Slide by Jill Hathaway. Pub.HarperCollins, 2012.

This novel is a psycho-drama. Lots of drama, lots of psychotic characters. It is also a murder mystery that leaves you guessing until the end. You do get clues but piecing them together takes some doing, but they are there.

Vee suffers from narcolepsy, in other words she goes to sleep at the most awkward of times and places. While she is under her mind slides into another character. She never knows who she will slide into and cannot read the other persons mind while she is in there. All she can do is experience what they are doing.

Two murders of young teenage cheerleaders take place and made to look like suicides and Vee was in the mind of the murderer when one murder happened. What can she do?

There are a host of potential murderers including a teacher, a new hunky boy at school, an old boy friend, even her father. Can the answer be in the past?.

This novel keeps you on edge and keeps you in the book. In between times you experience teenage, school and family relationships. Teenagers can be really mean to each other but they can also be very supportive. Try and guess who it is..

Worth a read if you want something different. Mainly for High school students. I liked it.
