Description

Fans of Stephenie Meyer's The Host will enjoy What's Left of Me, Kat Zhang's shocking, thought-provoking, and emotionally charged story of two souls sharing one body.

What's Left of Me, the first book of the Hybrid Chronicles, is set in an alternate reality where everyone is born with two souls. But one soul is naturally dominant, and in early childhood, the other soul fades away.

That didn't happen for Addie and Eva. Now fifteen, Eva clings to life inside the body she shares with Addie, although she can no longer speak or even move.

Addie does everything she can to hide the presence of her sister soul. Eva's very existence is illegal. If their secret is revealed, it could mean death for both of them.

Back cover copy

I should not exist.

But I do.

Like everyone else, Eva and Addie were born sharing a body--two souls woven together. But as they grew, the whispers began. Why aren't they settling? What if they end up as a hybrid? 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, trapped in a body she can no longer control--until two other hybrids learn her secret and offer her a way to move again. When the teens are caught, they are shipped off to a remote facility determined to stamp out the recessive souls . . . permanently. Eva and Addie must escape before they lose each other forever.

Review quote

"A shockingly unique story that redefines what it means to be human." -- Lauren DeStefano, New York Times bestselling author of Wither

Zhang's concept is original and provocative; the deep bond between Eva and Addie (the shifts between I, we, and she in Eva's narration are especially haunting) and the mystery about why their society is so desperate to "fix" hybrids are riveting. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A deeply original tale of longing for identity; so skillfully crafted, the words float above the page." -- Lissa Price, international bestselling author of STARTERS

An unsettling dystopian adventure of two souls trapped in a single body. -- Kirkus Reviews

"Uniquely imagined...Zhang's prose is lovely, and the plot is compelling to the last page" -- School Library Journal

"An intriguing depiction of sibling relationships and the challenges of learning to live as distinct, though not physically separate, individuals." -- Booklist
