Chloe didn't think about it much when she nodded off in study hall on that sleepy summer day. But when she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can't remember the last six months of her life. Before, she'd been a mediocre student. Now, she's on track for valedictorian and being recruited by Ivy League schools. Before, she never had a chance with super jock Blake. Now he's her boyfriend. Before, she and Maggie were inseparable. Now her best friend won't speak to her.

What happened to her?

And why can't she remember?

My Review: 
Picture this: You wake up from a nap, and suddenly you can't remember the last 6 months of your life. You're bleeding, have a bump on your head, and suddenly the most popular boy in school that you have been crushing on for years, is running up,to console you and and out of a sudden kisses you and calls himself your boyfriend. But for some reason you do not get those butterfly-feeling you expected to have. Instead you find yourself yearning for the touch of another boy, someone who you would never find yourself pinning over six month before. Your love life is not the only thing to have changed. Magically you are now the top of your class and have received a ridiculously high score on the SATs. You are popular and have a wide new group of friends.

But things are not all bright and toasty, there are some things that are not so super great. Your best friend since when you were in diapers is not longer speaking to you. And even though  you have everything you have ever wanted, this new bf, new friends and new academic achievements screams some major falsehood. And well not remembering the last six months of your life and how all these changes seemed to come about doesn't really help either. What would you do?

These are the challenges that Chloe faces. As must as she has always dreamed up being with Blake, she lizes that he is not everything that she expected him to be, and that he may even be dangerous. Chloe finds herself longing for Adam, even though he has a criminal record and everyone is warning her away from him. But there is something about Adam that she can't stay away form, especially since his touch is the only thing that allows her to have glimpses of what has happened to her in the last six months. Will she be able to recover her memories and find out what and why and specially whom caused them to disappear. Will she able to reconcile her friendship with Maggie, her childhood best friend. And who will be the hero at the end of the tunnel holding her hand?

All I have to say is that I freakin' loved this book. Even though I am many years passed my high school days, I could really understand the tough situation Chloe faces in this book. Who wouldn't want to be with the high school heart throb and be the top of their class? But as the story unraveled I found myself drawn into the story and almost as determined to as Chloe to find out answers. I have to admit that I was not expected any of the twists and turns this story takes. The last few chapters of this book are absolutely amazing and keep you he edge of your seat to find out whats going to happen next. This story was a lot more action packed that I was expecting. I would have to say that my favorite aspect of the story line was Chloe's friendship with Maggie and the struggles their friendship faces, as Chloe knows she did something to betray Maggie, but as she has no memory of what happened, she can not figure out how to fix what she did or if their friendship if even salvageable. And yes than their is ADAM, I do not think I can explain how amazing Adam is, but I really liked how Romily Bernard - author of FIND ME, fangirls about him. So keep on reading to hear more about Adam's amazing qualities!

I’m still getting used to this whole author gig. Yeah, I have a book coming out, but, in real life, I spend more time talking about other people’s books than I do my own. I guess it’s because I think of myself as a reader first and a writer second. I have a serious fangirl bookshimmy, a TBR pile that’s almost as tall as I am, and I will flat cut someone if he/she stands between a new Rainbow Rowell book and me.
In some ways, I hope that never disappears. Well, losing the violent streak would probably relieve everyone, but how else would I keep Boy Genius on his toes?
I’m always excited to find a great book and I was super lucky to score Natalie Richards’s debut, SIX MONTHS LATER.
First reasons to love? Who wouldn’t want to wake up and realize you’re top of your high school class, dating your longtime crush, and en route to an Ivy League university? Exactly. No one. And that’s what I loved about it. Richards gave us this awesome fantasy…and then began to pick it apart in a very creepy way.
Second reason I loved SIX MONTHS LATER? Adam. Let’s say it again. Adam. If you like your heroes skewed toward bad boy, this one’s for you. Bad boys can be hit or miss for me, but I thought Adam was spot on. He’s the one point in Chloe’s reinvented life that should feel entirely off and yet, every time they’re together, it feels entirely right.
Third reason? I heart Chloe. She freaks out, rolls with the punches, and uses her head to piece together what happened. I’m going to make the whole thing sound cheesy, but Chloe instinctively gets that it’s the people in your life who make it perfect. It’s not about having the right boyfriend, the right test scores, and the right college, but about the people who make you feel whole. It’s what gives a seriously creepy book a whole new layer.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. As always, I’m beyond grateful to the FFBC for having me today. Thanks a million. I hope you enjoyed the post and I hope you enjoy SIX MONTHS LATER and FIND ME!!

At seven, Natalie D. Richards wrote about Barbara Frances Bizzlefishes (who wouldn't dare do the dishes.) Now she writes about awesome girls, broody boys, and all things dark and creepy. Natalie lives in Ohio (Go Bucks!) with her techno-wiz husband, three amazing kids, and a seventy pound dust-mop who swears he's the family dog. Her psychological thriller, Six Months Later, will be released in October 1, 2013 by Sourcebooks Fire. Until then, you'll probably find her writing her next book or trying to wade through the towers of dog-eared paperbacks that have taken over her bedroom.
