Release Date: September 18th 2012
Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else—two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn’t . . .
For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she’s still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable-hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet . . . for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.
I should not exist. But I do.
That saying, "don't judge a book by its cover," does not apply here. In fact, this might be one of those rare occasions that you should do so. The cover is visually striking. It makes you want to know more. In fact, it is what drew me into the book. I wasn't planning to, but I read the a few chapters on Figment and then decided I must have this book. That's just what I did.
Intriguing to say the least. Can you imagine sharing a body with your sibling? It sucks you in and leaves you breathless all the way to the end.
It started off fast and picked up speed the farther we go.
I fell in love with each of the main characters. They were realistic, strong yet vulnerable. The bond between the sisters and their willingness to fight for each other was the backbone of the story.
