OMG! I got this as a physical ARC. I dunno why the paperback is due out in January of next year. Maybe I missed something, maybe it's Pandemic!

Aside from some mild suspension of disbelief here and there, I really, really liked this story in the end. I was a little skeptical (hospitals really like getting paid!) that they'd let her go, especially since she really did not remember her name. But, I guess hospitals are weird like that. (something something, more repeat business?) Anyway, I loved the shenanigans that went on. It was a hilarious, light romp through the endless treck of "WHO AM I, SIRI!", and it felt pretty authentic to Mia as a character. I really couldn't stop laughing.

The characters were relatable. I liked all of them. They felt real. Except for Kobra. But also, Kobra, soo.

Loved the ending, too.

Overall, I'm somewhat sad that only the Kindle version is out. (unless Goodreads messed it up, right now the paperback is being noted as releasing may 2021!). It was a hilrious romp, though, and I'll definitely be recommending it to people! ( )

I picked up this book because it sounded like a "good" time. When I say this I mean "funny". I did not laugh once while reading this book. This is unfortunate. There is something about this book that could have been something.

One of the issues is that I found Mia to be boring. There was nothing intriguing about her or her supposed life. However, Max was cool. I found him to be likable. I read the first half of this book in a really fast fashion and than put it down and walked away from it for a while. When I did pick this book back up; my feelings towards it did not change. In fact, I found myself sort of skimming through the last half of the book. Sadly, Siri could not have helped save this book. ( )

Mia wakes up in the hospital with a head wound, amnesia, and no ID of any kind. She only learns her name because Siri tells her. But, having woken up, and there being nothing "medically wrong" with her, her doctors discharge her. She figure out where she lives by "triangulating" from the backgrounds of her Instagram posts, and fortunately the key in her clutch fits in the lock of the place she winds up, which turns out to be her boyfriend's place, which is being house-sat by a very cute neuroscientist. Ready for a deep breath, yet? What follows is a somewhat madcap adventure, suitable for the Pink Panther, except that Inspector Clouseau (as portrayed by either Petter Sellers or Steve Martin) is both smarter and more endearing) than Mia.

Watching Mia try to figure out her life, and who caused her head injury is quite a page-turner. Mia's voice is very real, as the author has abandoned many writing conventions for a very colloquial tone. It works, though. Mia's discomfort as glimpses of who she was before amnesia also feel very authentic.

What doesn't work is the actual plot. In the interests of not giving away any spoilers, I can't reveal most of the actual problems, although they definitely start with Mia being released from the hospital before she even knows her own last name, but suffice it to say that a lot of Mia's conclusions are leaps, and a lot of things don't hang together even after she figures everything out. If you can move beyond those issues, this is a fun read, and presents some thoughtful questions about how much of identity is immutable. ( )

I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher (Quirk Books) in exchange for an honest review.
I just want to start off by saying that you have to suspend your disbelief to fully enjoy this book. If you go into the book thinking it’s going to be super realistic, you’re not going to enjoy it. There are lot of things that are pretty unbelievable. So if you read this book, just follow Mia and just go with it. Don’t think too much about it.

The premise and storyline was really fun. Using social media to discover who she is so current and such a millennial thing to do. I loved following her on her quest to find out who the heck she is.

The book had footnotes throughout and I found them to be a really cute touch. They added a lot of humor to the story.

There’s a brief mention of Keanu Reeves on page 55 that I loved. Keanu Reeves is my favorite so any mention of him is a plus in my book.

I was a little underwhelmed at the end. Once I found out what happened to Mia and who she was, I didn’t have any sort of reaction to it. I felt a little let down. There was a lot of build up, but ultimately it wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be.

Overall, if you are looking for something quick and light (and kind of ridiculous) to read, this book may be for you. ( )

While silly, I read it in one sitting - I couldn't put it down! Very cute, captivating premise (akin to a guilty pleasure TV series), and satisfying ending. Full of twists and turns! ( )
