Me on Waiting on Wednesday (66)

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

Title: What's Left of Me
Author: Kat Zhang
Release Date: September 12, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen

From PubCrawl (it has a better summary):

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.

The author revealed the cover on Friday and it's gorgeous. There's the one girl's face, then there's the profile of another face (tilt your head to the right and try to ignore the girl's eye, then you'll see it). And the book sounds so good, maybe a little like Incarnate but not really. I would buy this book just for the cover alone, but the story sounds awesome so that's an even better reason, right? ;)
