Asked by gabbygat on Mon 20, Mar 2017 07:17am :
I remember a book where this boy is riding on a bus and I think there was a
crash. He loses his memory. He gets kidnapped. He has powers.
Toward the end he was sitting in a prison room and closed his eyes, and
with a lot of detail remembered a safe room to go to, and once he'd fully
remembered every detail he was able to transport there. Where he could tell
the man there where he was being held (I think).
At the end I think there was some chase around hedges?
But also he'd been kidnapped with this other girl.
It turned out in the end that he'd lost his memory and the girl he was
kidnapped with was actually his cousin who'd been looking for him. They
realize his actual name is Jan (I think? I remember thinking it was odd
because it was typically a girl's name).
So now he has family and a home.
I can't remember the name of it. Any ideas?
