Me on Waiting on Wednesday (95)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Linked
Author: Imogen Howson
Release Date: March 28, 2013
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

From Goodreads:

Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere.

Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes.

Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed.

Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world.

Riveting, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, Linked will make you question what it really means to be human.


Yes, it does sound rather interesting, doesn't it? It seems to be a new trend popping up, two people in one body or two people sharing one body or two people with a connection but only one can survive and they're supposed to make the reader question humanity or what it means to be human or to be alive. And the cover is rather pretty, all brown and beige and a bit like it's suffering from a stutter. :)

    Basically, I can't wait to read this one either.
