What Alice Forgot | by Liane Moriarty

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
(Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam, 2011, 432 pages)

I know that Sadie just finished this, but since great minds think alike I had it waiting on my nightstand at home at the same time! I enjoyed this book a lot more than I’d anticipated.

Alice is a 39-year-old mother of three. One morning she’s working out at the gym when she falls and hits her head. When she comes to she’s convinced that she’s 29 and doesn’t understand what she was doing at the gym in the first place. The knock on the head jolted her memory and she has somehow lost 10 years of her life. Needless to say this causes a number of problems. Relationships in her life are strained and she doesn’t understand why. She doesn’t remember giving birth to any of her three children, and she’s shocked to find out that she and her husband are separated (separated?! from the love of her life?! she doesn’t believe it…)

What Alice Forgot takes us on the journey with Alice as she tries to figure out who her 39-year-old self is through the eyes of her 29-year-old-self. You quickly find yourself caring about the characters in this story and I had a hard time putting it down because I was eager to see how things would turn out.
