Ella Dorner is famously known for receiving Retrograde Amnesia at age 15 
 (a fancy way of saying she forgot every memory she had ever made).

She was forced to learn everything from colors and numbers to the difference between humans and animals; not to mention, all of her closest friends and family. After years of re-learning she shares her story of recovery, giving an inside look to our everyday world from the perspective of a child.

Have you seen the movie
'Groundhog Day' or '50 First Dates'?
Yeah, kinda like that.
But instead of a romantic comedy,
it was like a low budget horror film.
