SANTA ROSA --
Meet and Greet with Jennifer Liss, author of the YA novel Wild Like Us.
Drop by our Montgomery Village store and say hello!
On the edge of a collapsing society, families are left struggling to care for their children. The government offers a solution - send their children to special camps. They will be cared for, with only one stipulation - their memories will be erased in order to protect them from the pain of their pasts. Things are not always as they appear.
Eleven-year-old Naomi lives in the Canyon Region facility. One afternoon, the camp director makes the children an offer to restore their memories. They have only one night to make the choice between learning the truth of who they are and of the outside world, or to remain in the camp.
Will Naomi choose her memories? If she does, will she survive the journey home on her own?
