“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 off lately, more distant, 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.”
The love interest definitely took a turn I was not expecting. I thought of it going one way but turn around. This is like. Taking me by surprise of what is really going behind the scene left me giddy. I liked reading about Vee in her emotions toward the guys.
I think the best part of this book is watching the whole story unfold before my eyes. Ms. Hathaway had a real talent for letting things fall together so that the reader gets a great effect of everything in the end.
Slide is undeniably tense and thrilling! Slide is a marvelous captivating book that will leave you breathless after your first slide.
I give it 4 BITES!
