Hi! My name is Lucy and I’m in middle school at Winchester Thurston School. Besides reading I like to play tennis, dance, and draw. I love cats, I’m very creative and do a lot of crafts with my hands. I am an avid reader and read about 20-100 pages a day. If you like what I read, you probably like Harry Potter.
False Memory is the first book of the series by Dan Krokos. He has written one other book called The Planet Thieves. Dan Kronkos can write amazing fight scenes and great characters. But I suggest that if you don’t want to read a series of books, don’t read this because there will be another coming out.
False Memory is a truly captivating book. The book starts when Miranda wakes up alone in a mall with no memory. She panics, and in doing so she releases a mysterious energy that smells like roses and incites pure terror in everyone around her except Peter, a boy who isn’t at all surprised by Miranda’s strange ability. Miranda is left with no choice but to trust this stranger. The story goes on when she discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of a force of genetically-altered teens who possess awesome combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. She has a hard time going back to her old life when she finds out about Noah, her was-boyfriend. Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team, Noah, Peter, Olive, and herself, on the run–there may not be a future for their own world.
This book is truly intoxicating and I recommend it to teen girls in middle school. This book is for you, especially if you like good fight scenes and science fiction. This book might be confusing to you if you read it too fast, so I suggest not to read too quickly and let the meaning sink in. Overall, I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. With a fun mixture of guns, pills, and exploding clay metal you will fall in love with Miranda’s incredible adventure in False Memory.
