Common Sense says
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. - One of the many pleasures of reading dystopian novels is encountering a different but recognizable world, and then uncovering clues to how things ended up this way and relishing the sense of discovery.
Rate this book. Addie and I were born into the same body, our souls' ghostly fingers entwined before we gasped our very first breath. Our earliest years together were also our happiest. Why aren't they settling? We tried to form the word in our five-year-old mouth, tasting it on our tongue. We knew what it meant. Kind of.
Thank you! Like all children, Addie and Eva were born as two souls in the same body. Children who don't settle are labeled hybrids and institutionalized. At age 6, Addie and Eva started seeing specialists to hasten the settling process, but the years of treatments have been unsuccessful. To hide their shame, Addie takes the dominant role and Eva becomes invisible to the outside world, thereby convincing society that they are not a hybrid. Worldbuilding is a little on the thin side, but Addie and Eva's emotions are more than enough to carry readers along. A thought-provoking first installment in a series that unflinchingly takes on ethically challenging topics.
