Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"I'm lucky just to be alive."

Eva was never supposed to have survived this long. As the recessive soul, she should have faded away years ago. Instead, she lingers 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, Eva and Addie find shelter with a group of hybrids who run an underground resistance. Surrounded by others like them, the girls learn how to temporarily disappear to give each soul some much-needed privacy. Eva is thrilled at the chance to be alone with Ryan, the boy she’s falling for, but troubled by the growing chasm between her and Addie. Despite clashes over their shared body, both girls are eager to join the rebellion.

Yet as they are drawn deeper into the escalating violence, they start to wonder: How far are they willing to go to fight for hybrid freedom? Faced with uncertainty and incredible danger, their answers may tear them apart forever.

    "I woke to the taste of someone else's mouth.
    I woke to an arm curled around my waist. Fingers I didn't recognize tangled in my hair. The warmth of some stranger's body.
    I tore away. I stumbled in the semidarkness.
    Eva, don't scream."

This could get awkward -- and ugly -- real fast.  How difficult it must be to share a body with your sister. Things got heated between my sister and I growing up, and we only shared a room!  :P



What are you teasing this week?  Share it in the comments or leave a link so I can visit!

  8. I haven't even read the first book yet (but want to) and I SO want to read this. I love the teaser and laughed at your comment. Sharing a body with my sister would be a form of torture. Illegal torture.

  10. I can't even imagine how difficult this would be. I keep thinking about conjoined twins, especially the ones that get married. I mean, how does that possibly work? I haven't read the first in this series but it's definitely intriguing. Is it a trilogy or just a duology?
