The only survivor of a plane crash is a sixteen-year-old girl who can’t remember boarding the plane, or anything else about herself either. Unfamiliar with the world around her, Seraphina is taken in by a family who attempts to acclimate her to society. When a strange boy shows up claiming to know her and vowing to take her away, Seraphina is not sure whether to trust him, but he seems to be the key to remembering who she is and where she came from. The suspense immediately pulls you in and the author keeps you guessing until the end. The pacing is quick and there are plenty of twists to keep you hooked!
