I should not exist. But I do.
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.
Why everyone thing this is a contemporary story? I have no idea why cause when I saw it for the first time I knew it was a dystopian story. Now when we've settled that let's move to the story.
Dystopian genre is really blooming and I've read a different stories and concepts but this one is also new for me. The story here is about souls. Technically about two souls. The story has it that since the birth everyone has a two souls in their body and during the years one becomes dominant and the other one disappears and that's called settling. Only our main characters Eva and Addie are still two persons in one body or how they call it - hybrids. The thing here is that only Addie knows that Eva exists for all the others there is only Addie...until one day when they make new friendship. Soon enough their lives completely change and they need to get out of the mess they got themselves into.
While What's Left Of Me is a story with a different concept still many events are well-known. The beginning of this book was really great and enjoyable. I easily got into the story. But I can't say the same for the last part of the story, cause then it fell into the pattern that was not so unknown. Still the book left a lot of unanswered questions and can't wait to read the sequel.
Rating: 4 stars.
Until the next time,
