Our latest book trailer collaboration with Penguin Teen is The One Memory of Flora Banks, the story of a seventeen-year-old girl with no short term memory.

We filmed this new book trailer in warm and sunny Iceland in order to match the Arctic setting of the novel.

Advance praise for The One Memory of Flora Banks:

An EW Most Anticipated YA Novel of 2017

“[A] remarkable odyssey…an enthralling story…a deftly, compassionately written mystery.” —Booklist, starred review

”Barr’s tale mingles Oliver Sacks–like scientific curiosity with Arctic adventure and YA novel in a way that’s equally unsettling, winsome, and terrifying.” —Horn Book, starred review

“Perfect for fans of both young adult romance and psychological thrillers, The One Memory of Flora Banks is destined to become one of your favorite beach reads of 2017. Promise.” —Bustle

Book Synopsis

“Seventeen-year-old Flora Banks has no short-term memory. Her mind resets itself several times a day, and has since the age of ten, when the tumor that was removed from Flora’s brain took with it her ability to make new memories. That is, until she kisses Drake, her best friend’s boyfriend, the night before he leaves town. Miraculously, this one memory breaks through Flora’s fractured mind, and sticks. Flora is convinced that Drake is responsible for restoring her memory and making her whole again. So, when an encouraging email from Drake suggests she meet him on the other side of the world—in Svalbard, Norway—Flora knows with certainty that this is the first step toward reclaiming her life.”

Here are some behind-the-scenes stills from the production.
