Description-

  • In the final installment in the Hybrid Chronicles--bound to captivate fans of Ally Condie, Lauren Oliver, and Scott Westerfeld--Addie and Eva must come to terms with sharing a body as they fight for lasting change and hybrid freedom.

    Addie and Eva barely survived the explosion at the Powatt institution, but they refuse to sit still as the nation ripples with rebellion. When an ambitious reporter offers Addie and Eva the chance to go undercover and film the wretched conditions of a hybrid institution, the girls jump at the chance to once again take part in the fight for hybrid freedom. As Eva and Addie walk into danger, they cling to each other and the hope of a better future. But the price they might pay is higher than they ever could have imagined.

    Gr 8 Up-Despite a slow start, this conclusion to the "Hybrid Chronicles" ends up having the most compelling plot of the books in this trilogy. It opens with twin souls Addie and Eva recovering in a safe house from the Powat bombing, trying to figure out what to do and where to go after that spectacular failure. They still desire to fight for the rights of hybrids, so when they are approached by an American reporter who wants to reveal to a population who has long been taught that hybrids are insane the horrific abuse of hybrid children, they agree to help her. But what she wants is for them to allow themselves to be locked up in the worst of all the hybrid institutions: Hahns, a stark, icy-cold facility where the inhabitants are mostly ignored until they actually do go insane or die of illness. The girls' courage is great, but the consequences of their brave choice are huge. Zhang had a daunting task in this book: for half of the characters she had to develop a second distinct personality-by this third book there are so many hybrid characters that keeping them straight is a bit complicated. There are a few places where the story requires a bit more suspension of disbelief, but ultimately, the fast-paced plot allows readers to forget these transgressions as he or she eagerly turns the page, anxious to find out what awaits our heroines. Less nuanced than the previous series installments, nonetheless this is a satisfying conclusion that examines the power of story and what it means to be human.-Heather M. Campbell, formerly at Philip S. Miller Library, Castle Rock, CO

    The struggle for hybrid rights goes very public in the conclusion to Zhang's dystopian trilogy.In the aftermath of the Powatt bombing, Eva, Addie and their fellow fugitive hybrids are more notorious and hunted than ever. Nevertheless, when capture and arrest begin to seem inevitable, Eva and Addie, sisters who inhabit the same body, refuse to seek refuge overseas. Instead they strike a deal with Marion, an ambitious journalist who wants to air an expose of hybrid institutions. Marion promises to arrange for the release of Addie's beloved, Jackson, if the sisters go undercover to film the footage she wants. Zhang deftly portrays the horrors of institutional life, and her writing shines when she focuses on Eva and Addie's sisterhood and their interactions with their family and friends. Their tense relationship with Bridget, a returning character from the series opener, What's Left of Me (2012), is a highlight of the novel. The limits of Zhang's worldbuilding and plotting, however, become apparent as the narrative focuses more on the public political fight for hybrid rights. Eva and Addie's increasingly prominent role in the hybrid movement strains credulity, and much of the denouement seems improbable and overtidy.Though some fans of the characters may be satisfied, this finale doesn't fulfill the promise of the series' highly original premise. (Dystopian adventure. 13-17)

  • School Library Journal "A satisfying conclusion that examines the power of story and what it means to be human."
  • Kirkus Reviews "Zhang deftly portrays the horrors of institutional life, and her writing shines."
  • School Library Journal Praise for ONCE WE WERE: "Lovely, atmospheric storytelling...Zhang has envisioned a complex, unique world and deftly brings it to life."
  • Kirkus Reviews Zhang's precise prose skillfully delineates Eva's unique first–person point of view, and the sisters' intense relationship continues to be deeply compelling...fans will have plenty of reasons to be impatient for the third book in the series.
  • Booklist Online "the siblings' desire for autonomy is intriguing, as is the exploration of the politics of enacting change."
  • Lauren DeStefano, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of WITHER Praise for WHAT'S LEFT OF ME: "A shockingly unique story that redefines what it means to be human."
  • Publishers Weekly (starred review) Zhang's concept is original and provocative; the deep bond between Eva and Addie (the shifts between I, we, and she in Eva's narration are especially haunting) and the mystery about why their society is so desperate to 'fix' hybrids are riveting.
  • Lissa Price, international bestselling author of STARTERS A deeply original tale of longing for identity; so skillfully crafted, the words float above the page.
  • Kirkus Reviews An unsettling dystopian adventure of two souls trapped in a single body.
  • School Library Journal Uniquely imagined...Zhang's prose is lovely, and the plot is compelling to the last page.
