What would you do if you woke up one morning and couldn’t remember anything that happened to you in the past year? What if you realized you were wanted for murder and for being part of a terrorist group? What if that terrorist group wanted you dead? This is what has happened to Charlie. Having nowhere else to turn up clues to his mysterious lost year, Charlie returns to the most dangerous place for him, his hometown where it all started. There, the girlfriend he doesn’t remember and his friends decide to help him uncover the truth. With the truth well-hidden and people wanting to erase his future, will Charlie be able to save himself and keep his friends safe? What really happened during that year? One thing’s for sure, life will never be the same for Charlie again.
Action-packed from start to finish, this page turner will keep you glued to your seat. The story reads fast and the plot is intense. The characters are well-developed. Reluctant and avid readers alike will have a hard time putting this book down. I would, however, recommend reading The Last Thing I Remember before reading A Long Way Home.
