Eva and Addie were born just like anyone else, two souls in the same body. They took turns learning to walk, to run to dance. But as they got older, neither of them faded. They were both still there. They weren’t settling.
Their parents took them to doctors, specialists, begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced normal. Eva was gone. They could start over.
But Eva isn’t gone. Only Addie knows that she’s still there, trapped inside their body, unable to move, unable to speak. Except to Addie.
Only Addie knows that Eva would risk anything to be able to speak. To walk. To dance. Anything.
But when Eva gets her chance, it opens up a whole new world for them…one more dangerous than either girl could imagine.
What’s Left Of Me is a dystopian story exploring ethical issues in a world not our own…yet shockingly similar. It will appeal to fans of Neal Shusterman’s Unwind series, Lois Lowry’s The Giver, and other thought-provoking dystopian literature.
Recommended for grades 6 and up – mild profanity, kissing, some graphic descriptions of medical procedures.
