Mandy's Review: Sia by Josh Grayson

About the book:  When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one. Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle.

WOW!   I read a lot of books, and I mean a lot of books and this book by Josh Grayson is magnificent.  Sia is a senior in high school who wakes up on a bench in the park and can't remember anything. The tale that follows is intriguing and inspiring.  Sia finally makes it home and discovers things about her past that she is not very happy with.  Grayson does a great job of making Sia take a look at herself, to really decided on the person she wants to be.  She inspires herself to be a better person, even if it is the hardest thing to do.  Sometimes in life the right thing to do is the hardest and the decision within the story is brilliant.  The words weaved are believable, address real life issues and make you want to be a better person.  Josh Grayson - Rock On my Man !  I give this book 5 stars.
