Review & Giveaway: Slide by: Jill Hathaway

Goodreads Summary: 

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.

My Review: 

ReadingNook Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Sylvia (Vee) has the ability to slide into other peoples minds when she touches something they've "imprinted" on. She slides into the mind of the man who killed her sisters best friend Sophie, whom everyone thinks committed suicide. Who can she tell though, without knowing who the killer is, and who would believe her, when the story sounds so crazy, even to herself.

I know this book has had some mixed reviews, but I absolutly loved it. This type of book is right up my alley, with the psychological thriller aspect of it. I was on the edge of my seat throughout this whole book and found myself zipping through the pages to find out what happened next. I read this whole book in one day, and pretty much in one sitting minus small breaks to eat and use the restroom. I couldn't put this book down, and although some reviews felt disapointed with the ending, I really liked it. I like who the killer ended up being, and didn't feel like it came out of left field at all.

This book had crazy twists and turns and i'm so happy this is the first in the series, because I can't wait to get more of these characters. Vee and her best friends Rollins were very easy characters to like, and I thought they were both well-developed and easily relatible.

If you like "who done it?" type books, or psychological thrillers of sorts, then I think you'll really enjoy this story, I know I did, and can't wait to read more from Jill.
