When Sam first met Jamie in Sterling, she was homeless, dressed in rags, and a mess. She had no memory of her parents or where she came from. Jamie couldn’t imagine throwing Sam back out on the street, so Jamie took her in and made her part of the family. Now, with Jamie gone on vacation, Sam is left to her own devices.
Sam is homeschooled and suspects Drake, her teacher, and Derek, his son, of spying on her house. She would like to know why, but, before her suspicions are confirmed, Sam casts a memory spell to help her piece together her past.
To add to her confusion, a gang of kids tempts her into their group. She’s never had friends – at least not any she can remember. Her self-doubt gets in the way as she struggles to figure out how to fit in.
Then Sam’s life really explodes! The spell worked, and her memories are coming back at the most inconvenient times. She starts dating a guy she really likes, and she soon realizes she has too many secrets she needs to keep from everybody she knows.
As Sam tries to juggle these new elements in her life, Drake continues to pile on the homework, leaving her no time for her new friends, her new boyfriend, the memories conjured by her spell, or time to figure out why Drake is so interested in her house.
Will the cobwebs of Sam’s past get the best of her?
Will Sam be able to figure out what is going on in time? Or will Drake get the upper hand?
Review: 5 Stars Sam is struggling, even more so now that she has a family. She’s just dealing with not remembering parts of her life. Thompson writes this story well, and in different POVs, it brings a unique look into Sam’s life. With spells and magic, and new friends, Sam is a new person. She grows as a character and has a backstory that is a major part of the current story. I’m a fan of Thompson, and this book is the best one of hers that I’ve read so far.
