The Forgotten Girls by Monica Potts
What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang
Eva and Addie are two souls sharing the same body. In their world, everyone is born with two souls and two identities. As they grow they “settle” and one soul fades away leaving the other in control. But sometimes there are souls who don’t settle, and the two souls continue to exist in one body. They are called “hybrids” and the government hates them, fears them, and hunts them down. Even as children. Officially, Eva and Addie have “settled” but it’s all a lie- Eva continues to live on as a passenger while Addie controls their body. Eva and Addie still communicate and Eva longs to be real and her own identity. Even though it could mean their worst fears come true, Addie lets Eva take over their body to experience the world.
