Forgetting changed her. Remembering might destroy her. 

Chloe didn't think about it much when she nodded off in study hall on that sleepy summer day. But when she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can't remember the last six months of her life. Before, she'd been a mediocre student. Now, she's on track for valedictorian and being recruited by Ivy League schools. Before, she never had a chance with super jock Blake. Now he's her boyfriend. Before, she and Maggie were inseparable. Now her best friend won't speak to her.

What happened to her?

And why can't she remember?

This book has such an interesting premise.  I loved how I was instantly drawn right into the story.  It was intense and forward moving the whole time.  I was literally compelled to keep reading.  I love when a book does that to me.

How freaky would it be to just wake up one day and find that your whole world had changed?  Crazy stuff.  Chloe is a smart girl though.  I like how she thinks about things and tries to figure out what's going on.  It's the gut feeling that things just aren't right that she depends on.  Even though she is confused out of her mind, she keeps trying and struggling and following her gut feelings.  I love how hard she works to try to salvage a friendship with her best friend, Maggie.

The good thing about this book was that we learned things right along with Chloe.  I felt confused and frightened and annoyed right along with her.  It was intense and I really liked that.  Oh, the mystery!

I haven't read a book quite like this before.  I flew through the book quickly because I just had to know and it isn't a short book by any means.  :)

My one problem with the book is the language.  There is quite a bit of swearing, including the F word.  Not a fan of the F word, especially in YA books.  That's just me and my personal opinion though.  If I could take out all the swearing, I would give this book 5 stars.  

You can find Six Months Later at the following places:

Natalie D. Richards won her first writing competition in the second grade with her short story about Barbara Frances Bizzlefishes (who wouldn't dare do the dishes.)  She later misplaced her writing dreams in a maze of cubicles and general office drudgery. Natalie never forgot about Barbara or those dishes, and eventually she found her way back to storytelling, following the genre of her heart, teen fiction.  When she's not writing or shopping her manuscripts, you can probably find her wading through the towers of dog-eared paperbacks that have taken over her bedroom. Natalie lives in Ohio with her amazing husband and their three children, who inspire her every day to stick with her dreams.
