Summary/ product description: “What if a killer took control of you?
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 has a very bizarre experience: she loses consciousness and finds herself in a deserted area, at the edge of a cliff, with the broken body of the boy who took advantage of her on the rocks below.
As 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.”

My Rating: êêêê1/4

My Review: I only finished Slide the day before and it took me way less time to read Impostor. I liked it even better than Slide. It kept on turning the pages, not stopping. I’m really getting into this series. Wonder if there will be a 3rd book. It seems like each book is complete in itself. There are no cliffhangers. Everything wraps up perfectly. I still like the characters.

Vee is a very likable and believable heroine. She has her flaws. What she had to go through in this book is terrible. She tried to get her revenge on Scott, but she didn’t mean to hurt him. She slid into him and someone one else was in her body and she doesn’t know what happened. And then her long lost aunt showing up was pretty suspicious. She suspected that her aunt could slide and was sliding into her.

Vee and Rollins are finally starting a relationship beyond friendship, and there this girl Anna that’s getting in the way. Vee become a bit jealous, but it’s clear that Rollins love Vee. I really like them together.

This book was entertaining and thrilling. It has an even bigger mystery and huge secret behind it. I never ever would have guessed what was going to happen. The author definitely tricked us into thinking we knew she the killer was. There’s a huge twist near the end when we find out who’s been sliding into Vee, and another big twist about who the killer is.

I recommend this series to people who enjoyed The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting and the Clarity series by Kim Harrington. Maybe Pretty Little Liars too.

Cover Art Review: Not as good as Slide’s cover. Pink like Vee’s hair was in Slide, but not metallic sadly. I like the color but not the girl photo.
