Destiny awakes with amnesia. She’d been driving on a wet road, about to leave flowers at a memorial marker of a deceased classmate, when she almost met that same fate.
Her mother, Mildred, is beyond restrictive, and she doesn’t want Destiny to have her cellphone back. A nurse sneaks it into her room, but it’s useless without the passcode. After her hospital stay, her mother becomes physically abusive.
Destiny and the boy she’s developing feelings for decide to drive around to spark her memory. She’s positive she crashed near a memorial marker. When they find the place in question, and when Destiny remembers her phone’s passcode, nothing is as it seems—and Mildred is crazier than she first thought.

I saw this book on Netgalley, and as much as the description lured me in, I couldn’t help but give it 3 stars.
The book tells the story of Destiny, a 17 year old girl who wakes up in hospital suffering from amnesia.
I was pretty excited about this story because the description sounded so interesting and had me intrigued but honestly…the plot was easy and predictable. Also it was such a fast and quick read,
Destiny is a good, very trusting and innocent character. Her relationship with Gabriel becomes addictive the more you read!! I enjoyed their relationship at the end.
I had an issue with the mother’s behavior..she obviously got problems.
If you’re looking for an easy and enjoyable, read, give this young adult book a try.
