Description-

  • Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The One Memory of Flora Banks, read by Rosie Jones. HOW DO YOU KNOW WHO TO TRUST WHEN YOU CAN'T EVEN TRUST YOURSELF? I look at my hands. One of them says FLORA BE BRAVE. Flora has anterograde amnesia. She can't remember anything day-to-day: the joke her friend made, the instructions her parents gave her, how old she is. Then she kisses someone she shouldn't, and the next day she remembers it. It's the first time she's remembered anything since she was ten. But the boy is gone. She thinks he's moved to the Arctic. Will following him be the key to unlocking her memory? Who can she trust? THE ONE MEMORY OF FLORA BANKS is the unforgettable YA novel to take home in 2017.

About the Author-

  • THE ONE MEMORY OF FLORA BANKS published in 2017 was Emily Barr's first novel for young adults and was a global hit. Before that, she worked as a journalist in London but always hankered after a quiet room and a book to write. She went travelling for a year, which gave her an idea for a novel set in the world of backpackers in Asia. This became BACKPACK, an adult thriller which won the WH Smith New Talent Award, and she has since written eleven more adult novels published in the UK and around the world. She lives in Cornwall with her partner and their children.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    March 6, 2017
    Flora Banks, 17, has anterograde amnesia, which has left her unable to make new memories. Flora remembers her life around and before age 10, but she must use messages written on her skin, her phone, and in a diarylike notebook to remind her of who she is and to fill in the details of recent history. Everything changes when Flora retains her memory of a kiss on the beach with Drake, her best friend Paige’s boyfriend who is leaving to study in the Arctic. In her first book for teens, British author Barr creates a realistic portrayal of Flora’s condition through her repetitive and confused first-person narration (“There was a party. Drake is leaving. Paige is sad. I am seventeen. I need to be brave”). Flora fears she will never be “normal,” but Barr carefully seeds her story with hope while challenging perceptions of normalcy. Flora’s situation may be singular, but her desire for autonomy should speak loudly to teens in the midst of their own journeys into adulthood. Ages 12–up. Agent: Kate Cooper, Curtis Brown.

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Nicola Barber voices the confusion and caution of 17-year-old Flora Banks, whose memory retention ended at age 10 when she developed anterograde amnesia. Flora writes messages in notebooks and all over her skin, but Barber represents her continual frustration as she repeats phrases again and again, trying to interpret their meaning. Barber also reflects Flora's growing hope after she kisses Drake at his going-away party--and remembers much. When Drake expresses his feelings for her in emails, Flora changes from careful to courageous. She travels from England to Svalbard, an island near the North Pole, to find Drake and escape her cycle of memory losses. S.W. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
