Find out in this awesome pyschological teen thriller "Six Months Later". This book reminded me of a cross between the books "The Raising" by Laura Kaisischke and "Red Leaves, The Girl in Times Square" by Paulina Simons.
Chloe can't remember the past six months. She doesn't remember why her best friend isn't speaking to her or how she went from slacker to honor student. She certainly can't figure out how the most popular guy in school became her boyfriend. Something isn't right. Chloe senses she's being followed. Someone doesn't want her to remember, maybe more that one someone.
Natalie Richards created a likable, easy to sympathize with heroine in Chloe. She's scared, yet brave and very confused. More than anything she wants her best friend back. And answers. Adam, the guy helping her search for what happened is another great, multidimensional character. Many of the minor characters had unique stories. SIX MONTHS LATER is a real page turner. Richards did a great job weaving mystery, love story and thriller. The ending was the weakest part of the book, somewhat convoluted and fizzled to a yawn. An epilogue would have worked better.
Themes: mystery, high school, friends, mental illness, trust
I think most readers will enjoy this novel and I'll definitely look for more Natalie Richards in the future.
The mystery kept me wanting more, and I really liked Chloe's character. Her issues with anxiety and panic attacks made her more relatable than your average YA heroin. The thing that bothered me while reading the book, was Chloe's feelings for Adam. The whole "bad boy with a heart of gold" thing is very cliche, and sometimes her emotions regarding Adam seemed a little inappropriately timed considering what was going on. The fact that she only turned to two people to help her figure out what happened to her does leave you scratching your head though. The only other issue I had was that there was some cussing throughout the book, usually minor, but the S word was used fairly often. The main characters using the name of God as an exclamation I didn't appreciate either.
That being said, I did like Adam, and the mystery kept me guessing until the very end. It was a thrilling book, and longer than I thought it would be, which was wonderful. All in all, I loved it, and it is well worth the read.
and Adam. Ms. Natalie is an excellent author and her ability to "bring you into the story" is a plus. I hope to see more of her
characters in the future. I love it, Ms. Natalie.
I was so excited to pick up this book! I mean the blurb above is intriguing, and the main character has my name! This book sucks you in from the beginning. It's full of twists and turns and you never know what to expect next! Overall this is a great, suspenseful read. I'd recommend it.

An alluring and addictive read, with an extremely beguiling mystery at its heart, I really enjoyed this. Chloe has lost time and it seems along with that time she has also lost herself. But why? What on earth could have happened to change so much for her? As she realises that she is alarmed by the popular Blake, when previously she would have given anything for him to notice her and finds that she is strangely attracted to a boy she herself would not have given the time of day to back then, that coupled with other bizarre happenings tells her that perhaps something sinister is going on...
Cleverly written with small but significant doses of information coming in every chapter, I was compelled to follow along with Chloe as she attempts to retrieve her friendships and her own sense of self, as well as work out what set off the amnesia...with some terrific characterisation and a truly imaginative mystery this was a wonderful reading experience.
Highly Recommended for fans of YA, with a touch of romance and a good few thrills and spills thrown in for good measure. I look forward with interest to this authors next novel.
Happy Reading Folks!
The solution to it all is very unrealistic but the author does her best to keep you reading to find out what that solution is, its almost like the build up was written first then it got to the point where the book needed to finish but she couldn't quite make it match up to the build up.
Good to read but just a disappointing ending I thought
