Review: Impostor by Susanne Winnacker

Impostor coverTessa can be anyone. Her Variation allows her to absorb DNA and perfectly mimic another person’s appearance.

Madison is a serial killer’s latest victim. She was still alive when she was found, but she will never wake from her coma.

When Tessa becomes Madison, trying to draw the serial killer out for the authorities before he can strike again, the number of possible suspects is almost overwhelming. From Madison’s ex, who claims to desperately want her back, to Madison’s own brother, Tessa has no idea who she can trust. And Madison was keeping secrets, even from her best friend…secrets that might have led to her death.

Although the stress and danger of living a lie take their toll, the loving family Madison will never see again is incredibly tempting to Tessa. Just being a normal girl with a normal family and friends is something she never thought she would experience. While Tessa struggles to find the killer and deals with her ability going haywire, she also fights the urge to stay Madison, forever.

Impostor will appeal to fans of the X-Men with it’s obvious similarities, as well as to murder mystery fans.

Recommended for grades 8 and up – no on-camera sex, but kissing and sexual references, plus quite a bit of violence
