What if you forgot your identity and had to rely on other people to tell you who you were?
And what if to discover your true self, you first had to unravel a
mystery so big and terrifying you were not sure you’d survive solving
When Marshall and Elyse wake up in each other’s arms with zero
memory of how they got there or who they are, it’s the start of a long
journey through their separate pasts and shared future.
Terrified by their amnesia, the two make a pact to work together to
find the answers that could jog their missing memories. As they piece
together clues, they discover they’re in the idyllic mountain resort
town of Summer Falls, where everyone seems mysteriously happy, but as
Marshall and Elyse quickly learn, darkness lurks beneath the town’s
perfect facade. Not only is the town haunted by sinister ghosts, but
none of its living inhabitants retain bad memories of anything—not the
death of Marshall’s mom, not the hidden shame in Elyse’s family, not
even the day-to-day anguish of high school.
Lonely in this world of happy zombies, Marsh and Elyse fall into an
intense relationship...but the secrets they uncover could be the death
of this growing love—and the death of everyone, and everything, they
love in Summer Falls.
I'm kind of kicking myself for not reading Phoebe's first book Whisper yet, but I'll finally get it when I see her at the end of the month. Yay. Because this book sounds so good.
