“No one knows how to get anywhere. Google is the only one who knows anything anymore. My brain is irrelevant.”

Memento gets a Millennial makeover by debut author Sam Tschida in this smart and edgy comedy about a Kardashians-obsessed woman who wakes up in an LA hospital with amnesia, a torn party dress, and a broken iPhone and must work backward, using her Instagram account, to piece together her identity, only to discover that her life is a perfect lie.

When Mia wakes up in a Long Beach hospital with a head wound, she knows everything there is to know about the Kardashian-Jenner family but almost nothing about herself. The only items in her possession are her torn party dress–which immediately begs the question, what kind of girl parties on a Tuesday night?–a tube of Chanel lipstick, and an iPhone with a shattered screen. She might not remember where she lives but she can use her Instagram account to work backward to piece together the basic facts of her identity. Easy enough, right?

Instagram tells her that she lives in a Millennial-pink duplex that would make Kylie Jenner jealous. But when she arrives, she discovers a cute housesitter named Max who tells her the house actually belongs to JP, a French billionaire–and he has no idea how she’s connected to him. After some sleuthing, she discovers she’s the owner of a high-end matchmaking service. Could JP be one of her investors?

As Mia works backward through her Instagram to figure out who she really is–and find anyone who knows anything about her–she discovers an ugly truth buried within her perfect social media image. Is it too late to undo her lies online and become an IRL good person?

As the synopsis suggests, the story revolves around Mia who wakes up after an accident and have no clue if all of the luxurious life on her instagram is actually hers? She does not remember being quite so glamorous and popular! As the story, takes pace she meets JP, a French billionaire who might be THE ONE? However, on this journey to regain her memory, Mia ends up finding her true self instead. And a little help from the cute neuroscientist, Max just makes it better!

“Maybe losing your memory broke you loose from the Matrix so you can see everything.”

The plot of the book was quite gripping and unique. The pacing too, was pretty well balanced which kept me intrigued till the end. There were not many plot twists, which was quite okay as only a few blew me away pretty well! I mean, some of them were quite predictable but some were just sooo surprising and fun!

The characters, were not too unique but really helped the story to shine more! I found all the characters really fun and interesting to read about! They were quite relatable and make me finish the book in just one sitting!

The writing style was very easy going and simple. It was quite intriguing. I was quite surprised by the fact that this is the debut novel of  Sam Tschida. I mean, Sam really did manage to make her words speak through her brilliant writing!
