Harper is used to the protestors constantly camping outside her home. Afterall, her father runs the company trademarking the “Memtex” procedure to wipe away sad memories, and plenty of people think it shouldn’t be legal. When Harper suffers an unexpected loss one day, she’s shocked that her father wouldn’t let her get the procedure, so she finds a way to get it without his approval. Soon afterwards, she begins getting plagued by strange symptoms, including visions of a woman who is both a stranger and familiar at the same time. Harper starts to wonder if she is being delusional, or if this woman was actually part of her memories.
Trying to uncover the truth on Memtex, Harper is joined by Neil, a protester who insists that he has his own reasons for needing answers about the dangers of the procedure. What she eventually finds could uproot all she’d ever believed her entire life…
I think this book is kind of underrated. It has a brilliant idea, about the ability to manipulate people’s memories. If all sadness can be taken away from you, would you be a better person? Would that actually be better for you? How much are you inclined to lose, and how bad should the memories be for you to want to erase them?
