing character with plenty of gumption, and she makes for a splendid amateur detective. There is some romance sprinkled throughout with a supposed bad boy, and even this character has more depth than the average hunky lead. With several twists and surprises, this is a well-plotted mystery, sure to keep readers guessing. Grades 9-12. --Sarah Bean ThompsonSee all Editorial Reviews
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 13 days ago by BeatleBangs1964
