Review by Phil

Synopsis (Goodreads.com): Miranda wakes up alone on a park bench with no memory. In her panic, she releases a mysterious energy that incites pure terror in everyone around her. Except Peter, a boy who isn’t at all surprised by Miranda’s shocking ability.

Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically-altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But adjusting to her old life isn’t easy—especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can’t remember loving.

Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn’t seem to matter... when there may not be a future.

My Thoughts:

I got False Memory as a random Christmas gift from my mom this past year, and boy am I glad I did!

This book was a huge shocker, the plot line was cool enough, I loved having a main character that really had no clue what was going on. And the world building was also really good, I can not wait to learn more about the Roses and see what new adventures behold them.

Also while I usually really hate romance, I really enjoyed the romance in this book. Miranda and Peter work really well together, and I hope they grow closer in the next book. I also really liked Olive as a character, I don’t really know why, I just thought she was a really good secondary character that brought a sense of friendship to the book with Miranda, that the book needed.

The ending had to have been my favorite part of this book. Like any book, the reader creates a scenario in their head in how they think the book will end. But I really don’t think anyone can predict False Memory’s ending, I mean, woah.

This book is seriously underrated! Not nearly enough people know about it, and it is actually fantastic! I give False Memory 4/5 stars!
