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 Review:

Tagline: "Intense, fun, and creepy, Slide will have you up all night"

I loved Slide! I devoured in in 1 whole day since it wasn't that short and it was all worth it! Slide was eerie, suspenseful, and a curl under the cover kind of book. It was chilling and it reminded me of Laurie Faria Stolarz's Deadly Little Secret series. I totally was in Vee's shoes and it was a really great and chilling read! :)

Vee Bell has the ability to "Slide" into people's minds. When that happens her body passes out and she goes into the body of the person who touched a certain object a lot. She accidentally slided into her sister's mind and cheated on a test and she also is narcoleptic. But when she slides into a mind of a killer she witnesses a bloody killer that slashed Sophie. Vee's power was really cool and interesting! I actually wished I had that type of power! Definitely could do some serious sliding! :P Vee is now in a situation where she doesn't trust anyone that could be the killer. The sliding idea was definitely cool and enticing :)

I loved Vee a lot! She was quirky, fun, and easy to slip into her shoes. She has this great personality about her that was great. She was always finding the killer, even suspicious of her best friend Rollins. She also meets Zane the new boy in town who's not all she expected at all. Vee's dad was also pretty fun to be around. The book at times where a little predictable but I totally didn't see certain things coming especially how the end all ties up together!

Jill Hathaway does a nice job with all the assumptions you begin to think as the story goes on. She gives you a does of suspense and action but it ends up being something eles for Vee. The writing was perfect and amazing. Slide held me on the edge of my seat and it was like that throughout the whole book! Loved it! Super excited for the next book, Imposter!
