At seventeen, Adam Rhodes is famous, living on his own, and in a downward spiral since he lost the girl he loved. Marybeth stage name Sunshine was his best friend from the days they were foster kids; then she was his girlfriend and his band mate. But since her accidental death, he's been drinking to deal with the memories. Until one day, an unexpected visitor, Dr. Elloran, presents Adam with a proposition that just might save him from himself. Using breakthrough cloning and memory-implantation techniques, Dr. Elloran and the scientists at Project Orpheus want to resurrect Marybeth, and they need Adam to "donate" intimate memories of his life with her. The memory retrieval process forces Adam to relive his life with Marybeth and the devastating path that brought them both to fame. Along the way, he must confront not only the circumstances of her death but also his growing relationship with the mysterious Genevieve, daughter of Project Orpheus's founder. As the process sweeps Adam and Marybeth ever closer to reliving the tragedy that destroyed them, Adam must decide how far he'll go to save her."

A Thought Provoking Read

Resurrecting Sunshine is my favorite type of books--it's a story that makes you think. And it lingers with you long after you've closed the cover. On it's surface, Adam may seem like he's caught in the middle of a debate about the ethics of cloning (interesting in and of itself) but the questions raised by Koosis are much more complicated than that. As we follow the story of Sunshine's life and death, we being to ask ourselves about second chances, forgiveness, acceptance and love. And as it always happens with the most thought provoking books--the answers will often surprise you. Can't wait to see what Koosis writes next. I'm a fan.
