Goodreads Synopsis
Vee Bell is certain of one irrefutable truth—her sister’s friend Sophie didn’t kill herself. She was murdered. 

Vee knows this because she was there. Everyone believes Vee is narcoleptic, but she doesn’t actually fall asleep during these episodes: When she passes out, she slides into somebody else’s mind and experiences the world through that person’s eyes. She’s slid into her sister as she cheated on a math test, into a teacher sneaking a drink before class. She learned the worst about a supposed “friend” when she slid into her during a school dance. But nothing could have prepared Vee for what happens one October night when she slides into the mind of someone holding a bloody knife, standing over Sophie’s slashed body. 

Vee desperately wishes she could share her secret, but who would believe her? It sounds so crazy that she can’t bring herself to tell her best friend, Rollins, let alone the police. Even if she could confide in Rollins, he has been acting off lately, more distant, especially now that she’s been spending more time with Zane. 

Enmeshed in a terrifying web of secrets, lies, and danger and with no one to turn to, Vee must find a way to unmask the killer before he or she strikes again.

My Thoughts
Slide is a completely different book than I am used to. I guess I can kind of describe it as a thriller, of sorts.  The whole concept of Vee sliding into other people’s bodies is just mind blowing for me! I never thought of someone switching bodies for any amount of time. This whole thing is just so completely new to me.

Really, the whole book was one twist after another. Someone killed a girl named Sophie, and Vee had slid into this person’s body just in time to see the end result. She goes on a small investigation. At one point, she thinks her best friend, Rollins, may be the killer. I was almost crushed by this revelation! Rollins was my favorite character. He is badass, adorable, and honorable. He is also completely in love with Vee. She just doesn’t know it, which is a tad frustrating. But, I like being frustrated over romances, most of the time.

Jill Hathaway weaves a tangled story of lies, deceit, and secrets in a perfect way. Just when you are suspecting one person as the murderer, another clue turns up that spins your head. In the end, I was completely blindsided in the reveal of the culprit, even though there were small clues along the way. It was a brilliant web that left my jaw full open.

Fans of psychological thrillers will most likely enjoy Slide.  I liked the twists and turns so much. It also helped to have a couple of hot boys in the mix.

Favorite Character: Rollins

Least Favorite: Scotch

Great review! This sounds like an excellent read. I've seen this one around a lot lately, and I can't wait to read it. It's certainly a fresh take on the paranormal scene.
