Read The Hidden Memory of Objects Online Free - If I Stay meets House of Cards in this equal parts emotional and thrilling contemporary debut with a speculative twist.
Megan Brown’s brother, Tyler, is dead, but the cops are killing him all over again. They say he died of a drug overdose, potentially suicide—something Megan cannot accept. Determined to figure out what happened in the months before Tyler’s death, Megan turns to the things he left behind. After all, she understands the stories objects can tell—at fifteen, she is a gifted collage artist with a flair for creating found-object pieces. However, she now realizes that her artistic talent has developed into something more: she can see memories attached to some of Tyler’s belongings—and those memories reveal a brother she never knew.
Soon Megan finds herself drawn into a world of violent crime artifacts and painful national memories. Along with a trusted classmate and her brother's alluring friend, she chases down the troubling truth about Tyler across Washington, DC, while reclaiming her own stifled identity with a vengeance.
Danielle Mages Amato’s extraordinary debut is a story of how the things we leave behind continue to shape our memories and identities long after we are gone.
