Marissa Rogers never wanted to be an alpha; beta suited her just fine. Taking charge without taking credit had always paid off: vaulting her to senior editor at a glossy magazine; keeping the peace with her critical, weight-obsessed mother; and enjoying the benefits of being best friends with gorgeous, charismatic, absolutely alpha Julia Ferrar. When Julia gets hit by a cab, she survives with minor obvious injuries, but brain damage steals her memory and alters her personality, possibly forever. As Julia struggles to regain her memory, Marissa's own equilibrium is shaken. This is a story about the power of friendship, the memories and myths that hold us back, and the delicate balance between forgiving and forgetting.

thats cool submitted by Ele Z. on August 3, 2011, 7:00am good

liked it submitted by lawrencekl57 on August 15, 2011, 5:06pm I always try to read books that are set, even partially, in Ann Arbor. That is why I read this one. I enjoyed it, but its Ann Arbor could have been any city, with minimal local references (only 3 streets, no real stores or buildings). It did bring up interesting questions about choices we make, and what influences them.
