The Bourne Identity meets Divergent in this action-packed debut thriller with a Katniss-esque heroine fighting to regain her memories and stay alive, set against a dystopian hospital background.

Sarah starts a crazy battle for her life within the walls of her hospital-turned-prison when a procedure to eliminate her memory goes awry and she starts to remember snatches of her past. Was she an urban terrorist or vigilante? Has the procedure been her salvation or her destruction?

The answers lie trapped within her mind. To access them, she'll need the help of the teen computer hacker who's trying to bring the hospital down for his own reasons, and a pill that's blocked by an army of mercenary soldiers poised to eliminate her for good. If only she knew why . . .

"This is a snap-the-whip story, dark and fast. The sparks of humor in the voice won me over. Bottom line: I think the cocktail of suspense and believable smart-assery adds up to an addictive dose of reader appeal." --Blythe Woolston, author of the William C. Morris Award winner The Freak Observer

    I loved this book! I think author Kristen Lippert-Martin is extremely talented for incorporating so many great twists in "Tabula Rasa" and for writing with the amount of detail she did. This dystopian novel somehow ranged from thrilling to romantic to comedic which made for an amazing read! The storyline was amazing, thought-provoking, and kept me wandering about what I would do if given the choices offered to the characters Lippert-Martin describes. Would you sacrifice the memories that make you who you are for the chance at a clean slate?

      this book is really good it is about this girl she was in this hospital and they were doing something with her head like they were trying to do something with her memory. Then some people came and tried to kill her but she escaped and then she meet this guy named Thomas and they go on a a little vacation. And i am not sure if this is going to spoiler it but they fall in love but don't get married
