As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott
Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends, and a crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them - and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is.
Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze as she goes through the motions of high-school life, but the memories that surface take place in a very different world, where Ava and familiar-faced friends are under constant scrutiny and no one can be trusted. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers . . . but only in exchange for her trust.
First of all, how amazing is that cover? I happened across this as I was shopping for Elizabeth Scott books last week and was completely devastated that it doesn't come out till September! I don't know what to make of this synopsis. At first it sounds like a really interesting look at a girl's struggle with amnesia, but then it gets much darker -- she's not who they say she is? Was she kidnapped? What caused her amnesia? PTSD (a la Mara Dyer)? And THEN it gets kind of dystopian or maybe mental ward-ish? They were under constant scrutiny? And to top it all off, there's a mysterious boy. I'm really getting into this kind of mystery thriller thing, and it seems like something totally different from Elizabeth Scott. I can't wait to find out the answers to my many, many questions!
