Description-

  • Fans of Cynthia Hand and Sophie Jordan will love Impostor, the sequel to Jill Hathaway's psychological thriller Slide, which Publishers Weekly hailed as "an emotionally taut mystery with depth" in a starred review.

    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 when Vee finds herself in strange situations with no memory of getting there, she begins to suspect that someone else she knows has the ability to slide—and is using Vee to exact revenge.

    With its gripping action and suspense, exceptionally drawn characters, and sizzling romance, Impostor is a fresh and captivating read.

About the Author-

  • Jill Hathaway grew up in Iowa and received her MA in literature from Iowa State University. She is also the author of slide, the first book about Vee Bell. A high school English teacher, Jill lives with her husband and children in the Des Moines area.

    In this sequel to 2012's Slide, Vee suspects that someone is sliding into her own mind, instead of the other way around. Vee has the ability to "slide" into other people's minds and take over their speech and actions. However, she has been having blackouts herself, some leading to near-fatal consequences. Vee and former best friend Samantha patch things up after Samantha learns that Scotch, the boy who menaced Vee in the earlier book, has been spreading rumors about her, and they concoct a plan to retaliate. Everything goes wrong when Scotch falls off a cliff after yet another blackout. Vee doesn't know how Scotch fell, and the girls must hide their involvement in the incident. After a murder occurs, matters become even more serious, and Vee doesn't know whom to trust. Even as all this plays out, Vee realizes she wants to get romantic with friend Rollins, who doesn't seem to reciprocate, and Vee's long-lost aunt shows up and seems to be taking her mother's place in their home. Vee's on-again, off-again romance with Rollins adds some spice and uncertainty, but the major story here surrounds the mystery of who is sliding into Vee. Suspects abound. Hathaway manages to juggle a lot: Family matters, friendship and romance mix with the paranormal elements and the mystery. Hits the right buttons for mystery and paranormal lovers. (Paranormal mystery. 12 & up)

    Gr 10 Up-In this sequel to Slide (HarperCollins, 2012), Vee Bell, who is able to "slide" into the minds of others, is trying to recover from the death of her first boyfriend. Only Rollins, her best friend and potential love interest, knows about her special ability. Then something odd begins to happen: what she first thinks are just vivid dreams are anything but-someone is sliding into her and controlling her actions. Then two potential suspects enter her life: her Aunt Lydia, a replica of Vee's deceased mother whom the teen has oddly never met, and Diane, an older woman who suspiciously manages to show up just when Vee needs help. The situation becomes more dangerous when her mind is hijacked during a prank meant to teach a bully a lesson (which goes terribly wrong). Vee wants to turn to Rollins, but is stopped by jealousy over his new friendship with an attractive classmate. The resolutions to Vee's dilemmas are satisfactory, but leave readers wanting to know more about sliding. Fans of Lisa McMann's "Wake" series (S & S) will enjoy this evenly paced paranormal mystery. Like the first book, Imposter addresses themes that adolescents can relate to: insecurity, trust, betrayal, and revenge. Romantics will also appreciate the roller-coaster relationship between Vee and Rollins. The language and mature situations make this series more appropriate for older teens.-Sherry J.
