Rating: 6

In Mackenzie Bishop’s world, when people die, the part of them that’s their story goes to the archives. All their memories, feelings, and experiences are indexed and cataloged in a History that gets stored away. Like her Da before her, Mac is a Keeper, charged with making sure those histories don’t escape. When her family moves to the crumbling apartment house called the Coronado to escape from the memories of the death of her younger brother Ben, Mac starts trying to question her role and to find a way to reconnect with Ben through his History, something that only Librarians are allowed to do.
