Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else--two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren't they settling? Why isn't one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn't...
For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she's still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable-hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet...for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.
There are a couple reasons why I really like this cover. While there seems to be more and more covers showing only half of a girl's face, I like how they twisted it around on this cover. It's as if it's going to consume all of her and we just see a snapshot of it before it covers the whole page.
Her eyes tell a good story as well. They look watery as if she was crying. The expressions she has is stony, but sad and I like the coloring around her forehead. If you read the synopsis (come on, if you didn't, GO BACK), it's pretty obvious to emphasize "me." At the same time, I didn't notice it at first and when I did, I thought it was a nice touch.
I've had this on my wishlist for a while and this was supposed to be my first Cover Love, but other covers kept drawing my attention. However, personally, I thought this cover deserved some love as well.
