I’m sure you’re all to busy reading about the Robsten cheating scandal to notice, but we’ve been away for a bit. Sorry for the lack of posts this week, but I’m in Maine on the first of two week-long beach vacations with my family. I brought three books to read and so far haven’t finished one, but I am almost done with our July Book Club selection, “The Forsaken.” In the meantime, here’s a book I’m patiently waiting to read this fall.
Waiting On: “What’s Left of Me” by Kat Zhang
Publication Date: Sept. 18, 2012 (my birthday!)
Publisher: Harper Collins, 352 pages
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’m not usually a huge fan of sci-fi, but this premise sounded really intriguing when we heard about it at BEA. The world-building and the science would be have to be believable, but heck, if there’s a good enough plot and a little romance thrown in, I’ll be good to go!
