Reviewing: What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang

So recently I've been on goodreads.com and I'm very proud of the fact that I was able to add a load of books to my read list.

My heart swelled.

Also, this is one book I read just a couple days ago that I loved. It was awesomesauce.

What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang
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.


So I loved the idea, which is very original in my opinion, and the main character was easy to relate to. Eva is a lot like my older sister.

She's calm, level-headed, supportive, and is always calming me down. (hehe)

The plot and characters sucked me in right away. In my opinion, the characters are what the book depends on. And What's Left of Me did not let me down. For this book, the plot was equally fantastic.

Of course, I have to have some negative in-put, so here goes.

I didn't get the reason why the hybrids were such a threat. I just don't. Sorry.

Were two souls in one body so terrible? If they're not constantly battling each other then why is it a threat?

AND THEY'RE PARENTS WERE JERKS. JUST GAH. I DUN LIKE THEM.

This is a quick, confusing review which was forced by my lack of time.

Overall, I rate it 4.5.

Later,

Tansie G.
