I would give this book 4 for a review.
A teen programmer at a school for geniuses must join forces with a boy she can’t remember to stop a hacker from deleting their memories in Shana Silver’s action-packed YA debut, Mind Games.
Arden sells memories. Whether it’s becoming homecoming queen or studying for that all important test, Arden can hack into a classmate’s memories and upload the experience for you just as if you’d lived it yourself. Business is great, right up until the day Arden whites out, losing fifteen minutes of her life and all her memories of the boy across the school yard. The boy her friends assure her she’s had a crush on for years.
Arden realizes that her own memories have been hacked, but they haven’t just been stolen and shared… they’ve been removed. And she’s not the only one: her mysterious crush, Sebastian, has lost ALL of his memories. But how can they find someone who has the power to make them forget everything they’ve learned?
I really loved how this was science fiction inspired thriller. I grew to love the main character throughout the novel. I really did like the world building and the the start of this read was super strong. I loved how memory was a major element in this story. I really did enjoy the romance and thought this book was such a solid stand alone. I thought the ending was a tad rushed at points but I would def. read more by this author in the future.
