On My Wishlist is a weekly meme that is hosted Cosy Books. It runs every Saturday, and it’s where we list all the books we desperately want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.
On my Wishlist this week, I have What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang.
I found this book on a blog, and just had to add it to my wishlist. Not only does the story sound awesome, but the little trick with the face in the cover looks cool. It comes out 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.
