An introcate exploration on the folly's of the human mind and how perception of an event can quickly change if you don't have all the peices of the story. A glimpse into the mind of an amnesia sufferer. This story is well written and a real page turner. I could go into further detail but don't want to spoil the story for the future reader.

3.5 stars: This intriguing novella from indie author Kathryn White offers great insight into a young woman damaged by a fractured family, flawed parents and sibling rivalry.

The clearest memory nineteen year-old Kellie Sue Jones has is the knowledge she killed her cheating ex-boyfriend and was arguing with her twin sister right before she had a car accident. When she wakes in hospital, Kellie-Sue discovers she is twenty-one with a husband and a step-son she barely knows, and a kind, supportive s

I really enjoyed this novella by Kathryn White. This is my first book by the author, and I really enjoyed her style of writing.

This story doesn't focus on Kellie Sue's amnesia so much as it does her relationship with her family and her issues. I could feel Kellie Sue's frustration in dealing with her mother and sister, and her self-esteem issues and how her family makes her feel.

Though this is a novella, I found it a pretty entertaining read, and I was curious as to find out if Kellie Sue really

What a little thriller of a story!

Kathryn White's novella Best Forgotten had me sad, teary and goosebumpy throughout most of the book. This story centres on Kellie-Sue's self esteem issues and her relationship with her mother and twin sister. I really did feel for Kellie-Sue, it was easy to sympathise with her situation and it tugged at my heart. But as the saying goes, 'everything is not always as it seems.' I was extremely happy though that it had a lovely, gorgeous, sweet ending.

In a word, confusing. I kept reading, but never really understood what the story was about

I really enjoyed this book.... It's a fairly brisk novel about a woman who is having some memory issues and there is a murder mystery... it may seem like a typical cliche right there, but I was genuinely/pleasantly surprised by the ending, and found this book overall a satisfying read. I really liked how the author was creative in certain descriptions, that always makes a book a treat for me to rrad!
