it was ok

Eh. I thought that the premise of this book was a good one: a drug company has a fire, thus exposing the members of the community to a chemical that opens up all kinds of memories in their brains.

The follow-through was just poor. I felt like the writing was weak and the story wasn't really 'full' enough. The characters were sort of cliche and there were story lines that didn't need to exist and some that weren't really followed up on.

I feel like this book could have comfortably been 70 pages shorter and just chopped all the crap or 100 pages longer and really followed through with what she started.

It is an alright first novel. A quick read.

Bill Wehrmacher I think the book could have been 70 pages total... of course I am only to page 85.
