Plot:

Imagine skydiving or bungee-jumping or snowboarding down a glacier and you never have to leave your room. Imagine being sixteen and hooking up with the crush-of-your-life, and you never have to put on lip gloss. Meet Cassie Stewart, who can project her mind into other people at will. She sees what they see, feels what they feel, but she can’t read their thoughts. It s a wild ride, but harmless. Or so she thinks. Until a fatal hit-and-run makes Cassie realize she is in a unique position to help solve the crime. It s exhilarating to use your talent to help others, and, yeah, an enormous power trip as well. But what if something goes wrong and you can’t get back? What if the body you’re trapped in is committing a murder and the person he’s murdering is you?

I wanted to read this simply because reading minds is a hobby. After I read that our main character can sky jump without actually having the sky or the jump involved I was hooked.

Experience

I don’t know… I guess I liked it?

I liked the first half more than the second half.

I was annoyed by the characters. It was a bit unrealistic. The characters were not alive to me. The fights were annoying

The book was a bit unremarkable for me.

I enjoyed the concept and the originality of being able to experience life through the eyes of another. However I feel the characters were weak the fights were petty.

The relationship of the overprotective mother was too overbearing and the plot overall confusing.

I neither liked or disliked the book I simply read the book.
