Characters & Plot Points: I liked how easily I got pulled into the story! Vee is the protagonist, who is an ex-cheerleader, who has bright pink hair and a whole lot of spunk. The story is told from a first-person perspective, which is starting to grow on me. I immediately really liked Vee and I thought she was a great character. She seemed very down-to-earth, tell is like it is, type of character who helps to move the story along at a comfortable pace.
There was a kind of love triangle going on in this book, but I don't think it was fully realized. I wasn't expecting to see a whole lot of romance in this story from reading the synopsis, but there is a small bit of romance thrown in for good measure. I'm not even sure if you would call it a love triangle. There were two guys who were attracted to Vee, but I don't think they were fighting for her affection. This felt like a nice change of pace when compared to similar young adult books. So much of the romance in books now feels very fake, and Vee's felt much more realistic.
This was very much a sleuth novel, just like I expected it to be. I thought it was well done and it was thrilling enough to keep me turning the pages.Read more ›
Vee has the ability to enter other peoples minds for short periods. Let me also say that she certainly doesn't do this by choice. I might also add that she is a narcoleptic so it's when she's fighting sleep the most that the 'slide' happens. This is what she has labeled it. Her mom had narcolepsy too. Vee would love more than anything to talk to her. She passed away though. Vee can't help but wonder if she ever went into other peoples minds.
It's something that Vee can learn to deal with, (has) learned to deal with until she slides into someones body and watches as she realizes that whoever it is just murdered her sisters best friend. It was made to look like suicide and that's exactly what the cops said in the police report. As Vee starts to slide again she knows she can't let this happen like the last time. She is the only one who can stop it. But can she?
When she wakes up, she looks around but can't figure out who she could have slid into. When her best friend Rollins begins acting weird around her, she doesn't know what to think. The new boy in town, Zane, keeps her attention though and she really enjoys his company, but she doesn't want to lose her friendship with Rollins. But when another of her sister's friends is found dead in the football field, Vee is adamanant that it's too much coincidence for two cheerleaders to commit suicide and steps up her feelings that Sophie was murdered. But who will she slide into next that will give her that important clue?
Hathaway lures readers into the web she spins with her storytelling, captivating them from the very first page and leaves them totally satisfied. From the depth of her characterization to the tight plotting, readers will be enthralled with this suspenseful and page-turning read!
The opening of SLIDE was rather awkward because the idea of Vee randomly `sliding' into the minds of other people isn't established for several chapters. And when it does finally happen, no explanation is given for how or when it started or really what theories Vee has about it. Eventually, yes, we do learn when it started (and it's one of the stronger scenes in the book), but the delay really hurt my reading experience. What also hurt was how rushed everything was. The character growth, the romantic developments, the murder mysteries, and suspect motives. It's unfortunate because the bones of the plot and the premise for the supernatural twist had real potential (see below for a few other similar but stronger titles).
SLIDE should have been twice as long in order to appropriately deal with all the complex and weighty issues it attempted to tackle. Eating disorders, bullying, teen pregnancy, adultery, sexual assault, suicide, and two other BIG issues that I won't reveal because they would be spoilers. Hathaway writes well enough that it could have been great. Instead I suffered whiplash as all these serious issues were raised and then resolved (for the most part) in just a few paragraphs. The ending is especially grievous in that sense.
There is a sequel planned titled IMPOSTER that is scheduled for a March 2013 release. I can only hope that it's page length is worthy of the topics it covers.
