This book had my interest in just a few pages. Abithica feels like she is parasite taking host in other peoples bodies and transfered to another without any warning or information but when living the life of Sydney she starts breaking all her rules of not getting involved everything gets complicated. The relationship between Abithica and the new family she encounters was just so well covered and developed it made me keep reading more and more to find out who she really was. There was another story going along as well a much darker side but at the end it felt like it was not  completed and left me with questions. Overall this book had me guessing all the way to the end what was going to happen and it did not disappoint me. I truly enjoyed reading it.

Summary: (from Author) Abithica must borrow all that she is from others:  names, lives, even bodies, but only for periods of time she cannot control.  What is she, and why is she compelled to fix the lives of the people she inhabits, even the despicable ones?

When she switches into the troubled life of Sydney Turner, she ends up breaking the one rule that has sustained her, the one thing in her control—never get attached—and learns the pain of loving and being loved in return. 

Author Bio: After receiving a journalism degree, Susan was an Undercover Private Investigator for Pinkerton, worked as an outside Sales Rep at Dun & Bradstreet, and then spent five years in pharmaceutical sales.  Today, she is living her dream with her high school sweetheart and their two daughters in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, Arizona, where she spends her days unleashing her rampant imagination and documenting all the crazy places it takes her.
