Escape from Memory
Margaret Peterson Haddix
Simon & Schuster / 2005
When Kira lets her friends hypnotize her at a slumber party, she unearths a memory that just doesn’t make sense: She recalls that she and her mother fled to their small town from a country that doesn’t exist, speaking a language she can’t identify. But after she and her mother are kidnapped by the mysterious Aunt Memory and brought back to Crythe, Kira discovers her recollection was real. Dangerous secrets are locked in her mind—and her memories are the only thing that might save her family.
