Book Trailer Thursday: THE ONE MEMORY OF FLORA BANKS

When the doctors removed a tumor from Flora Banks’ brain at the age of 10, she also lost her ability to form new memories. Now, at 17, one memory sticks out—kissing Drake.

The trailer for The One Memory of Flora Banks (Philomel) follows Flora as she traverses a tundra, determined to find Drake in Norway and discover why this moment is so important to her. As the music transitions from ambient to cinematic, Flora narrates ominously about her struggles. Through flashes of tattoos, maps, and notes, we—like Flora—piece together her yesterdays. In our starred Booklist review, Reinhardt Suarez praises Flora’s bravery and calls Barr’s novel itself, “A deftly, compassionately written mystery.”
