Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

Chapter 1  

I didn’t recognize the name on the street sign. Nothing about the rural road looked familiar or 
friendly. Tall, imposing trees and overgrown weeds choked the front of the dilapidated home. 
Windows were boarded up. There was a gaping hole where the front door had been. I shivered, 
wanting to be far away from here…wherever here was. 
Walking felt harder than it should be, and I stumbled off the chilly asphalt, wincing as 
sharp gravel dug into my feet. 
My bare feet? 
I stopped and looked down. Chipped pink nail polish peeked through the dirt…and blood. 
Mud caked the legs of my pants, leaving the hems stiff. It made sense, seeing as how I wasn’t 
wearing any shoes, but the blood…I didn’t understand why there was blood staining the knees of 
my jeans. 
My vision clouded and dulled, as if a gray film had been dropped over my eyes. As I 
stared at the weathered asphalt under my feet, large and smooth rocks replaced the tiny stones. 
Something dark and oily seeped over the rocks, slipping through the cracks. 
Sucking in a sharp gasp, I blinked and the image was gone. 
Hands trembling, I raised them. They were also covered with dirt and scratches. My nails 
were broken, bloodied. A silver ring wrapped, encased in soil, around my thumb. Air froze in my 
chest as my gaze crawled over my arms. The sleeves of my sweater were torn, revealing pale 
flesh covered in bruises and gashes. My legs started to shake as I swayed forward. I tried to 
remember how this had happened, but my head was empty—a black void where nothing existed. 
A car drove by, coasting to a stop a few feet in front of me. Somewhere in the trenches of 
my subconscious, I recognized the flashing red and blue lights as a source of safety. Elegantly 
scrawled along the black-and-gray side of the cruiser were the words ADAMS COUNTY SHERIFF’S 
Adams County? A flash of familiarity came and went. 
The driver’s door opened, and a deputy stepped out. He said something into the radio on 
his shoulder before he looked at me.
