My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares

Title: My Name Is Memory

Author: Ann Brashares

Publisher: Penguin Group

Date Published: June 7, 2011

Pages: 362 (paperback)

Genre: YA fiction

Age Range: 14+


Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remem bers it all. For all the times that he and Sophia have been connected throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart.

But just when Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally awakens to the secret of their shared past, the mysterious force that has always separated them reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.


The characters are amazing, sweet, and tragic. The writing is fantastic, though it it's not the speedy type of writing, it is one that is easy to understand, but written in a way that the author makes sure you read the words carefully and take it all in. The storyline is unique and interesting, keeping you on the edge of your seat, waiting to see what happens between the two main characters (Lucy and Daniel) and all their other past selves.

Though this isn't just a romance, it's a race to get to Lucy between Daniel and Daniel's brother--who is looking for revenge for falling in love with his wife in a past life. You'll get sucked in till the very last page.

Some mild sexual content. Some marital abuse.
