When Olivia awakes in a hospital bed following a near-fatal car accident, she can’t remember how she got there. She figures it’s because she was in a coma for a week, but as time goes on, she realizes she’s lost more than just the last week of her life --- she’s lost all memory of events that happened years ago. Gone is any recollection of starting or graduating high school; the prom; or her steady boyfriend Matt. Trying to figure out who she is feels impossible when everyone keeps telling her who she was.

Julianna Farnetti and Shane Cruz are remembered as the golden couple of Summit Lakes High, but Julianna’s journal tells a different story --- one with secrets that were swept away with her the night that Shane’s jeep plunged into an icy river. Reading Julianna’s journal gives Parker Frost the courage to start to really live --- and reasons to question what really happened the night of the accident.
