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?
This was a really fantastic book! I absolutely loved being in this book, because yeah, Liv is hearing the voices of a popularity hound, and a non-conformist, which makes her head something of a battlefield, which is why I wish that we got more of those battles, but they stopped around halfway through the book.
I loved how Liv slowly comes into herself, learning who she is, and Spencer's list of things to make up for the childhood that she doesn't remember, from watching movies and listening to music, to bowling, and learning to give a compliment.
There was also the mystery in how her parents reacted when she asked questions about the past, and her dreams, to the point where, when looking at the picture of her mom pregnant, and seeing the date, thinking that she was pregnant with her sister Elizabeth, and thinking that Elizabeth died in the car crash. There's that!
And that ending! It was really great, sweet, wrapping things up, plot wise, and emotionally, wise, because yeah, she just learned that she's made up of the body of one girl, and some parts of another, and both minds are in her, and now she only has herself now.
Yeah, really enjoyed this book, it was quite great, and yeah, I really loved it!
