  I absolutely love what Jill has given us with this novel. A page gripping suspense that you won't put down until you're finished. A deep and emotional journey through the hard and rough life that Vee has no choice but to deal with as she struggles with her life, and the rare issue she has to deal with. She could give in, and pop pills all day, could run to her father and complain of her many issues that she has, but she doesn't. Vee has such a strong backbone and such strong will to go through every day as things seem to get worse for her. Jill Hathaway has made Vee a character quite like no other. Just what can she do?
  Vee has the ability to enter other peoples minds for short periods. Let me also say that she certainly doesn't do this by choice. I might also add that she is a narcoleptic so it's when she's fighting sleep the most that the 'slide' happens. This is what she has labeled it. Her mom had narcolepsy too. Vee would love more than anything to talk to her. She passed away though. Vee can't help but wonder if she ever went into other peoples minds.
  It's something that Vee can learn to deal with, (has) learned to deal with until she slides into someones body and watches as she realizes that whoever it is just murdered her sisters best friend. It was made to look like suicide and that's exactly what the cops said in the police report. As Vee starts to slide again she knows she can't let this happen like the last time. She is the only one who can stop it. But can she?
