Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac

5559333If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss.
She wouldn’t have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn’t have hit her head on the steps.
She wouldn’t have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia.
She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place.
She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her “Chief.” She’d get all his inside jokes, and maybe he wouldn’t be so frustrated with her for forgetting things she can’t possibly remember.
She’d know about her mom’s new family.
She’d know about her dad’s fiancée.
She wouldn’t have to spend her junior year relearning all the French she supposedly knew already.
She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her.
She wouldn’t have wanted to kiss him back.
But Naomi picked heads.
This book wasn't quite what I thought it was going to be. It was good, I understand the hype that's its been getting but I just thought it was going to be a little bit different then it was. I Really liked Naomi as a character, even though she was a little annoying at times. Another thing was how she had so many different love interest throughout the book. Which I understand why, but I then had a hard time decided which guy I liked better. Overall i enjoyed it, I was hoping it was going to be a little more fast paced, but its a good shorter read for those who want a deeper book. But it could have been a little deeper then it was, I was looking for a deep read that would give way to some very deep thoughtful thinking and this just didn't cut it as far as that goes. But i still enjoyed it.
