Things get interesting when she suddenly slides into what looks like a murder. But who did it and how will she find out before he strikes again? I admit that the first time she slid, it was confusing, but, fortunately, you get the hang of it and dont lose sight of the story. Simple and mediocre, but yet compelling. You just have to know who the killer is. Vee knows Sophie didn't kill herself.
She was murdered.
She knows because she was there. Everyone believes Vee is narcoleptic, but she doesn't actually fall asleep during these episodes: 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. 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.
From BooklistTeenage drama meets Quantum Leap in this exciting debut about secrets and murder. Vee has an inexplicable ability; when falling into what appears to be a narcoleptic state, she is really sliding into the mind of someone elsewatching events through their eyes. The mere touch of an object can trigger an episode, and they seem to.
When she slides into the mind of a murderer who has killed a friend and made it look like a suicide, Vee tries to channel her ability to solve the crime without revealing how she knows the truth.
The story is intriguing and provides just enough information for the reader to piece together the mystery alongside Vee.
The characters are well developed, with the exception of the murderer, whose motive, while believable, is not executed well enough to lift the climax above melodrama. Still, the novel is difficult to put down. While Vees questions about sliding remain unanswered, the knowledge that she can live with who she is may be the greatest truth uncovered.
Grades Skillfully filled with drama and tension, Slide is part mystery, part romance, and wholly engaging with its strong heroine and tornado-worthy twists. I simply could not put this book down. A wonderful, intense story, Slide had me hooked from the first moment Vee slid into someone elses mind.

She is also the author of Slide, the first book about Vee Bell. A high school English teacher, Jill lives with her husband and children in the Des Moines area. I expected it to be darker and for there to be more peril involved, what with an "impostor" involved impostor is a bit of a misnomer, it's not quite the term I'd use , but it never got close to that point.
If there had been more grit and danger Impostor is a step up in the Slide series , but only slightly.
If there had been more grit and danger, the book could have been a killer sequel instead of disappointing. However, on the plus side, the mystery is tighter and better constructed, and I couldn't say for certain that I had figured it out, but I did have an idea I so smart. The other plots are fine, somewhat predictable or didn't go as deep as they could have, but they were alright. All the plots are tied up just a little too neatly at the end, not that there isn't enough of the sliding power to be utilized for future books, but everything ends a little too rosy for the circumstances.
Oh well. In Slide the first book , I found Vee to be a rather shallow characterization and dim as far as picking up on clues. I'm happy to say that changed in this book.
It's a fact okay, my fact, but it still counts. For most of the book Vee spent a lot of time having a snotty, self-absorbed, "woe is me" attitude, which might annoy some people, but made me believe her as a teenage character. Face it, most teenagers can act like that to some degree or another I sure know I could be!
I'm not quite sure where the sliding power is going, if I like where it's gone, or if there's even going to be more books in the series, but it is an idea that has many possibilities. The book deals with sexual assault between teenagers a bit, but does not delve into the issue in a huge amount of depth. Hathaway showed us some different responses from victimised girls and their friends but I felt like the message she was trying to convey got lost somewhere along the way.
The story pulled its punches too much, in that respect. It's easy enough to agree that "that guy is a dangerous jerk", but then another character starts feeling sorry for him because of his family situation and I didn't feel Imposter went into enough depth on that aspect. It wasn't a very long book and certainly not one that was at all difficult to read I mention sexual assault but neither of the girls mentioned actually know what happened and you certainly don't see it on the page.
The different plot lines are intertwined nicely and there was even one slightly surprising revelation.
