I am so excited to be a part of this great cover reveal today! Not only is this cover AMAZING, but the story sounds fantastic and I cannot wait to get to read it!
What if your life wasn’t your own? Liv comes out of a coma with no memory of her past and two distinct, warring voices inside her head. Nothing, not even her reflection, seems familiar. As she stumbles through her junior year, the voices get louder, insisting she please the popular group while simultaneously despising them. But when Liv starts hanging around with Spencer, whose own mysterious past also has him on the fringe, life feels complete for the first time in, well, as long as she can remember. Liv knows the details of the car accident that put her in the coma, but as the voices invade her dreams, and her dreams start feeling like memories, she and Spencer seek out answers. Yet the deeper they dig, the less things make sense. Can Liv rebuild the pieces of her broken past, when it means questioning not just who she is, but what she is?
Olivia reached up, feeling the tender spots on her head. Her fingers brushed across a row of—were those little ridges made of metal? “Careful. The staples are almost ready to come out, but it’s still going to be sore for a while.” Staples?! Her stomach rolled. I have staples in my head? She lowered her now-shaking hand. “Can I get a mirror?” Mom looked at Dad, then back at her. “I don’t think that’s a good idea. Not until you’ve healed a little more.” Mom patted Olivia’s leg. “You just relax. We’ll be back in a few minutes.” The two of them left the room, but when Mom swung the door closed, it didn’t latch. Olivia could hear their voices in the hall. “I still think we should…” She couldn’t make out the rest of Dad’s muffled words. “…know if I can do this.” “…late for that,” Mom said. “We’d lose everything, including…” Her voice faded as they got farther away. “…have to move.” Olivia could tell the conversation was tense, but the words were impossible to decipher now. Holding a hand in front of her face, she turned it back and forth. A plastic tube ran from her arm to a machine next to her bed. She peeked into her nightgown and stared in horror at the long red stripe running down her chest. Sick. You’re alive. You shouldn’t be thinking about looks.
Lowering her hand, she scanned the room. I wonder how my face looks. From the way Dad stared at me, plus the fact Mom won’t let me see a mirror, it must be bad. Brains are more important than looks. That’s what ugly people say. Olivia put her hands on her head and squeezed. “Stop it,” she whispered to her arguing thoughts, hysteria bubbling up and squeezing the air from her lungs. What was happening to her? Why didn’t she recognize her parents or know where she was? Who she was? Tears ran warm trails down her cheeks. “Just make it all stop.”
