CharactersMatt -Carolyn’s boyfriend Carolyn – matt’s girlfriend Fi ,debs and rosalie- lexi’s bestfriends Loser dave – lexi’s boyfriendDr. Harman – one of the resident neurologist Nicole- specialist nurseMaureen – nurseDiana and Garth – tainee doctorsEric – the one that she think her husbandBryon – lexi’s bossJon – lexi’s office mate Setting*London Hospital after the accident.* Lexi is working in a flooring department of Deller Carpets* car before the accident Plot:Lexi wakes up in the hospital, slightly surprised that her tumble down the stairs after a night on the town with her girlfriends landed her there. Then the truth is discerned...Lexi is not the 25-year-old singleton she thought she was, she's actually 28 and suffering from an odd bout of amnesia following a car crash. Lexi is even more surprised that in the last three years she's aggressively moved up the corporate food chain, has transformed into a skinnier, slicker version of her former self, and lives in a to-die-for flat with her gorgeous, successful husband. But of course, not everything is peachy keen in Lexi's world as she realizes the major trade-offs she's made in exchange for this seemingly cushy lifestyle, and struggles to get at least one of her old lives back. What happens if you wake up one morning and realize that all of your dreams have magically come true overnight? That’s what happens to Lexi Smart. She wakes up in a hospital one to find that she doesn’t recognize herself – literally. The frizzy hair is gone, replaced by a sleek, shiny mane, and the lifelong nickname “Snaggletooth” just doesn’t apply anymore…and why do her lips look suspiciously plumper? She doesn’t even believe the Louis Vuitton handbag that the nurse hands her is actually hers. Why? Because Lexi has no memory of the past three years. In her mind, she’s a struggling assistant manager at a flooring company who just had a typical crazy night out with her girlfriends in 2004. In reality, she’s actually a member of the Board of Directors of that flooring company and is waking up from a minor car accident in 2007. Lexi finds that she has everything she has ever wanted: she is beautiful, married to a ridiculously good-looking guy, makes a lot of money, and lives in the most beautiful loft she has ever seen. So what if everyone at the office not-so-secretly wishes she hadn’t recovered from the car accident? And so what if her oldest friends don’t want anything to do with her anymore? And does it really matter if her new husband scolds her like a child for not putting her shoes away properly? Remember Me?  is the tale of Lexi’s quest to discover what happened to her during those three years to turn her into a person whom she doesn’t physically or emotionally recognize, and what she does when she finds out that her new life may not be as picture perfect as it seems. Conflict:Althrough the book, it was a current struggle for her to understand herself and her past choices (that she didn't remember)she wanted really badly to remember but she had to wait for her mind to want to let go of her memories (if it ever was going to) she couldn't force it, she had to get on for the ride. the book was very well written, i mean you could feel her anxiety at herself: should she trust her friends? are they saying the truth? could she really have done all those horrible things? i don't think it couldn't have been Lexi vs. society because it really wasn't the world that changed the most. It was her, she turned into someone she didn't recognize and couldn't live with. The story gets even more involved when we find out that Lexi's last memory is indeed from three years earlier, but that the reason she's in the hospital is because of a very recent car accident. Somehow her brain injury jumps her memory back three years and it was during those three years that she consciously made all the changes in her life. She just doesn't remember how or why. She decides to jump right in, thinking that if she plays along, hopefully her memory will return. So she moves in with her gorgeous husband, makes plans to visit her job and see her friends. She just can't understand why she's no longer tight with the girls at work that she used to always hang out with. She even meets a man that seems to know her more than he should and before long, the sparks begin to fly!  Theme: The message of the novel is for us to know what would happened to us if we have an amnesia so that in order for us as a reader to take care of our self so that it would not happen to us. As a personal aside, after reading this book description, I actually gasped! This is ME! Well No, not really but this book really meant something to me personally, as I too, woke up in the hospital after a bump to the had after falling down the stairs and I had no recollection of it either - my life hadn't changed much - except I did lose almost 10 pounds (feeding tubes are great - there's practically no fat pumped in there!) Fortunately, all my important memories are still intact, but it was so intriguing to me when I saw the description of this book that I just had to read it and I'm so glad that I did! Everyone can enjoy this tale; even if you haven't found yourself in Lexi's shoes (or mine!) because the story speaks to everyone about the perils of wanting "the good life" and what can happen as you discover that maybe, just maybe you may already have it! Readers are treated to a mystery as Lexi takes on the task of discovering who she is and what is really important to her - she learns just what events sparked the tremendous changes in her life and as she gets to know herself, she discovers who she really wants to be. We ride along with Lexi as she takes on challenges and wonder if she'll ever regain her memory and if or when she does, how will it change her life?  Reflection: * “The thing with giving up is you never know. You never know whether you could have done the job. And I'm sick of not knowing about my life.”
