Description
"The Bourne Identity" meets "Divergent" in this action-packed debut thriller with a Katniss-esque heroine fighting to regain her memories and stay alive, set against a dystopian hospital background.
Sarah starts a crazy battle for her life within the walls of her hospital-turned-prison when a procedure to eliminate her memory goes awry and she starts to remember snatches of her past. Was she an urban terrorist or vigilante? Has the procedure been her salvation or her destruction?
The answers lie trapped within her mind. To access them, she'll need the help of the teen computer hacker who's trying to bring the hospital down for his own reasons, and a pill that's blocked by an army of mercenary soldiers poised to eliminate her for good. If only she knew why . . .
"This is a snap-the-whip story, dark and fast. The sparks of humor in the voice won me over. Bottom line: I think the cocktail of suspense and believable smart-assery adds up to an addictive dose of reader appeal." --Blythe Woolston, author of the William C. Morris Award winner "The Freak Observer"

About the Author
As a kid, Kristen Lippert-Martin would (mentally) rewrite the endings to TV shows and books when she didn t like how they came out. In time, writing went from being a way to daydream to being a secret passion. It wasn t until she became an adult that it transformed into a necessity. She likes to write stories about people who are secretly awesome and just need to find the right circumstances often difficult to discover themselves. She lives in Arlington, Virginia, with her obviously awesome family. Tabula Rasa is her first novel. Visit her at www.kristenlippertmartin.com or on Twitter @KLipMart.
