Scarlett doesn’t remember anything before the age of five. Her parents say it’s from the trauma of seeing her house burn down, and she accepts the life they’ve created for her without question—until a car accident causes Scarlett to start remembering pieces of an unfamiliar past.

When a new guy moves into town, Scarlett feels an instant spark. But Noah knows the truth of Scarlett’s past, and he’s determined to shield her from it...because Scarlett grew up in a cult called Eternal Light, controlled by her biological parents.

My Review
She can't remember anything before the age of four. I didn't know most people have memories that early. I mean I don't remeber much from the age of five. I dont feel weird about it. I never even thought anything was strange about it. Turns out that she had blocked out the memories.

The story line is a good one. I can see this as a Lifetime movie. Girl was in a cult and boy befriends girl in order to lure her back to the cult. I wasn't moved or invested in the characters at all. The book wasn't bad or even all that boring. It was just that there wasn't anything about the characters hat made me want to care one way or the other. It ends leaving room for a book two. Final thought - Quick but flatlined. 

Have you read this book? How was it for you?
