Siri, Who Am I? tells the story of a Kardashians-obsessed woman who wakes up in hospital with amnesia. With a torn party dress, broken iPhone and Instagram account, she must piece together her identity… only to discover that her life is a perfect lie…
Sam Tschida’s comedy is out now (and it’s optioned to a major Hollywood studio!) and to celebrate we have two copies to give away!
But first, here is a synopsis of Siri, Who Am I?…
Mia might look like a Millennial but she was born yesterday. Emerging from a coma with short-term amnesia after an accident, Mia can’t remember her own name until the Siri assistant on her iPhone provides it. Based on her cool hairstyle (undercut with glamorous waves), dress (Prada), and signature lipstick (Chanel), she senses she’s wealthy, but the only way to know for sure is to retrace her steps once she leaves the hospital. Using Instagram and Uber, she arrives at the pink duplex she calls home in her posts but finds Max, a cute, off-duty postdoc supplementing his income with a house-sitting gig. He tells her the house belongs to JP, a billionaire with a chocolate empire. A few texts later, JP confirms her wildest dreams: they’re in love, Mia is living the good life, and he’ll be back that weekend.
But as Mia and Max work backward through her Instagram and across Los Angeles to learn more about her, they discover a surprising truth behind her perfect Instagram feed, and evidence that her head wound was noaccident. Who was Mia before she woke up in that hospital? And is it too late for her to rewrite her story?
“Mia, my main character wakes up in an LA hospital in a designer dress with no memory,” author Sam Tschida wrote in her recent guest blog for SciFiNow. “She writes off her memory loss as inconsequential because she believes her entire life is on her phone. All she has to do is scroll through her Instagram…”
