Summary from Goodreads:

In this claustrophobic science fiction thriller, a woman begins to doubt her own sanity and reality itself when she undergoes a dangerous experiment.

The Ganymede compound is a fresh start. At least that's what Senna tells herself when she arrives to take part in a cutting-edge scientific treatment, where participants have traumatic memories erased.

And Senna has reasons for wanting to escape her past.

But almost as soon as the treatment begins, Senna finds more than just her traumatic memories disappearing. She hardly recognizes her new life or herself. Even though the symptoms for the process might justify the cure, Senna knows that something isn't right. As her symptoms worsen, Senna will need to band together with the other participants to unravel the mystery of her present, and save her future.

Imagine if you could have that one memory that pains you the most removed? Would you do it?

Senna was the lone survivor of a tragedy, everyone she knew, dead. The memories haunt her, but when the promise of these memories being removed for good crosses her path, she can't say no. But is it too good to be true?

Janky things start happening, and of course as the reader we can see bits and pieces, almost more than the character can, but the author has a wonderful way of holding back just enough information to keep you guessing and making you want more. Senna's intuition kicks in pretty early on, but as more and more of her memories are erased, things become harder to clarify. 

The ending lays all of the questions asked in the story out until everything makes sense. A wonderful wrap up to a mind trip of a book. I really enjoyed reading Senna's story.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
