Seventeen-year-old Chloe Spinnaker wants to be a psychologist, but her crap grades are trapping her into a future serving up fast food. She vows to change her slacker ways, but with only six days of her junior year left, it’s going to take nothing short of a miracle. When Chloe nods off in Study Hall, she wakes up six months later, and a miracle is exactly what she gets.

Chloe can’t remember a thing about the last six months, but her life has changed in all the right ways. She’s got the grades she needs, a gorgeous boyfriend, and all the popularity she can handle.

Everything about her world seems perfect, except that her best friend Maggie isn’t speaking to her. Well, that and her athlete boyfriend Blake gives her the creeps.  Worse still, Chloe can’t stop thinking about resident bad-boy, Adam Reed, a guy who definitely doesn’t belong in her new improved life.

Despite the flaws, Chloe has everything she ever wanted, and she’s not about to blow it over a little case of amnesia, weird boyfriend vibes, or a few misplaced feelings for Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Delinquent. She decides to keep her secret, hoping to fill in the blanks as she goes.

Chloe’s grand plans unravel fast when everything from her new hairstyle to her school schedule proves to be a challenge. She soon wonders if her fast-forwarded life is any improvement over the one she left behind. Her worry hits a boiling point when she discovers that a fellow junior, Julien, displayed similar symptoms just before disappearing in an unlikely cross-country move. Something tells Chloe that she knows what really happened to Julien. Suddenly Chloe’s lost memories seem too important to ignore. But remembering the truth could be more dangerous than she knows…
