"Forget About It" by Caprice Crane:
Jordan Landau is having a bad life. At twenty-five, she is attractive, smart, funny and talented. But all that doesn’t keep her mother from calling her fat, her boss from stealing her ideas, and her boyfriend from cheating on her. Day in and day out, she sits back and watches as everyone walks all over her. Then one day while riding her bike home from a particularly awful day, Jordan collides with a car door and is knocked clear off her bicycle. Coming to in the hospital, Jordan realizes she has a perfect excuse for a “do-over”; she vows to fake amnesia and reinvent herself. And it works. Finally, Jordan is able to get the credit she deserves at work, and she stands up to her family and her jerk boyfriend. She’s living the life she always dreamed of–until the unthinkable happens. Suddenly Jordan must start over for real, and figure out what really makes her happy–and how to live a truly memorable life. (Summary courtesy of Caprice Crane's website.)

Melissa A:
I had seen this book in the store and thought it looked interesting. Then I obtained a copy of it a few weeks later and was hooked from the first page. It was a clever story, funny, full of pop culture references and had a character with whom I was able to relate in some way or another. It got me interested in Caprice Crane and I enjoyed her other books, as well. She has a unique style to her storytelling and I highly recommend checking out all of her books!

This sounds really witty. Those re-invent yourself stories get me everytime.

It also reminds me of 'Remember Me' by Sophie Kinsella - but I am a sucker for female leads that come into their own .........

I love this book! The funny thing is the only reason why I picked it up in the bookstore is because of its cover. I did not really think it would be good but it was.

I hadn't heard of Caprice before so I may well have a closer look at her books now. Remember Me is a great read so I'd happily read something along similar lines.

A dear friend sent me this book because she thought I'd like it. I can't say that I fully supported the main character's actions but it was thought provoking. What would you do differently if you had the opportunity?

This sounds like a fun read. Who doesn't wish they could reinvent themselves sometimes? Interested to read how that turns out for Jordan.
