Fans of Stephenie Meyer's The Host will enjoy What's Left of Me, Kat Zhang's shocking, thought-provoking, and emotionally charged story of two souls sharing one body.
What's Left of Me, the first book of the Hybrid Chronicles, is set in an alternate reality where everyone is born with two souls. But one soul is naturally dominant, and in early childhood, the other soul fades away.
That didn't happen for Addie and Eva. Now fifteen, Eva clings to life inside the body she shares with Addie, although she can no longer speak or even move.
Addie does everything she can to hide the presence of her sister soul. Eva's very existence is illegal. If their secret is revealed, it could mean death for both of them.
I should not exist.
But I do.
Like everyone else, Eva and Addie were born sharing a body—two souls woven together. But as they grew, the whispers began. Why aren't they settling? What if they end up as a hybrid? 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, trapped in a body she can no longer control—until two other hybrids learn her secret and offer her a way to move again. When the teens are caught, they are shipped off to a remote facility determined to stamp out the recessive souls . . . permanently. Eva and Addie must escape before they lose each other forever.
