Sia by Josh Grayson (*)

When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one. Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle

This was a netgalley book, and i was desperate to read it, when i finally got it, i never thought twice about it until i looked in my kindle review folder and thought it was time to give it a go. We meet Sia who wakes up with no recollection of anything about herself, she only knows her name thanks to her ipod, she makes herself a friend as she starts life out on the streets. Finally someone realizes who she is, and she returns to the life she had, a life she no longer wants anymore.
"The world is ours in that moment, and i want it to go on forever"
This is a genuinally uplifting book about life, love and friendships, what we see is a character essentially trying to right her wrongs, something that alot of people didnt enjoy as they couldnt connect with Sia as a character for me, i enjoyed her and found myself rooting for her, i wanted her to have honestly seen sense, and realise the importance of been kind to others. Its as simple as that, and i enjoyed it. I could tell it was a young adult novel as it was quite simple in places, but thats just me as a reader, young adult books just sometimes seem a little too young, that been said - i did enjoy this.

4/5 Breakfast tea!
