The Bourne Identity meets Divergent in this heart-pounding debut.
Sixteen-year-old Sarah has a rare chance at a new life. Or so the doctors tell her. She’s been undergoing a cutting-edge procedure that will render her a tabula rasa—a blank slate. Memory by memory her troubled past is being taken away.

But when her final surgery is interrupted and a team of elite soldiers invades the isolated hospital under cover of a massive blizzard, her fresh start could be her end.

Navigating familiar halls that have become a dangerous maze with the help of a teen computer hacker who's trying to bring the hospital down for his own reasons, Sarah starts to piece together who she is and why someone would want her erased. And she won’t be silenced again.

A high-stakes thriller featuring a non-stop race for survival and a smart heroine who will risk everything, Tabula Rasa is, in short, unforgettable

Eh. At first the whole idea of Tabula Rasa reminded me of the Slated series by Teri Terry, criminals or dangerous people- who are either a danger to others or themselves get a second chance by having their memories wiped for a fresh start, but with Tabula Rasa, you quickly realise that that's not the case. The idea of it is- the criminal's getting their memories wiped is- but the execution is not.
