It all started with an innocent family trip to Yellowstone. Reagan's younger brother, Sam, was taken and declared dead during an attack in the middle of the night, and Reagan herself was hurt. Life afterward was difficult and strange things started to happen. Her memory of that faithful night was a blur, but Reagan knew it would provide the answers she seeks. But was she really prepared to face the truth?

The pace of the story was faultless; author Tia Silverthorne Back wrote "Chasing Memories" with all the right tempo in place. Story line was delivered with enough details and wasn't rushed. There were no plot holes and characters were introduced properly with each and having their own significant role to complete the story. Reagan, her parents, Nana, Rafe and all the others; they were believable characters with realistic dialogues, perfectly developed so that I knew precisely who they were and what they would feel and think. On the other hand, as much as I loved the plot and the theme, this is also a young adult story and there were some YA elements that I, as an adult, couldn't care much about. Nevertheless, these are not flaws from the author but merely parts of the story that I couldn't connect with. That being said, this book will definitely attract a significant number of loyal fans and I look forward to find out Reagan's fate in her new life.
