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.
Okay, this book sounds creepy…
Which is why I’m sure I’d be very interested in it. It’s different. It’s intriguing.
I’ve read certain books where for some reason, two characters end up sharing a body. For instance, in Rick Riordan’s Kane Chronicles, the Egyptian gods could merge with a magician, who would become their host. But WLOF is completely different as the characters were always in the same body. Weird.
As for the cover, I really like it. I love how there seems to be two people there if you look hard enough. Sure, the girl up-front is very obvious, but can you see the other one? There her eye is, there is a nose pointing out. You just have to look at the outline. The colours are simple but effective, and for once, I’m not annoyed at seeing the character’s profile picture.
