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 have wanted to read this book since i saw it during the armchairBEA.  I have to say that it was the cover that attracted me too it- how amazing is this cover? along with the title.  The face with that expression-female and looking sad, only part of the face showing, but then it is shown within a siloutte of a side rpofile of the face.  Links to the 'blurb' on the back amazingly.....two souls in one one body (hence 2 faces as such) and the female is looking sad as she is meant to be gone but isn't.  Also the wording with the 'ME' in the largest font. I love it, esp with the grey colours in the cover.  I think the book sounds great and a fantastic read-i know another dystopian book but i love them right now, i have never read a book about two souls in one body.  Then all the risks they are going to take, just for Eva, will Addie and Eva turn on each other? ohh i cannot wait to read it.

<~~~~~~~~~~This is the UK paperback cover, how disappointing that they have added colour to it. I will not be buying it in paperback!!







I have an e-arc of this for review and cannot wait to read it, watch out for the review at the start of Sept :)

What is everyone else waiting for?
