This book was a little different for me. But as a reviewer I owe it to my readers to give them my best opinion. I felt bad for Clara because she thought in some small way she was helping the main character Elias with his dissociative identity disorder. This is a YA book centered around something that we don’t hear a lot about these days, dissociative identity disorder.
Elias is the one that has the disorder and Clara met him by accident as a result of their bags getting mixed up on a plane ride. Clara is soon pulled into Elias’ world and suddenly realizes that there are two Elias’, and no I don’t mean twins. She starts to have feelings for this man and that’s is only the beginning of her problems with this individual.
This book was a little hard to keep up with and frankly I felt like it was just too much for a teen to read about. The writing was done pretty well and I felt like the author was well researched but I felt like the disorder itself is a little too deep for young adults or even children as young as teens. Both characters are very strong and very deeply woven into the tapestry of the overall story.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
