The One Memory of Flora Banks is a very good book. It is about a girl named Flora who has severe short-term memory loss. In the story, Flora goes on a wonderful journey to Svalbard looking for her true love. On the journey, Flora finds herself and learns about the secrets and lies that made up her sheltered world. I fell in love with Flora and her intelligence and energetic personality. The book was well written and I loved the plot twists. The One Memory of Flora Banks had characters that feel real and relatable. Throughout the book, the dialogue and Flora's thoughts felt natural. I found the book a little slow paced at first, but I understand that that information is needed to make the end of the story as captivating as it is. I would recommend this book to people who like going on adventures with the character. My favorite quote from the book is, "Live in the moment whenever you can. You don't need a memory for that." This quote really captures the spirit of Flora and message of the book.
