Hi everyone! Today I'm super excited to share with you the official book trailer of The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr from Film 14! This book is a YA Contemporary standalone novel that released last month from Penguin Teen and it's about a girl who has no short-term memory after a tumor was removed from her brain when she was a kid. It honestly sounds like a great read & after seeing its official book trailer, I feel the need to read it ASAP. It's SO COOL and I heard it was filmed in Iceland!

The One Memory of Flora Banks
by Emily Barr
YA Contemporary
May 2nd 2017 from Penguin Teen
Seventeen-year-old Flora Banks has no short-term memory. Her mind resets itself several times a day, and has since the age of ten, when the tumor that was removed from Flora's brain took with it her ability to make new memories. That is, until she kisses Drake, her best friend's boyfriend, the night before he leaves town. Miraculously, this one memory breaks through Flora's fractured mind, and sticks. Flora is convinced that Drake is responsible for restoring her memory and making her whole again. So when an encouraging email from Drake suggests she meet him on the other side of the world, Flora knows with certainty that this is the first step toward reclaiming her life. 

With little more than the words "be brave" inked into her skin, and written reminders of who she is and why her memory is so limited, Flora sets off on an impossible journey to Svalbard, Norway, the land of the midnight sun, determined to find Drake. But from the moment she arrives in the arctic, nothing is quite as it seems, and Flora must "be brave" if she is ever to learn the truth about herself, and to make it safely home. 

Doesn't it look amazing?!?! I love how it looks just like a movie trailer ( & would definitely go watch it in theaters). Such a great job, Film 14!
