A “sweet sixteen” party is supposed to be among the most memorable events of a girl’s life. But on the night of her party, Mercy Clare wakes up in the waiting room of a hospital with no memory of how she got there. To make matters worse, she’s wearing something she would never be caught dead in: her best friend Lyla’s clothes. Mercy’s nightmare is just beginning. The doctor tells her, referring to her as Lyla, that Mercy is lying in the hospital bed waiting to die. A trip to the bathroom confirms Mercy’s fears, as Lyla’s face stares back at her and Lyla’s curvy figure pokes through her tight clothes. But finding out what’s really going on won’t be easy. Because if Mercy wants her body back . . . it might just cost her Lyla’s life.

Gr 9 Up—Mercy, Layla, and Jay are at a party when Mercy is grabbed and almost choked to death. When she wakes, everything is a bit hazy, except for the fact that she is in Layla's body. Her best friend Jay (Layla's boyfriend) finally believes she really is in Layla's body. When Jay leaves, Gage, a new boy at school, tries to explain to her that a breacher is someone who can transfer from one body to another, and why he is a hunter for the assembly, working to kill all breachers. He is currently on a mission to kill Nathaniel, the breacher who was choking Mercy. He neglects to mention that since Mercy is a breacher, too, she will soon be on his list. The dialogue is fantastic, the plot well structured, and the action nonstop, and the suspense of who is telling the truth will keep teen readers captivated right through the end. There is just enough introspection to keep readers engaged with the characters, but not too much to keep them away from the fast-paced action. VERDICT A unique mix of science fiction, action/adventure, suspense, and romance.—Cathleen Ash, Manor High School Library, TX
