Book Recommendation

I recently read and enjoyed Escape from Memory by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It isn't a new book, it was published in 2003. It was recommended to me by a library patron. A ten year old girl who said it was her most favourite book. That's high praise!

Although it didn't become my favourite book, I did really like it. The story revolves around Kira, a teen living in Ohio, who becomes surrounded by mystery after being hypnotized at a slumber party. She ends up revealing unknown memories and begins speaking in an unusual language. She's no longer sure of who she is or who to trust. Fast paced and plot driven, we follow Kira as she uncovers the truth. Ages 9 and up.
