interrupted. Can the relationship survive when the memories
Marissa Rogers never wanted to be an
alpha; beta suited her just fine. Taking charge without
taking credit had always paid off: vaulting her to senior

of being best friends with gorgeous, charismatic, absolutely
alpha Julia Ferrar.

She survives with minor obvious injuries, but brain damage
steals her memory and alters her personality, possibly
forever. Suddenly, Marissa is thrown into the role of alpha
friend. As Julia struggles to regain her memory- dredging up
issues Marissa would rather forget, including the fact that
Julia asked her to abandon the love of her life ten years
ago- Marissa's own equilibrium is shaken.

Re: The Art Of Forgetting
This is a very thought-provoking interview. Yes, I think friendship can survive
many ups and downs, however, it takes work on the part of both friends. I
feel that friendships fail when only one person does most of the "friending."
That sort of relationship is a type of crutch that is destined to crumble.
