You take it for granted. Waking up. Going to school, talking to your friends. Watching a show on television or reading a book or going out to lunch. You take for granted going to sleep at night, getting up the next day, and remembering everything that happened to you before you closed your eyes. You live and you remember. Me, I live and I forget. But now—now I am remembering. For all of her seventeen years, Molly feels like she’s missed bits and pieces of her life. Now, she’s figuring out why. Now, she’s remembering her own secrets. And in doing so, Molly uncovers the separate life she seems to have led…and the love that she can’t let go. The Half Life of Molly Pierce is a suspenseful, evocative psychological mystery about uncovering the secrets of our pasts, facing the unknowns of our futures, and accepting our whole selves.

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced readers copy just two days ago. Yes. I finished this book so fast because it was that good. But first let me get to the review. Ok. I will not lie to you guys when I say that this book was a hell of a lot confusing in the beginning. It starts of with the heroine, Molly, coming to in her car and driving. Only she has no idea when she got there. And this is not the first time this has happened to her. Recently Molly has been missing blocks of time and she has no idea what the hell happened. Then Molly is driving home and she sees a boy on a motorcycle driving too fast. She knows what is going to happen before it does--she knows that he is going to crash. But then she realizes something--the boy was trying to catch up to her--but why? Then the inevitable happens and the boy hits the back of a car and goes flying over her car right in front of her car and she almost hits him. She gets out and cradles his head and takes off his helmet. The boy seems to know her though, this boy calls her by a strange name--Mabel. She thinks it's a case of mistaken identity until the boy calls her Molly. And so begins the awesomely strange book that is the Half Life of Molly Pierce. I also have to admit something else though. The names in this book were kind of stupid. If they were normal names I think I would have liked this book a lot more which sounds weird but that is just me. For example, Molly's best friend is named Erie. Like the canal. Why not name her Erica? And her other best friend is Luka. With a k. Why not just Luca? And don't get me started on the strange boys that Molly is beginning to remember names. The boy on the motorcycle is named -- get ready -- Lyle and his brother is named Sayer. Sorry for being weird but that is just me. And let's get on with this review. Ok. So after seeing Lyle get killed on the motorcycle she starts to feel a weird connection with his brother. Like they have attraction with each other, or history. But how can that be with someone you just met? But then Molly starts to remember everything. She remembers Sayer and Lyle. She loved them both, one as a friend and one as a lover. It turns out that Molly's blackouts were from her alter ego Mabel who led a different life that Molly wasn't aware of until the memories start to pour out. I feel as if I am giving way too much away so you guys will have to read it for yourself when it comes out July eighth. It sounds weird but it is so good and amazing. I was hooked from the first page and I promise that you guys will be too! I give this book 4 1/2 stars -- I took a half off because of the names ^ - ^
