Jessica, I did not know that you could make a story like this.
The Forgotten Girl tells the story of 21 year old Maddie Ashford who has amnesia from 6 years ago. All she can remember is laying in the street in the rain in front of car headlights with a silhouette of a man standing across from her.
Maddie hasn't gotten her memories back and she doesn't know why. Although she goes to a therapist, she doesn't tell him what little she remembers.
And the thing about Maddie is that she hears a voice in her head. Her name is Lily. Lily is the bad part of her. Lily wants to kill people.
Maddie hates this because sometimes she cannot control her and the thoughts that Lily has.
That's all I want to tell you.
The Forgotten Girl was amazing. Even though in the beginning, I had no idea where this story was going, it changed quickly and I felt very interested in Maddie's life.
It deals with a topic that I am very fascinated in, people who experience amnesia and people who hear voices in their head, and it's not schizophrenia.
I just felt bad for Maddie because literally EVERYONE was hiding a secret from her.
Seriously, every side character that you think doesn't mean anything. They all hold a key part in Maddie's past and present.
It was so hard for Maddie because she doesn't know anything. She's constantly trying to figure out herself and who she was 6 years ago before her accident.
And guys that ending!
Jessica, you threw a humongous curve ball and I couldn't handle it. I read the ending in class and I literally was saying no and tearing up.
Bravo Jessica, for writing a story so different than your previous works and I loved every second of it.
(I wish there was some more. But it is sadly a standalone.)
The Forgotten Girl had me hooked from the beginning. I read it all in one sitting! I just had to know what the heck was going on, since it gets stranger and darker as it moves forward. The narrative also alternates between Maddie and Lily, although Maddie is usually "in control." Lily likes pain, and torment, and hurting people. She thinks Maddie is weak, and takes over when she thinks something needs to get done. Maddie's mother keeps telling her that she was such a good girl, but Maddie can't believe that when she has this dark side to her.
Then there's the murders. Three people wind up dead, and Maddie gets more and more freaked out that she may have done it. And the only way to figure it out, is to unlock her lost memories, which she suspects Lily is blocking for some reason. Maddie tries to ask her mother about the little details she can remember, but she refuses to say anything. Obviously, something really bad happened. And it did! I did figure out who Lily was early on, but I could never imagine what had happened to them to cause all this.
The ending of The Forgotten Girl was a bit jumbled to me. Once the truth started coming out, it just kept coming, and coming, and at times it was hard to tell what Maddie was really seeing and what she was hallucinating. It got confusing, but I really loved that epilogue. I was really surprised by that twist!
Wow, this book is trippy. It will mess with you head leaving you just as confused as the character. I really loved this book it is a sort of dual point of view with Maddie and Lily. I loved how everything progressed seeing the mind of Maddie of what happened and wondering what was the mystery behind the murders and her past that made her who she is. There is so much going on making you question what you thought was true or not when it came to solving who was behind everything.
"It's hard to see the reality when there's so much craziness inside me."
Take my word on it you're going to want to check out this book. Can't wait to see what happens next!
"We're all two people in a way... the one we show to everyone else and the one we keep hidden to ourselves."
She also needs to do a little more research before trying her hand at psychological thrillers. I don't know if she was trying to tell us if Maddie/Lily was schizophrenic, if she had multiple personality disorder, or both. I don't even think she knew. It was a terrible mix of the two, and not at all realistic in many instances.
You're telling me that this poor girl went through all of those terrible things in her life and no one ever told her?? Sure, maybe she has amnesia, but in what world does something like this happen and NO ONE knows?? Yea. Not likely. Terrible book, in my opinion.
