Maybe it’s true. Maybe I’m here because I’m a murderer.
Sarah has a rare chance at a new life. That’s what the doctors tell her. She is undergoing a cutting-edge procedure that will render her a tabula rasa — a blank slate. Her troubled past is being removed memory by memory.
But when her final surgery is interrupted and a team of elite soldiers invades the isolated hospital under the cover of a blizzard, their mission is clear: wipe Sarah out of existence.
Why would they bother with a teen delinquent unless there’s something more to her past? Something someone doesn’t want to ever see the light of day?
Familiar halls become a dangerous maze as Sarah teams up with a computer hacker who’s determined to bring down the hospital for his own reasons. The two try to piece together who she is and why someone wants her erased.
And this time she won’t be silenced.
In her own words (from the author's official website):
"I earned my MFA from Columbia University. My debut YA thriller, Tabula Rasa, and its sequel, Incognita (both from Carolrhoda Lab/Lerner), feature a girl whose memory is forcibly stripped from her and so naturally she must kick everyone’s butt in retaliation. I live with my husband and four kids in Arlington, VA."
