The novel Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards is about a high school girl named Chloe who loses six months of her memory. When Chloe was in school in May, everything was normal, but then she fell asleep in study hall and woke up in mid November.
Now, Chloe is struggling to get her memory back, and find out what, or who, took her memories. As Chloe finds more and more pieces of her memory, things get more and more confusing, and it doesn’t help Chloe that her best friend Maggie is mad at her for a reason that Chloe cant even remember.
I really enjoyed this book. I like how the author developed the plot. I think it was clever for the author to only reveal certain parts of Chloe’s memory, and to give hints that certain people know what happened, but not reveal what happened to Chloe until the book was ready. I loved how the author had suspense in the book because she only revealed certain details.
The book had a lot of action, especially during the climax, and it kept me guessing about what the outcome would be. The book was full of suspense, romance, and thrilling events.
I would recommend this book to people ages 12 to 16. The book has a little romance between Chloe and her love interest, so that’s why people younger than 12 might not like it. This book was really good, and I would definitely recommend it.
