Vee Bell is certain of one irrefutable truth--her sister's friend Sophie didn't kill herself. She was murdered.

Vee knows this because she was there. Everyone believes Vee is narcoleptic, but she doesn't actually fall asleep during these episodes: When she passes out, she slides into somebody else's mind and experiences the world through that person's eyes. She's slid into her sister as she cheated on a math test, into a teacher sneaking a drink before class. She learned the worst about a supposed "friend" when she slid into her during a school dance. But nothing could have prepared Vee for what happens one October night when she slides into the mind of someone holding a bloody knife, standing over Sophie's slashed body.

Vee desperately wishes she could share her secret, but who would believe her? It sounds so crazy that she can't bring herself to tell her best friend, Rollins, let alone the police. Even if she could confide in Rollins, he has been acting distant lately, especially now that she's been spending more time with Zane.

Enmeshed in a terrifying web of secrets, lies, and danger and with no one to turn to, Vee must find a way to unmask the killer before he or she strikes again.


HOLY SNAPS! I did not expect that to happen. I did not expect that to be the killer and for those reason. I can't believe what happened. I was crying because I refuse to believe the ending. Oh my god. There were so many twists at the end. Like how many twists can you reveal to the reader without them spazing out!

Just picture you’re reading the book and it’s going a relaxed pace. It’s starting to end and BOOM. Multiple twists hits you and you don’t know what the actual is happening. Shit is going down in 80% out of 100% part of the book and it just ah.

Vee is the main protagonist and she can slide into people and see what they see but can’t hear their thoughts. After one of her sister’s friend dies, Sophie. Well, technically, she was murdered but you get the point. So now, it’s up to her to figure out whole this killer is and why he/she is doing this.

Now I really and I do mean REALLY hate her sister and her friend Amber. She’s a bitch, annoying, and one of those cheerleaders that are over-emotional that makes them look like an idiot. Yeah, I have a lot of hate for them… mostly her sister. That’s the only complaint I had for this book. I HATE HER SISTER!

Zane, I guess is the love interest and Rollins is also like that but they’ve been friends for a long time now. It’s not really a love triangle and it’s hard to explain this because then there’s going to be spoilers and yeah.

Overall, I felt that this was one of those WTF books because of the ending and THE ENDING! Gosh! I still don’t believe it.
