Description

In the second novel in the Hybrid Chronicles--perfect for fans of Ally Condie, Lauren Oliver, and Scott Westerfeld--Eva and Addie struggle to share their body as they clash over romance and the fight for hybrid freedom.

Addie and Eva escaped imprisonment at a horrific psychiatric hospital. Now they should be safe, living among an underground hybrid movement. But safety is starting to feel constricting. Faced with the possibility of being in hiding forever, the girls are eager to help bring about change--now. The answer seems to lie in a splinter group willing to go to extremes for hybrid freedom, but as Addie and Eva fall ever deeper into their plans, what they thought was the solution to their problems might just be the thing that destroys everything--including their bond to each other.

Back cover copy

I am lucky just to be alive.

As the recessive soul, Eva wasn't supposed to survive this long, lingering in the body she shares with her sister soul, Addie. When the government discovered the truth, they tried to "cure" the girls, but Eva and Addie escaped before the doctors could strip Eva's soul away.

Now fugitives, they take shelter with a hybrid resistance movement. Despite growing tensions between Eva and Addie, they both throw themselves into the cause. Soon they've joined a splinter group willing to resort to questionable methods . . . but as Addie and Eva fall ever deeper into their plans, the girls must decide how far they're willing to go to fight for their new lives. What they thought was the solution to their problems just might be the thing that destroys everything--including their bond to each other.

Zhang s precise prose skillfully delineates Eva s unique first person point of view, and the sisters intense relationship continues to be deeply compelling fans will have plenty of reasons to be impatient for the third book in the series.--Kirkus Reviews"
