My Name Is Memory  


I pick up any new book by Ann Brashares without hesitation and know I'll love it. The Last Summer (of You and Me) made me cry and don't even get me started on the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. Brashares writes engaging books about memorable characters and this is no exception.


This is the story about love over time. Daniel remembers all of his past lives and spends them searching for and then falling in love with Sophia (her name my change, but Daniel's love for her never does). The story goes back and forth between present day with Daniel and Lucy and with Daniel's past.

My Name is Memory reminded me of The Time Traveler's Wife. In what is actually a great compliment, My Name is Memory seemed like the young adult version of Niffinegger's masterpiece. And, if what I have read is correct, this is the beginning of a trilogy. I really hope that is true as these characters were too great for just one novel.
