My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.
Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it’s the truth?
I went on cruise a couple weeks ago and I wanted to take some books that I could read in a day or two. This was the first one I read and it was so so. Not bad but not a thriller that blew me away. There were a couple twists in the book, one I kind of guessed but the other was like WHOA so it definitely kept my attention. I just felt to get to those twists was a little too slow and at times boring for me. However, I read it in two days poolside so for the twist and the fact that it was a quick read I would recommend it.
“Nana always said that books made better friends than people anyway. Books will take you anywhere if you let them, she used to say, and I think she was right.”
“We are all made of flesh and stars, but we all become dust in the end. Best to shine while you can.”
“Some people appear happy on the outside and you only know they’re broken inside if you listen as well as look.”
“Everyone you meet is inevitably flawed… I don’t avoid broken people because I think I’m better than them. I just don’t like looking at my own reflection.”
“We are all just ghosts of the people we hoped that we were and counterfeit replicas of the people we wanted to be.”
“Sometimes I think it’s best to say nothing at all, silence cannot be misquoted.”
