The One Memory of Flora Banks




You always remember your first kiss. Flora remembers nothing else. A novel of heart-stopping suspense and haunting obsession.

I look at my hands. One of them says 'FLORA be brave'. I am Flora.

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 a boy - her first kiss - and the next day she remembers it. The first time she's remembered anything since she was ten.

But the boy is gone.

Desperate to hold onto the memory and feelings of love, she sets off to the Arctic to find him.

Why can she remember Drake? Could he be the key to everything else she's forgotten?

About the author

Emily Barr

Emily Barr 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. The One Memory of Flora Banks is her first novel for young adults. She lives in Cornwall with her partner and their children.
