Kat is hit by a car. All she remembers is a bang and a circle of staring faces. An ambulance takes her to the hospital where they determine she has amnesia.

After a few days of observation in the hospital, Kat returns home. It may be home, but she doesn't recognize a thing. Not her mother, her mother's boyfriend, her house, her room - nothing. Everyone tries to be understanding, but it is not easy for anyone.

Dr. Perrin, a psychologist, tries to get to the bottom of the problem and suggests it might be related to something with no connection to the accident. That doesn't really help Kat. All she knows is that her closet is full of clothes she never remembers wearing, everyone calls her Kathy and that doesn't seem right, and her mother seems desperate for her to remember something, anything.

When it is no longer reasonable to stay at home, Kat returns to school. Instead of finding familiar faces or help in recalling her past, she is met by strange looks and rude behavior. Jade and Poppy, who were supposedly her best friends before the accident, are suddenly teasing and taunting her. They seem to know about some terrible thing Kat did before the accident, and they are making her life miserable.

Author Lee Weatherly tells Kat's story from two perspectives. Chapters alternate between Kat's description of her current situation and journal entries from before the accident when Kat was known as Kathy by her friends and family. Readers will keep turning pages as their curiosity grows. What terrible thing did Kat do and will she ever regain her past?
