Eric wakes up in the hospital with no memory of how he got there or who he is or who that strange woman is who is crying. He doesn’t even remember who his mother is. Total amnesia. He doesn’t remember that there was another boy, Sean, in his car who died of gunshot wound before the crash. That is the mystery, who killed Sean and why and what was he doing with Eric?As memories start to return he finds that he doesn’t like the person who he was: a gay bashing bully. He wonders why he was like that.
One weak theme in the novel that never went anywhere was when Eric came out of his coma he had some psychic abilities. He could see the future in dreams and he could read people’s minds when their hands touched. The novel would have been better without this especially since it wasn’t explained but just left dangling.
A most interesting point of view.
