Chloe didn't think about it much when she nodded off in study hall on that sleepy summer day. But when she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can't remember the last six months of her life. Before, she'd been a mediocre student. Now, she's on track for valedictorian and being recruited by Ivy League schools. Before, she never had a chance with super jock Blake. Now he's her boyfriend. Before, she and Maggie were inseparable. Now her best friend won't speak to her.

What happened to her?
And why can't she remember?

What if you went to sleep and when you woke up, you had missed months of your life?  This is what happens to Chloe.  She takes a little cat nap during study hall in May and when she wakes up, six months have gone by.  Not only does she have no memories of that time, but everything in her life has changed.  Her best friend is no longer speaking to her, the guy that she had a major crush on is now her boyfriend and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. 

Once Chloe starts trying to figure out what happened to her, she finds out a lot of things that don’t quite add up.  She’s not sure exactly who she can trust or why someone would want to take her memory, but she’s determined to figure it out.

Chloe was a very easy character to like.  She’s smart, loyal and very determined once she sets her mind on something.  There is a little bit of a love triangle in this book.  On one side she’s got the guy that she has had a crush on since freshman year and on the other, she’s got the guy with the bad boy reputation but who’s actually extremely smart and caring.

I don’t want to give anything away, so I will just say that from the beginning I didn’t trust one of these guys at all.  Everything about him just screamed untrustworthy.  And too many things that Chloe discovered pointed toward him knowing something about what was happening to her. 

Overall, Six Months Later is definitely a book that I would consider a page turner.  Once I got started on it, I couldn’t stop until the very last page.  The writing is so good that I got completely immersed in Chloe’s story, I felt like I was right alongside her and trying my best to help her figure out what was happening.  If you like your books with a little mystery, then you should give this one a try.
