Theme

The theme of this story is to set a goal and not back down from it no matter what the circumstance and no matter what obstacles get in your way.

Amnesia

In my book Candace loses who memory just like a person suffering from amneisa would expirence loss of memory. One type of amneisa (The one Candace expirenced) is retrograde amneisa. According to Why-Sci retrograde is whre "all memories prior to a certain point are whiped out." Like Candace a retrograde is triggered when a trama occurs (Why-Sci). "Other forms include transient global amneisa, which is a temporary loss of memory." Transient global amneisa is where a person takes a hit or blow to the head. Almost all amneisa problems are caused by a trauma, hit to the head, or disease just like Candace in my book.
