    “Halfway through The Memory Book my breath caught in my chest and eyes began to water. Lara’s writing carried me straight into the heartache of memory loss. But even in the midst of that sadness, this story shows you how amazing it is to have the support of loved ones. Heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once!” – Natalie Sousa, Art Director

    The Memory Book is my favorite YA book I’ve read all summer.” — Allison H., Rights Director

    “It’s been such a joy working on this book, even when editing through tears. Equal parts heartbreaking and inspiring, Lara Avery’s The Memory Book is an emotional journey readers won’t soon forget.” – Leslie Shumate, Assistant Editor, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

    The Memory Book is heartbreaking and heart-lifting at the same time. Sammie’s poise, sense of humor, and strength on her poignant journey is captivating and inspirational.” — Jody R., copyeditor

    “As one of the editors on this amazing book, I read and re-read The Memory Book countless times as I worked with the Lara on revisions. Sometimes when you re-read a book, the emotional impact isn’t as strong since you already know what you’re in for. But with The Memory Book, time after time, I felt tears flowing down my face as I re-discovered the joys and sorrows of smart, funny, courageous Sammie. This book will tear you apart but leave you smiling through your tears. A do-not-miss!” – Annie Stone, Editor, Alloy Entertainment

    The Memory Book is such a unique read! It’s really about everything—romance, family, friendship, ambition and independence . . . and what it would be like if you’d start to lose some of that control in your life. I laughed and I cried (so hard I had to wipe away the tears to finish the last pages)—I loved it. Sammie is smart, strong, independent, quirky, and so likeable—you’re sucked in right away by her voice and you’ll cheer for her from the start. I definitely identified with Sammie’s Type-A, go-get-’em personality, which made seeing the effects of her illness all the more heartbreaking and seeing her resiliency and determination in the face of it all the more inspiring.” — Jackie H., proofreader
