"Above all, mine is a love story. And like most love stories, this one involves chance, gravity and a dash of head trauma.' When Naomi wakes up in a hospital to find that she can't remember the last three and a half years of her life, she has a lot to discover about herself. But she also has a unique chance to reinvent herself - after all, some things are best forgotten."
When Naomi tries to piece back the fragments of the last three and a half years of her life, she discovers a lot. She has a boyfriend but can't remember him, her mother and father are divorced and she has forgotten that she is supposed to hate her mother. She also has a group of friends which simply doesn't seem that attractive anymore, and despite having meticulously kept a diary, she only mentioned what she ate every day in it. But it's not all bad, because when a girl loses three and a half years she gets a chance to reinvent herself. After all, who is to say that everything has to be the same?
