Mini Review: Glimmer by Phoebe Kitandis

Glimmer by Phoebe Kitandis

Publisher: Balzer + Bray (April 17, 2012)
Length: 352 pages
Format: Hardcover

Summary from Amazon:
When Marshall King and Elyse Alton suddenly wake up tangled in each other's arms with zero memory of how they got there or even who they are, it's the start of a long journey through their separate pasts and shared future.
Terrified by their amnesia, Marshall and Elyse make a pact to work together to find the answers that could restore their missing memories. As they piece together clues about their lives, they discover that they're in the idyllic mountain resort town of Summer Falls. Everyone seems happy there, but as Marshall and Elyse quickly learn, darkness lurks beneath the town's perfect facade. Not only is the town haunted by sinister ghosts, but none of its living inhabitants retain bad memories of anything—not the death of Marshall's mom, not the hidden violence in Elyse's family, not even the day-to-day anguish of being a high schooler.
Lonely in this world of happy zombies, Marshall and Elyse fall into an intense relationship founded on their mutual quest for truth. But the secrets they're trying to uncover could be the death of this budding love affair—and of everyone, and everything, they love in Summer Falls.

I found this book really interesting. Sometimes I was a bit confused about what was going on but the characters were just as confused. I loved that we got to see it from both people's point of view, especially the last part of the book. It made it so interesting because you knew what was going on while one of the characters didn't. 
I think I would rather remember the bad stuff because it makes you appreciate the good stuff more.  
3.5/5 stars.
