Reviewed by Carrie Spellman for

All she knows is that she's in a hospital. She doesn't know how she got there, what happened, why it happened, or even her name. She is on every form of news available but no one seems to know who she is or where she came from.

Eventually the physical injuries heal, but no one is any closer to solving the original questions. The hospital has no choice but to release J.D., short for Jane Doe, to a juvenile home. And the other kids aren't thrilled to have a celebrity in their midst.

Between the music in her head and the dangerous abilities she's exhibiting, J.D. isn't even sure she can trust herself, much less the woman who claims to be her mother. Dropped into a life she doesn't recognize, her only stabilizing influence is Daniel, the one friend she made at the home.

Unless he, or their friendship, was just a delusion, too.

A story line that I really like, but it's a bit slow to get started. Once it starts to pick up, though, it really sucks you in. Just when you feel like you, and J.D., are about to get some answers, the book ends! Thankfully, all three books of the trilogy are being released in rather quick succession!
