Series: Teen Titan
When a tragic accident takes the life of 17-year-old Raven Roth’s foster mom–and Raven’s memory–she moves to New Orleans to recover and finish her senior year of high school.
Starting over isn’t easy. Raven remembers everyday stuff like how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can’t remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident. And when impossible things start happening, Raven begins to think it might even be better not to know who she was before.
But as she grows closer to her new friends, her foster sister, Max, and Tommy Torres, a guy who accepts her for who she is now, Raven has to decide if she’s ready to face what’s buried in the past…and the darkness building inside her.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia and first-time graphic novel artist Gabriel Picolo comes this riveting tale of finding the strength to face who you are and learning to trust others–and yourself.

Thank you to Penguin Random House for sending me a copy of this book to review!
I’d been eyeing this one up for a couple of weeks and when I got an email asking about it I couldn’t not jump at the chance to review it! I loved Kami Garcia’s Beautiful Creatures series, I’ve yet to read any of her other books and I’ve adored Gabriel Piccolo’s art for ages now, I’ve followed him on instagram for a few years now, his art is just absolutely amazing!
Raven gets into an accident where she ends up with amnesia, she knows everyday things on how to do things but she remembers nothing about herself or her life before the accident. Whilst she’s trying to find who she was she realizes she has these supernatural powers and feels like she’s going mad not understanding what’s going on.
I found this to be really gripping, the artwork is absolutely beautiful and you take the time to pause and actually appreciate it. I really enjoyed the story overall and I’m looking forwards to the next novel that comes out next year of Beast Boy! I will admit that I’ve never read anything about Teen Titan’s before but I love DC so I’d definitely be interested in reading more from these characters, I do highly recommend this graphic novel!
