Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Published: August 4, 2015
Book Summary (Per NetGalley)
Of course, the dress was white. This is what I’m supposed to die in, I thought. Not many people knew what their last outfit would be. 
I pulled it over my head. It fit me perfectly. It had long, loose fitting sleeves, a modest neckline, and waves of material on the skirt. I hated it.
There were no shoes, and I was afraid I’d have to run through the forest barefoot but there weren’t a lot of options. Besides, I’d run barefoot over a bed of nails to get away.
“Scarlett, are you ready?” he called.
I looked in the mirror and took a deep breath. Time to fight for my life.

Scarlett Garner doesn’t remember anything before the age of four—until a car accident changes everything. She starts to remember pieces of a past that frighten her. A past her parents hid from her…and a secret that could get her killed.

My Thoughts
The summary about the book is fantastic and spot on for what the reader can expect.  Overall this was a good read, but I did not enjoy the characters.  I was not able to really relate to any of them since I hope I would make different decisions then essentially everyone that was in the book.  However, the writing style and descriptive language helped create the story come to life and take form in my mind.  While I would not recommend this book to any specific groups or friends, I would try another book from this author as her style and vocabulary were enjoyable.
