Wishlist Wednesday: Slide

Vee Bell is certain of one irrefutable truth—her sister’s friend Sophie didn’t kill herself. She was murdered.

Vee knows this because she was there. Everyone believes Vee is narcoleptic, but she doesn’t actually fall asleep during these episodes: When she passes out, she slides into somebody else’s mind and experiences the world through that person’s eyes. She’s slid into her sister as she cheated on a math test, into a teacher sneaking a drink before class. She learned the worst about a supposed “friend” when she slid into her during a school dance. But nothing could have prepared Vee for what happens one October night when she slides into the mind of someone holding a bloody knife, standing over Sophie’s slashed body.

Vee desperately wishes she could share her secret, but who would believe her? It sounds so crazy that she can’t bring herself to tell her best friend, Rollins, let alone the police. Even if she could confide in Rollins, he has been acting off lately, more distant, especially now that she’s been spending more time with Zane.

Enmeshed in a terrifying web of secrets, lies, and danger and with no one to turn to, Vee must find a way to unmask the killer before he or she strikes again.

I'm not going to lie - a certain book has made me prejudiced against characters named Vee.  So when I saw the MCs name, I was hesitant.  But - but - it sounds really cool.  It's like being able to read minds, taken to the extreme.  Being able to be minds; that's pretty trippy.  I'm curious about this one, for sure.
Anyone else looking forward to this, or curious at least?

What's on your wishlist?


  1. Sounds really interesting. I've read quite a few books where the protagonist is able to read minds, but this is way cooler.

  2. Haha, yeah, it's amazing how just a characters name can bring out certain feelings. This one does sound good though.

    Our WOW pick is at Book Sake.

  3. Oooh I hadn't seen this one before! Great pick!
    My Wow Post!

  4. Oooo! I really like the description and cover! Definitely on my list now!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
