Synopsis:Georgie’s new heart saved her life…but now she’s losing her mind. “An eerie mystery wrapped in a heart-wrenching romance—will leave you breathless!” — Gretchen McNeil, author of TEN and the Don’t Get Mad series
When Georgie Kendrick wakes up after a heart transplant she feels…different. The organ beating in her chest isn’t in tune with the rest of her body. Like it still belongs to someone else. Someone with terrible memories…memories that are slowly replacing her own. A dark room, a man in the shadows, the sharp taste of adrenaline – these are her donor’s final memories. Pieces of a deadly puzzle. And if Georgie doesn’t want them to be the last thing she remembers, she has to find out the truth behind her donor’s death…before she loses herself completely.
Fans of Lisa McMann and April Henry will devour this edgy, gripping thriller with a twist readers won’t see coming!

Praise for The Forgetting:
“[T]his story is a powerful call to action. Yet even with its obvious motivation, it is never preachy. Strong characters, a well-developed mystery and a budding romance all come together to make this a story worth reading. Admirably and appropriately, Maggi refuses to shy away from what Georgie uncovers, including drug use and graphic scenes of sexual violence against children. Dark reality for sturdy readers.” – Kirkus Reviews
“As long as teens buy into the book’s premise, they will be drawn into its suspenseful, exciting story that sheds light on an important social justice issue not often addressed in YA fiction. This book is a solid purchase for its innovative subject matter.” – School Library Journal
About the Author:
Nicole was born in the suburbs of upstate New York, and began writing poems about unicorns and rainbows at a very early age. She detoured into acting, earned a BFA from Emerson College, and moved to NYC where she performed in lots of off-off-off-Broadway Shakespeare. After a decade of schlepping groceries on the subway, she and her husband hightailed it to sunny Los Angeles, where they now reside, surrounded by fruit trees, with their young daughter and two oddball cats. She is also the author of THE TWIN WILLOWS TRILOGY, published by Medallion Press. The first book, WINTER FALLS, is available now.
