Teen Review: Slide by Jill Hathaway

Vee has narcolepsy. Or at least that's the clinical term. In reality, when she has one of her "episodes," she doesn't just pass out. She slips into someone else's body and sees the world from their eyes. That's how she knows that her sister's best friend's suicide isn't a suicide. Because she was in the murderer's body when it happened. The only problem is Vee is the only one who knows.

Slide is a book worth reading if you're into paranormal/sci-fi type novels. The characters are likeable and the writing is engaging. The only problem I had with the book was that it was a little far-fetched, even for a sci-fi novel. However, if realistic plot elements are not a requirement for you, and if you enjoy strong female characters, put Slide on your reading list.

Rating: 3 out of 5, "a good read."
