What's Left of Me
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?... show more
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.

Because he was a criminal.For being hybrid and free.For putting others in danger with his very presence. First of all: Brava, Ms. Zhang, brava, for coming up with this unique concept. Two souls inside one body, one destined to fade away? That's impressive. I must say, this concept is so strong, so p...
This book is amazing and I couldn't put it down. I love how Kat Zhang wrote this book because you have to be very talented to write this book, because to write a book in first person with two people living inside someone is very hard. I think this book is about finding yourself, because its easy to ...
tl;dr - |✭✭✭✩✩| So, I wanted to like this book more than I did. I listened to it on audiobook, and the reader did a fine job. But I just couldn't get that in to the story, and I don't think I'll be continuing the series. Description - Eva and Addy have a secret, one that they fight to protect everyd...
