Waiting on Wednesday: Linked by Imogen Howson aka TWIN EDITION

Happy Waiting on Wednesday, folks! A big thanks to Jill at Breaking the Spine for hosting WoW, a weekly meme that showcases upcoming releases we can't wait to read.

This week's WoW here at YAF & WS is about TWINS. Since Crazy Camper and I are twins, I am always drawn to twin stories -- even, yes it is true, The Lying Game on ABC Family. (Luckily, I got out of that vortex at the end of last summer. But it was serious for a while). Linked by Imogen Howson has twins mixed with sci-fi for the win!

LinkedElissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere. Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes.

Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed. Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world.

Riveting, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, Linked will make you question what it really means to be human (GoodReads).
