We love Emily Barr.
OK, we can’t just write that – but it’s very true.
Emily Barr is truly expanding the remit of what it means to be a YA author – after all, that’s why we selected her as one of our Electric Voices authors (for more information on what that means, click here).
Although the author of thirteen adult books, including ‘Backpack’ an adult thriller which won the WH Smith New Talent Award, ‘The One Memory of Flora Banks’ is her first YA novel – and it’s unlike anything we have read before (in a good way… a very very good way).
‘The One Memory of Flora Banks’ follows Flora, a teenage girl who lives with anterograde amnesia and has to re-remember her life several times each day. The book is set against the backdrop of an obsessive first love, with a setting that moves between Cornwall and the midnight sun of the Arctic summer.
