The Last Thing I Remember, by Andrew Klavan
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Author Andrew Klavan has been hailed by authors such as Stephen King and is the recipient of two Edgar Awards. Other titles include: True Crime, Don’t Say A Word, and Empire of Lies.
Charlie West just woke up in someone else’s nightmare. Covered in blood and bruises while strapped to a chair, Charlie tries to think of the last thing he can remember. He was a high school teenager practicing karate, doing homework, and dreaming of being an air force pilot. Where is he now? Who is he really? Most importantly, how was he going to get out of this room alive, because the stranger’s voice outside the door just ordered his death!
Listed as Book One in The Highlander Series, this YA novel is told in first-person point-of-view. There were a lot of things in this book worth mentioning. I loved that Charlie kept a Churchill quote in his pocket. This book addresses the poor choices teenagers can make and the drastic outcome, as well as the pivotal shining moments that one remembers all their life. This is a fast-paced book to keep you glued and very well-written. The ending may disappoint and leave you hanging, but the next book, The Long Way Home, is coming soon.
