What Alice Forgot - Liane Moriarty

I had a lot of fun with this book.  I don't want to give anything away, but it's about a 39 year old woman who suffers a head injury, and wakes up with no memory of the last 10 years.  So many things have changed for her, including having three kids, none of which she remembers.  Part of the fun of this book is trying to make sense of it all.  What has happened?  Who has she become?  And does she want to be this new person who has developed? 

 

It was sort of like Before I Go To Sleep except not as dark.  There were a lot of funny moments with Alice, and Moriarty creates a very relatable character through a very unrelatable circumstance.
