If you're reading this you're probably wondering who you areYou are me Samantha Agatha McCoy in the not so distant future I'm writing his for you They say my memory will never be the same that I'll start forgetting things At first just a little and then a lot So I'm writing to remember Niemann Pick C NPC a rare genetic disorder that can affect cognition motor function memory and metabolism is at the heart of The Memory Book but it is Sammie's personal journey that will capture you and remain with you long after you have turned the last page of this bookWhen we first meet Samantha Sammie she has BIG plans Plans to win her debate Nationals Plans to give an amazing Valedictorian speech and most importantly plans to move to NYC and attend NYU But her NPC condition takes a turn for the worse sooner than she expected and we begin to see her deteriorate with each page The story is told through us reading her memory bookentries Sammie began her memory book as a means to hold onto her life When she has a memory episode she reads back recent entries for a clue as to where she was what she was doing etc This format gives us a uniue peek into her feelings memories and day to day life What really resonated with me was the fact that she was so young so full of hopes dreams and optimism Lara Avery did an amazing job capturing her journey and how NPC changed her both at her core and outwardly via her symptoms There were entries in the Memory Book that made me so sad They made Sammie's episodes feel so real to me as the reader I could feel her confusion anxiety and loss You can clearly see how the entries change from the ones written by the confident Sammie we met in the beginning of the book to the Sammie towards the end There were also some wonderful secondary characters in this book Sammie's entire family her siblings were so vivid uniue Stuart her longtime crush and Cooper her childhood BFF neighbor Oh how I adored Cooper There was a bit of a minor love triangle In my opinion it really made sense within the story and fit in with the overall development of some of the major characters Due to Sammie's illness feelings the expression of feelings were definitely pronouncedovert with the very real sense of running out of time Overall this was a fairly uick emotional worth your time read

review The memory book

The memory book Free read ☆ 6 â They tell me that my memory will never be the same that I'll start forgetting things At first just a little and then a lot So I'm writing to rememberSammie was always a girl with a plan graduate at the top of her class and get out of her small town as soon as humanly possible Nothing will stand in her way not even a rLl slowly start to steal her memories and then her health What she needs is a new planSo the Memory Book is born Sammie's notes to her future self a document of moments great and small It's where she'll record every perfect detail of her first date with longtime crush Stuart a brilliant young writer who is home for the summer And where she'll admit how muc. One of the best character driven books I’ve read The Memory Book is about a character who seems confidently able to voice out those crazy thoughts that an average person usually just says in her head who’s constantly hilarious highly intelligent self deprecating and always positive to a fault That’s Samantha Agatha Mc Coy even though she was never coy and had no understanding of small talk and social cues “This is why I don’t make friends easily Small talk among many other things makes me want to punch a hole in the wall” and I have fallen in love with her character Instead of succumbing to her sickness Niemann Pick Type C a kind of illness that causes dementia among many other symptoms she concocts action plans charts motivational diagrams to plan for her future “What are people who are completely screwed supposed to do Look forlornly out the window I’m not good at the feelingsy things Let’s move on” Girl doesn’t know the concept of giving up or even just taking a break and because her memory has been her super human power and the organ that has made her into the supposed genius that she is she resolved to do everything she could to hold on to what she thought was the best part of her through her “Memory Book” where she writes to her future selfI was just savoring the uniue narrative and the creative journal entries I even had to control myself from reading so fast because I wanted the story so much to last that I didn’t realize the sickness was slowly creeping in on Sammie as evident in her latter entries and it smashed my heart to pieces as much as it did her family and friends to see her shed layers of herself and yet they her family and friends prove especially Cooper my love that Sammie’s best part isn’t just her memory it’s her everything her character her love her light her confidence and compassion that make up who she is And soon my incessant laughter during the first two thirds of the book has been replaced with abandoned sobbing Oh gawdThis book is beautiful honestly hilarious so inspiring and utterly heart shattering I’m not sure if I’ll get over it Definitely one of my favorite reads this year
