I was fascinated by this story about a girl found in New York with near total amnesia . “[S]he is said to have recalled certain words, which turned out to be an excerpt from the fantasy novel "Fool's Fate" by Robin Hobb. ... The girl has a 2- to 4-inch scar on her lower left back and had a black, handwritten birthday message on her arm, addressed to a name of Japanese origin, when she was found, police said.”
It turned out she was 18, not 14-17 as authorities thought, from Washington State, and had had some previous issues with memory loss. Here’s an update on the story.
I’ve been pretty seriously playing around with a story idea about a girl who regains consciousness to realize she doesn’t know who she is or anything about herself except that bad people think she knows something and are determined to find out what it is and then kill her.
