Escape from Memory by Margaret Peterson Haddix

While playing around with hypnotism at a party, Kira remembers fleeing a war-torn country with her mother, speaking a language she can't identify. A few days later her mother disappears, and a woman who calls herself Kira's aunt Memory takes Kira to Crythe, a country that doesn't officially exist, in order to rescue her -- or so she says. Kira soon learns that Aunt Memory is not what she seems, and that she and her mother are both in terrible danger. There are memories locked in her mnd that could get them killed -- but those memories are the only thing that might save them.

WONDERFUL! Margaret Haddix is an AMAZING AUTHOR! Definitly one of my favorites! She never disappoints... well, Turnabout was confusing, but this was GREAT! I love the Missing Series, and The Princess books (Just Ella, The Palace of Mirrors) were pretty good also! Double Identity is my favorite by her, and this is a close second!

Escape from Memory is an interesting, suspenseful book. Kira has the strange memory and tries to find out more about it when her mother suddenly goes missing and a strange woman that claims to be her Aunt from the far away land Cryth. The woman says they must go to cryth to find the mom. That's when Kira finds her best friend in her suit case, finds out that the woman claiming to be her aunt is evil, and isn't her aunt, and Kira gets locked in a basement with her mom. From their on she has to struggle to get back to her hometown safely with her mom and best friend. Though the plot had many twists and turns that could keep you flipping pages there were also some boring spots. Plus, sometimes it went a little too far with plot changes. This book might be better for someone who really enjoys sci-fi, but, for others, it would probably not be as great.

I first found this book four years ago in 6th grade, and I loved it. I can honestly say that this book is the reason why I'm so into reading now. I remember being so engulfed into the story, that I would not put it down! I have never forgotten this book and I'd seriously reccomend to any adult, unless you're looking for a more challenging read (I mean, I read it when I was eleven and understood it perfectly). This book was definitely entertaining.

Kira Landon came home from her friend, Lynn¿s, house and discovered a memory from her past by being hypnotized. Soon after, Kira finds clues about her past such as keys, notes, and the computer. Then a woman appeared at her door step right after she discovered the note her mother had left to tell her to go to Lynn¿s house. The woman took Kira to Crythe, the land of her past. The woman told Kira she was her ¿Aunt Memory¿ and told Kira of her past and had her about her past and had Kira tell a speech which Kira didn¿t do because she didn¿t truly believe it. She was brought to a dungeon where her told the truth about Crythe, and how she was Kira¿s real ¿Aunt Memory¿. Soon after, the woman found Lynn and brought her to the dungeon too. Then Kira suddenly remembered the keys in her pocket and tricked Rona, the woman, into bringing Lynn and her to the safe deposit box in the town where they lived. On the way back to their hometown, Lynn hypnotizes Kira and then Kira remembers her past. Once they got there rona wawsan¿t allowed to see the items in the box so Kira wrote in Russian to trick Rona into thinking it is her father¿s handwriting. In the end will Rona kill Kira and Lynn? Will Rona kill Kira¿s mother? I liked the part when she actually remembered her past and her real parents because then she knew who her mother and father were. I also liked the part where Kira thinks of the idea about the safe Deposit Box and tricked Rona. I pretty much liked everything about this book and I have know complaints. This book is not part of a series but there are many other great books by Margret Peterson Haddix. I would probably recommend this to people who enjoy a slight mystery. Enjoy reading this book as much as I did.

This story begins in a inland state in the U.S.. A girl called Kira lives with her mother in a small town. soon she goes to a sleepover and her freinds make her remember her past through hypnosis. But her past is not normal, and she is soon carted away to the town of cryan, where everyone remembers everything. her past is revealed to her, and she learns about her parents, her REAL parents. Evenually, she leaves cryan and goes home, An okay ending, but not great. lots of exitement and mystery. I give this a 6 out of ten.

This book is about Kira, a teenaged girl, who has to save her mom from Aunt Memory who is not who she really says. Kira travels back to where she use to live and has to save herself and her mom. The only thing she has to help her and her mom is her memories. I liked this book because it was like an adventure and a mystery in one book.

I just couldn't put the book down.Like I said it was 'Amazingly Addicting!'. I think the title fits the story,but it's not as obvious that she (Kira) is really trying to escape from memory as I believe it should be. You just really have to study and read it closly to find out what is going on. I've read it once and now I'm reading it a second time! I was not dissapointed!
