Author: Jill Hathaway
Series: Slide #2
Summary: Vee Bell’s gift (or curse) of “sliding”—slipping into the mind of another person and experiencing life, briefly, through his or her eyes—has been somewhat under control since she unwillingly witnessed the horrific deaths of her classmates six months ago.
But just as things are getting back to normal, Vee has a very bizarre experience: she loses consciousness and finds herself in a deserted area, at the edge of a cliff, with the broken body of the boy who took advantage of her on the rocks below.
As Vee finds herself in stranger and stranger situations with no memory of getting there, she begins to suspect that someone she knows has the ability to slide—and that this “slider” is using Vee to exact revenge on his or her enemies.
My Thoughts: Impostor by Jill Hathaway is the perfect sequel to last year’s Slide. Actually, it’s a bit better. A bit less melodramatic, less farfetched. And maybe a bit more surprising. The whodunnit part is not so simple as it seems. The reader gets led in one direction, only to find herself changing course, then changing again … all to find she didn’t see it coming at all!
There are new characters introduced, all of whom are suspect for one reason or another. While some seem more likely than others, it’s easy to see reasons for each. Especially with the somewhat convoluted (while entertaining) plot in the first book!
I’m being purposely vague here, because I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone. There are some surprising plot developments and twists, and I don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun discovering what they are for themselves. Suffice it to say that I really enjoyed Impostor. It’s actually a fast read – holds the attention from start to finish – and a wild ride. If you read Slide, make sure to get your hands on this one, too!
