Book Review: False Memory

Goodreads summary:

Miranda wakes up alone on a park bench with no memory. In her panic, she releases a mysterious energy that incites pure terror in everyone around her. Except Peter, a boy who isn’t at all surprised by Miranda’s shocking ability.

Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically-altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But adjusting to her old life isn’t easy—especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can’t remember loving.

Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn’t seem to matter... when there may not be a future.

Dan Krokos’ debut is a tour-de-force of non-stop action that will leave readers begging for the next book in this bold and powerful new series.

My review:

I was really looking forward to False Memory and it did not disappoint!  This was an incredible read!

What I really loved was that the protoganist, Miranda, was so easy to relate to.  This book was written by a guy, but he captured Miranda's voice perfectly.  I really loved all the other characters too.  They were realistic and likeable.

I seriously hope this book gets made into a movie.  It would be so fun to see on the big screen!  I couldn't help picturing it as a movie as I was reading it.  The action scenes were written so well.  The sci-fi element was very interesting, too.

False Memory is truly what every book should be: the plot is compelling and full of action, there's constantly a new twist or turn with every chapter, and there's lots of character growth.  I can't think of anything I disliked.  There was always something stunning happening; whether it be the betrayal of a character, something in a character's past get the idea.  This book was full of adventure! 

This is an excellent, well-written book that was thrilling, mindblowing, and unputdownable.  Recommended for fans of Variant by Robison Wells or Legend by Marie Lu!

My rating:  9 out of 10 (4.5 stars)
