The Deadening by Kerry Peresta - GIVEAWAY!
OLIVIA CALLAHAN’S quiet, orderly life is shattered when she regains consciousness in a hospital and discovers she is paralyzed and cannot remember a thing. The fragmented voices she hears around her help her piece together that an apparent assault landed her in the hospital, but nobody knows who attacked her, or why.
Now, in spite of a brain injury that has rewired her personality, Olivia is on a mission to reclaim her life. As clarity surfaces, and she starts to understand who she was, she is shocked.
Could she really have been that person?
And if so, does she want her old life back?

MY THOUGHTS -
Woohoo!!!! This book blew me away! You know when you read a book and it is soo good that every book you read for the next few months just can't compare... yeah - this was that book for me!
OK I have to admit, I have a thing for books about memory loss. I have no idea why?? Maybe in a previous lifetime I had amnesia? This one was done so well. The parts when she started to remember things, it just felt so real.
Excellent character development! I loved Olivia. I thought her character was spot on and very believable. The beginning of this book!! Oh my gosh, I was totally riveted! I could not tear myself away, even with tears flowing down my face! I don't want to give away the story but... when she goes home to be with her mom and daughters even though she can't remember who they are! 😢 Heartbreaking! I also loved her mom and the daughters. I thought they were great through the whole thing.
Perfect ending that will blow your mind!
