"Jack tilts my face until I meet his eyes again, "Ella," he says, his voice dark and grave. "I realize that you don't remember me. But if you did, you'd know that I would never become the kind of person you seem to think I already am. But I will not let myself be turned into.... whatever those things are. If I have to kill, I'll kill -- I'll do what it takes to protect myself, and humanity. But to resort to violence, you can rest assured I will not just explode half the city and kill innocent people. If I'm going to kill someone, then I'm going to look that person in the eye when I do it, and they are going to know why I am doing it."
"The future world is at peace.
Ella Shepherd has dedicated her life to using her unique gift--the ability to enter people's dreams and memories using technology developed by her mother--to help others relive their happy memories.
But not all is at it seems.
Ella starts seeing impossible things--images of her dead father, warnings of who she cannot trust. Her government recruits her to spy on a rebel group, using her ability to experience--and influence--the memories of traitors. But the leader of the rebels claims they used to be in love--even though Ella's never met him before in her life. Which can only mean one thing...
Someone's altered her memory.
Ella's gift is enough to overthrow a corrupt government or crush a growing rebel group. She is the key to stopping a war she didn't even know was happening. But if someone else has been inside Ella's head, she cannot trust her own memories, thoughts, or feelings.
So who can she trust?"
