Description

In the final installation in the Hybrid Chronicles--bound to captivate fans of Ally Condie, Lauren Oliver, and Scott Westerfeld--Addie and Eva must come to terms with sharing a body as they fight for lasting change and hybrid freedom.

Addie and Eva barely survived the explosion at the Powatt institution, but they refuse to sit still as the nation ripples with rebellion. When an ambitious reporter offers Addie and Eva the chance to go undercover and film the wretched conditions of a hybrid institution, the girls jump at the chance to once again take part in the fight for hybrid freedom. As Eva and Addie walk into danger, they cling to each other and the hope of a better future. But the price they might pay is higher than they ever could have imagined.

Back cover copy

To change the world, I may lose everything.

All Eva ever wanted was the chance to be herself. But in the Americas, being hybrid--sharing your body with a second soul--is not tolerated past childhood. Eva and her sister soul, Addie, worry they'll never be able to live freely. Now there are whispers of a revolution, and people are beginning to rethink the hybrids' mistreatment. But will it be enough to change their country?

Then Marion, an ambitious reporter, offers Eva and Addie a daring proposal: If they go undercover and film the wretched conditions of a hybrid institution, she will not only rescue them, she'll find a way to free Jackson, the boy Addie loves. It's a tremendous risk, but if the girls succeed, they could tip the scales toward hybrid freedom. The price they might pay, however, is higher than they could have imagined.
