Item Details

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.

This is a great book and I read it in one sitting. I find the idea somewhat more interesting than the story, but I love the story as well. I am very excited for the next book in the series and would recommend this book to anyone who likes the description- it fits pretty well.

A good read, although the beginning drags a bit. Since this is the first book in a series, I'm glad that not everything was tied up too neatly but the end still felt like an ending and leaves room for the series to go forward. The Hally character seemed to be a significant character at the start, but we never really get to know her & throughout the middle section, the character practically fades from the book. I wanted to know more about things from her point of view. I'm looking forward to reading this series!

A fabulous read with a really interesting concept!

Looking for your next good dystopian read? Well look no further than this captivating and chilling novel by Kat Zhang! In Eva and Addie's world every human is born with two souls. As a child, the souls grow by leaning to speak and walk. Eventually however one of the souls becomes the dominant soul and the other soul fades away.

Not in the case of Eva and Addie.

Eva is declared to have faded but she is still there. Eva and Addie are a hybrid and hybrids are not welcome in society. But Eva wants to live, and will have to find a way to be present with out risking both her and Addie's life.

Check out the trailer- and make sure you take a second look at that book cover!
