Publisher's Summary

Listen. All the world forgets me. First my face, then my voice, then the consequences of my deeds. So listen. Remember me.
My name is Hope Ardern, and you won't know who I am. We've met before - a thousand times. I am the girl the world forgets. It started when I was 16 years old. A slow declining, an isolation, one piece at a time. A father forgetting to drive me to school. A mother setting the table for three, not four. A teacher who forgets to chase my missing homework. A friend who looks straight through me and sees a stranger.
No matter what I do, the words I say, the people I hurt, the crimes I commit - you will never remember who I am. That makes my life tricky. It also makes me dangerous....
This is the tale of a girl no one remembers, and her story will stay with you forever.
