What's Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles, #1)
What's Left Of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles #1)
Author:  Kat Zhang
Published by:  HarperCollins
Pages:  352
Synopsis:  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 gave this book 4 out of 5 stars  
My review and thoughts:  While this book starts out a little slow, it really packs a powerful punch and ends strong.
Imagine a world where everyone is born with two souls in one body.  Eventually over the years one fades away while the other soul takes total control of the body.  What happens when this doesn't happen?  What happens when you don't ever settle?  You have to live a secret life and pray that no one finds out because bad things happen when the wrong people find out.  This is what is happening to Eva/Addie. 

Eva/Addie always has to be careful.  Never having close friends.  Lying to her parents.  Because if someone finds out, you will be taken away.  The ones who are taken away never come back.  When Eva/Addie let their guard down for a split second, everything changes. 
I love dystopian, science fiction novels and this one did not disappoint.  I am very excited that there will be more books in this series.  You need to read this when you get the chance.
Now for the fun part.  I am giving away my ARC of What's Left Of Me.  I enjoyed this book a lot and would like to pass it onto someone else.  Please enter in the Rafflecopter below.  Due to shipping cost, this giveaway is U.S. only.
