The Bourne Identity meets Divergent in this heart-pounding debut.
Sixteen-year-old Sarah has a rare chance at a new life. Or so the doctors tell her. She’s been undergoing a cutting-edge procedure that will render her a tabula rasa—a blank slate. Memory by memory her troubled past is being taken away.
But when her final surgery is interrupted and a team of elite soldiers invades the isolated hospital under cover of a massive blizzard, her fresh start could be her end.
Navigating familiar halls that have become a dangerous maze with the help of a teen computer hacker who’s trying to bring the hospital down for his own reasons, Sarah starts to piece together who she is and why someone would want her erased. And she won’t be silenced again.
A high-stakes thriller featuring a non-stop race for survival and a smart heroine who will risk everything, Tabula Rasa is, in short, unforgettable.
If you want a romance novel, then this is not for you! Does it have a bit of romance? I can see one forming, but not really! Does that kill this book? Um, NO! It makes it better actually.
If you’re tired of all the romance-y YA fiction/dystopian fiction out there. Here is your novel. It is action packed fun-ness. Sarah aka Angel doesn’t know who she is or where she is or anything actually. And we don’t either. As she learns, so do we. And what a messed up world she lives in!
This is definitely along the lines of the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver. Messing with people’s brains, it just shouldn’t happen. I really liked Sarah as a character. She has flaws, knows about them, but still has to learn from them. I liked the fact that there were some surprises throughout and not just one big one at the end. It made you want to keep reading to see what else is going to happen!
Can you imagine not being able to remember anything? Forgetting the bad stuff is one thing, but everything? No thank you. The bad stuff is what made me who I am today. Also, the good stuff. I like my personality. I like being a little bit awkward and nerdy. I don’t want someone to come a long and just change that.
