What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang
Goodreads synopsis:
NEVER LET ME GO meets HIS DARK MATERIALS in a beautiful, haunting YA debut, the first book in The Hybrid Chronicles.
Eva and Addie live in a world where everyone is born with two souls, but where only the dominant one is allowed to survive childhood. Fifteen years old, and closer even than twins, the girls are keeping Eva, the ‘second soul’, a secret. They know that it’s forbidden to be hybrid, but how could they ever be apart?
When a dramatic event reveals what really happens to hybrids if they are discovered, Eva and Addie face a dangerous fight for survival, neither wanting to be the one left behind…

I'm so excited about this book that I actually already have the US hardback edition pre-ordered, and it's not released until September! The concept it so exciting - two souls living in one body, until the dominant soul pushes the other out at a certain age, and then the person is left with just the one soul - but then there's a hybrid, who keeps both souls?! That sounds amazing. It actually sounds a little bit 'Jekyll and Hyde', but less sinister...
And I feel the need to justify this ... the reason I've pre-ordered the US hardback instead of just getting the paperback when it comes out in the UK, should be obvious. Look at that cover! It's amazing - not to mention really clever! Half of one face, cut out in the shape of another face ... I'm mesmerised by it!
It's going to be a very long summer, waiting for this book!

Hm, this one kind of reminds me of the host, with two people sharing a body! I might have to check this one out when it's released. :D

I'm ashamed to say that I've not read The Host, but I actually prefer the sound of this one.
Will have to read both and see what I think ;)

I think I'm right in saying that the premise is slightly different though!

It sounds fantastic and I haven't heard a lot about it

I'm so getting the Never Let Me Go and Dark materials vibes, but it seriously reminds me of The Host at the moment, too. It sounds AMAZING ^__^

Wow first time hearing about this book. Seems interesting, especially the two souls concept.

Caro said...

This is on my tbr, too! I'm really looking forward to reading this, because it has that double personality conflict. I'm sure that's gonna be awesome to read!

I agree with you that cover is amazing. Two souls in one body, now that does sound intriguing. What's Left of Me is on my tbr read list also.
