When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one. Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle.

My Review:

The first time I heard about SIA was through Netgalley and I was completely drawn to request it. The cover is beautiful in a mysterious and ethereal form, and then the synopsis is really catching. All the topics around amnesia has always interested me.

I was hooked in the story from the very first sentence. Sia faces some important issues that will make her grow as a new person. It is like she is on a quest to find who she really wants to be and who she was and decide which one is the true Sia.
The narrative is really easy to follow and I enjoyed the dialogues a lot since Grayson has been able to recreate how teenagers talk and behave nowadays.
Sia is a great character, she evolves through the novel, she learns from her mistakes and tries to change how she treated other people. She is also a complex character because she is having an internal battle to discover who she was, who she is and which Sia of those to she wants to be.
The secondary characters are really helpful and believables. I loved Kylie, he doesn´t falls for her and seeing their friendship evolve is really sweet.
I would really recommend Sia to YA who love sweet contemporary stories about self discovery. Sia is a really helpful story for young readers.
