Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac
By: Gabrielle Zevin

Sometimes, a girl needs to lose.

If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss.

She wouldn't have had to go back for the yearbook camera,
and she wouldn't have hit her head on the steps.

She wouldn't have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia.

She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might
even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place.

She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her
"Cheif". She'd get all his inside jokes, and maybe he wouldn't be so
frustrated with her forgetting things she can't possibly remember.

She'd know about her mom's new family.

She'd know about her dad's fiancee.

She wouldn't have to spend her junior year relearning
all the Frech she supposidly already knew.

She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past
and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her.
She wouldn't have wanted to kiss him back.

But Naomi picked heads.


I'm halfway through this book and I LOVE it who else has read it??

There's going to be a movie about this book.
Emma Roberts supposedly will play the main character.
I was planning on reading it, but I never did.

I'm not sure, but IMDB has it under this year.
here

And it's on the main site, here
People are saying that it's going to be Japanese.
I don't know. I don't feel like going to search this.

I haven't read that yet, it looks quite odd.

This is a great book though, my friend kept trying to get me to tell her what happened next.

Hang in there. Wink
