With the same wicked humor and delicious charm that have won her millions of devoted fans, Sophie Kinsella, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Shopaholic & Baby, returns with an irresistible new novel and a fresh new heroine who finds herself in a life-changing and utterly hilarious predicament….

When twenty-eight-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she's in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident-in a Mercedes no less-Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she's about to find out just how much things have changed.

Somehow Lexi went from a twenty-five-year-old working girl to a corporate big shot with a sleek new loft, a personal assistant, a carb-free diet, and a set of glamorous new friends. And who is this gorgeous husband-who also happens to be a multimillionaire? With her mind still stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she…well, seems to be. That is, until an adorably disheveled architect drops the biggest bombshell of all.

Suddenly Lexi is scrambling to catch her balance. Her new life, it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?

Read from the Book

Chapter One How long have I been awake? Is it morning yet? I feel so rough. What happened last night? God, my head hurts. Okay, I''m never drinking again, ever. I feel so woozy I can''t even think, let alone . . . *** Oww. How long have I been awake? My head is splitting and kind of foggy. And my mouth is parched. This is the most monster hangover I''ve ever had. I''m never drinking again, ever. Is that a voice? No, I have to sleep . . . *** How long have I been awake? Five minutes? Half an hour, maybe? It''s kind of hard to tell. What day is it, anyway? For a moment I just lie still. My head is pounding with a rhythmic pain, like some sort of massive concrete-breaker. I''m dry-throated and aching all over. My skin feels like sandpaper. Where was I last night? What''s wrong with my brain? It''s like a fog has descended over everything. I''m never drinking again. I must have alcohol poisoning or something. I''m trying to remember last night as hard as I can-but all that''s coming into my head is stupid stuff. Old memories and images from the past, flashing by in random order, like some kind of iPod shuffle in my brain. Sunflowers waving against a blue sky . . . Amy as a newborn baby, looking like a little pink sausage in a blanket . . . A plate of salty french fries on a wooden pub table; hot sunshine on my neck; my dad sitting opposite in a Panama hat, blowing out cigar smoke and telling me, "Eat up, sweetheart" . . . The sack race at school. Oh God, not this memory

Bookclub Guide

Imagine waking up in a hospital room, unable to remember how you got there-or to recognize your drop-dead-gorgeous husband. Once you're home, you find that your closet is packed with fabulous designer clothes, in a size that only models can squeeze into. Your body is flawless, and your Louis Vuitton handbag contains enough cash and credit to buy even more accessories for your posh life. Your husband is a multimillionaire. How will you ever sort out the truth about who you really are? This is the quandary faced by Lexi Smart in the latest romp from #1 bestselling novelist Sophie Kinsella. Brimming with the wit, charm and optimism that have made her previous books wildly popular around the globe, Remember Me? will have your reading group cheering for Lexi at every glamorous turn.

The questions and discussion topics that follow are intended to enhance your reading of Sophie Kinsella's Remember Me? We hope they will enrich your experience of this irresistible novel.

1. What were your theories about what had happened to Lexi? How did your first guesses change when you learned more about the aftermath of her father's funeral?

2. What were the best and worst parts of Lexi's life before she broke up with Loser Dave?

3. If you were to go through an experience like Lexi's, waking up in the midst of your own life but not recalling anything about it, what quirks or secrets might you encounter? What would an Eric-style manual to your life look like?

4. Would you have been willing to stay with Eric in order to live in such a state-of-the art residence, with high-end clothing, sporty cars, and other status symbols? Would you have resorted to Lexi's turnaround in order to save your mother from financial ruin?

5. What are the plusses and minuses of having a fabulous body like Lexi's? Were her carb-free ways worth it?

6. What does Remember Me? say about healthy versus destructive ambition? What separates those who would use the entertainment system's disco feature every night and those who (like Eric) would see it as an absurd waste of time?

7. What accounts for the insensitive behavior of Lexi's mother? Is her personality the result or the cause of Lexi's father's wild side? If you had been Lexi's mother, would you have withheld the truth from your daughter?

8. How does Lexi interact with her feisty younger sister, Amy?

9. Give Lexi a pop-science medical diagnosis. Why was she unable to recall anything that happened between the night she fell while hailing a taxi and the day she woke up? What was significant about the novel's opening scene? Why might her mind have rejected all events that occurred afterward?

10. Discuss the comments made by Lexi's friends after she tried to make amends, when they admitted that they respected her even though she was a tough boss. Who are the best bosses? What is the ideal way to motivate co-workers? Could you stand it if your best friend became your boss?

11. Would you have trusted Jon? Did he handle the situation well, or did he badger Lexi to the point of seeming dodgy?

12. How did your opinion of Lexi's father shift as you read to the end? Did he have any heroic traits? Was his materialism worse than Eric's?

13. What does Lexi's plan for the carpeting coup prove about getting ahead in business? Which traits will get you better returns: creativity or financial sense? Ingenuity or ruthlessness?

14. Discuss the closing scene on the terrace. What is your best memory or fantasy of a secret code that would unite you and a lover? What do you predict for Jon and Lexi's future? What will become of Eric?

15. What would the characters in Sophie Kinsella's other novels think of Lexi Smart and her predicament? What refreshing outlook on life do all of Kinsella's heroines share?
