I should not exist.
But I do.

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.

Part 4: What's Left of Me
A point that I am really curious about is hybrid marriages. After Addie's reaction to Eva and Ryan, it brought this up in my mind. After all, they are two different people, and I really hope that this is a concept that will be explored further as we venture deeper into the trilogy. All in all, it was a very enjoyable novel and I'll certainly be on the lookout for the other two books. As reviewed by Melissa Finger

Part 3: What's Left of Me
I love Ryan He is so cute, and obviously cares very deeply about Eva. He's the mechanic and the coin sensors he made are just so awesome Not to mention, he's a bookworm too . Hally and Lissa were just the best. While I couldn't find much distinction between their personalities, I really enjoyed their character. I felt so sorry for them though - a half foreign hybrid That's just the hight of social outcast. Also, it's always amazing when there's a character with the same name as you that you really like . My heart went out to Lyle. He was just touched me so much and was filled with so much life. Since it was inevitable that AddieEva were going to have to stay in the hospital, I'm so glad that it meant that he was able to be healthy again He, too, was a bookworm, which was super cool.

Part 2: What's Left of Me
Addie was quite frustrating for most of the book and there were times when I felt like tearing my hair out because of her. In the beginning, she came across as somewhat spoilt, but she seemed to grow out of it as the story progressed. Thankfully, she did change, growing a backbone and becoming strong, I really grew to like her in the end. Eva was so sweet, and I couldn't help but feel sorry for her - trapped, paralysed and unable to move. I'm so glad that she got her chance I love her and Ryan together and even before anything really happened, I thought they were perfect together I feel that we didn't really get to know Devon all that much. He was the hacker, and rather anti-social. While I selfishly wish that something will happen between Addie and him, I know that that's not going to happen synopsis of the third book.

Part 1: What's Left of Me
What's Left of Me is a dystopian novel based in a world of hybrids - that is, two souls in one body - but who end up settling at a young age - as in, one of the two souls permanently leaving. Those who don't are considered abnormal and are hunted and feared. In this world, the government press all sorts of propaganda and lies against hybrids and foreigners, leading people to believe that they are unnatural, dangerous and to be feared. I loved the world building in this book. It was enthralling and while what they did to the people of the Americas without them even knowing and to the hybrids made me sick, that's how you're supposed to feel. As reviewed by Melissa Finger
