This holiday season we are going to review approximately one book per day so that it gives people a chance to do their own research on the books and authors by using the links provided and not miss out by being bombarded by a whole lot at once.

The purpose is to share with others sources of information and/or entertainment to aid with relaxing as people take some time off work.

Each post is set out with the name of who submitted it, the name of the book and author and a short review in the form of a comment from whoever submitted it.

The One Memory of Flora Banks

By Emily Barr

Anne said: “An amazing book about a girl with the most unusual affliction”

Amazon said: “Seventeen-year-old Flora Banks has no short-term memory. Her mind resets itself several times a day, and has since the age of ten, when the tumor that was removed from Flora’s brain took with it her ability to make new memories. That is, until she kisses Drake, her best friend’s boyfriend, the night before he leaves town. Miraculously, this one memory breaks through Flora’s fractured mind, and sticks. Flora is convinced that Drake is responsible for restoring her memory and making her whole again. So, when an encouraging email from Drake suggests she meet him on the other side of the world—in Svalbard, Norway—Flora knows with certainty that this is the first step toward reclaiming her life.”
