Waiting on Wednesday

23 May

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected publication: September 18th 2012 by Harper

NEVER LET ME GO meets HIS DARK MATERIALS in a beautiful, haunting YA debut, the first book in The Hybrid Chronicles.

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.

5 stars
This book is one of my favorite books to date. It is a constant page turner. Every chapter leaves you longing for more.
The book focuses around a girl name Beatrice. She lives in the Abnegation faction. At the yearly choosing ceremony she is forced to make a decission between choosing a different faction or staying with the one she was born into. This decision will effect her whole life. If she chooses another faction she will be forced to separate completely from her family. She takes a test that tells which faction she is fit for and finds the results to be unsettling.
I would recommend this book to anyone! It has action, suspense, and romance. The books tells the story very vividly and clear. The book is very well written and worded. I was highly impressed with it and it was the authors first book. She has recently released book number two called Insurgent.
A Faction is where people live together who value the same thing.
