Coming Attraction: What's Left of Me

I'm not going to lie, the cover is what caught my eye on this one. I mean, I guess there are probably similar covers out there (lord knows there are lots of half-faced covers, which is better than half-assed...). But the colors and the wavy cut, and those fantastic eyelashes piqued my interest, I'm not going to lie. And then the synopsis came in, and it did its part, too. I'm a fan of books that plunge you right into the world, but I'm not sure I've ever really seen a synopsis that does that. There's no "In a world..." or "Eva and Addie live in a society where...". No. Instead, you are just plunged in, before you've even begun reading the book, and I like that. I'm intrigued by that.Anyone else have plans to check this one out?

What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang
Sci-fi/dystopia, 356 pages
Expected publication: September 18th 2012 by HarperCollins
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


  1. This book got my attention too. I'm interested to read it when its released. I like how the cover is half a face front on, but if you look at the lines closely (the waves) its another outline of a face. Very creative.

  2. I hadn't noticed that!! Awesome.

  3. I'm eagerly awaiting this one. The cover rocks! I hadn't noticed about the second face on the cover, either.


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