17-year-old Miranda wakes up not remembering anything except for her name and age. Luckily she's rescued from her traumatic awakening by a boy called Peter, who claims to be just like her.
Peter and Miranda are Roses - they have a psychic ability that allows them to terrify people simply by thinking about it, and they have been trained to do this in a facility together, where they have lived for years with Dr Tycast who looks over them.
Peter and Miranda are not alone though, there are two other kids who live with them and have the same abilities - Noah and Olive, only they ran away and it's up to Peter to find them.
Why did Noah and Olive run away? Why can't Miranda remember anything? And what are the Roses being trained for?
This was an interesting YA story, but there were some serious plot holes.
Miranda was an interesting character because she didn't know who she was, and it was almost as if she was learning at the same time as we were. She did seem to cope pretty well with her memory loss though, and the fact that she didn't remember meant that there were plenty of surprises ahead!
The storyline was interesting, and I liked that there were little twists. There were also some things that annoyed me though, especially things like suits of armour that at one moment deflect bullets, and then another let them straight through, and Miranda remembering nothing, but then going bra shopping (since she was supposed to remember nothing how did she remember her bra size?).
I liked the little twists in the story with regards to Miranda's memory loss, and exactly what had been going on, and although I wasn't keen on the love triangle, it did raise an interesting question over whether you should still be with someone who you were with before your memories were wiped. It was also interesting to see that without her memories Miranda seemed like a different person to who she had been previously.
I thought the ending to this one was quite good, and the little twists were good too. The end was left open for further books though.
Overall; an okay YA paranormal story, but it has it's issues.
