Summary (adapted from Goodreads:) Vee Bell’s gift (or curse) of “sliding”—slipping into the mind of another person and experiencing life, briefly, through his or her eyes—has been somewhat under control since she unwillingly witnessed the horrific deaths of her classmates six months ago. But just as things are getting back to normal, Vee finds herself in stranger and stranger situations with no memory of getting there, she begins to suspect that someone she knows has the ability to slide—and that this “slider” is using Vee to exact revenge on his or her enemies.
Review of Impostor by Jill Hathaway
I really enjoyed Slide, the first book in this series.
While Slide was definitely a mystery -- with main character Vee convinced that mysterious "suicides" at her school are actually murders and trying to solve the crimes by sliding into the consciousness of the suspects, Impostor starts out as more of a creepy suspense story.
As in Slide, Impostor features plenty of suspects and tons of weird happenings. Jill Hathaway excels at fast-paced plotting and twisty writing. In Impostor, I was never sure what was going to happen or who to suspect. There are also a few romantic complications for poor Vee, which had me chewing my nails, as Rollins - with his leather jacket and his zine -- is one of my favorite YA book guys.
I have really enjoyed this series and am excited to see what happens next. There's a revelation near the end of Impostor that suggests that things might get even more interesting for Vee in books to come.
