Echoes of Us

17352960Goodreads Says:    To change the world, I may lose everything

All Eva ever wanted was the chance to be herself. But in the Americas, to be hybrid—to share your body with a second soul—is not tolerated past childhood. Now Eva and Addie, her sister soul, are constantly on the move, hiding from the officials who seek to capture them. But the tide is changing. A revolution is brewing, and people are starting to question the hybrids' mistreatment.

Then Marion, an ambitious reporter, offers Eva and Addie a daring proposal: If they go undercover and film the wretched conditions of a hybrid institution, she will not only rescue them, she'll find a way to free Jackson, the boy Addie loves. It's risky, and Eva will have to leave Ryan and her friends behind, but if she succeeds, it could also tip the scales forever and lead to hybrid freedom.

As Eva and Addie walk into danger, they cling to each other and the hope of a better future. But the price they might pay is higher than they ever could have imagined.

My Thoughts:

-    I really like the covers for these books. They are very clever and beautiful. I think they fit the books perfectly.

-    This was probably the best written book in the trilogy. It is fun to see author's improve their writing as their books progress.

-    There was a lot going on in the story, but it wasn't too confusing to follow. There was more tension in this book, and it was just when the story needed.

-    I like Addie and Eva's relationship. They are so true to one another. I love how they can coexist in one body. I think it is wonderful how supportive they are to each other. At the same time, I wish they would squabble more. It would seem more realistic to have disagreements with someone you are sharing a body with. They have an occasional fight, but it isn't very major and they get over it pretty fast.

-    I liked seeing another facility with hybrids. It was like being inside a prison, and I liked how the girl's did small things to keep sane.

-    I liked how the story wrapped up. Things were getting better for the hybrids, and it left me feeling hopeful for character's future.
