How do you know who to trust... 

...when you don't even know who you are?

You are outside your front door.

There are strangers in your house.

Then you realise. You can't remember your name.
She arrived at the train station after a difficult week at work. Her bag had been stolen, and with it, her identity. Her whole life was in there – passport, wallet, house key. When she tried to report the theft, she couldn't remember her own name. All she knew was her own address.
Now she's outside Tony and Laura's front door. She says she lives in their home. They say they have never met her before.
One of them is lying.

Review:  This is an AMAZING story! I wish it was receiving more buzz online, and that more of the readers I know were reading it. It absolutely deserves to be a best-seller and to be made into a movie.

This is one of those stories that draws you in from the very beginning. With a first line like "I can't remember my own name," you just KNOW it has tons of potential.

There are so many twists and turns to the plot that I was always coming up with a new theory--and I never managed to get it entirely right.

The story is told from several different perspectives, which adds to the twistiness of the plot. It is sometimes difficult to know which characters are telling the truth and which are lying, and sometimes you may want to shake the main character for her life choices. But it is definitely worth reading this book from beginning to end.

Rating: 4 stars
