Sia - debut novel

Summary from Goodreads:
When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one. Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle.

Review by Elyah
Josh Grayson has managed to put together a breathtaking story that I myself have never heard of anything similar. Never has a story that is only one hundred and thirty-three pages moved me so much. I can tell by reading that Grayson put a good amount of time and effort into making Sia, and I wish I was the first to say how much it paid off.

This novel has too many great parts to put down so here is the best: “True friendship is when two friends can walk in opposite directions, yet remain side by side.”
I am looking forward to reading more of his books, and sharing them with friends and family.

Meet the Author
Josh Grayson was born in Mexico, raised in Massachusetts, and now lives in Martinsville, Virginia. It was his move to the South that stirred his imagination and gave him the courage to start writing. During his free time, Josh enjoys reading, jogging, swimming, and watching YouTube videos.

Josh currently works as a medical driver, shuttling people all over Virginia and North Carolina. He has also worked as a machinist, film sales rep, administrative assistant, and telemarketer (he apologizes if he called you).

Sia is his debut YA novel.
