She sees through the eyes of a killer...Everyone thinks Vee is narcoleptic, but her secret condition is far more terrifying. When Vee passes out she slides into other people's minds and can see the world through their eyes. It's been happening for long enough that she thinks she's gotten a handle on it. But nothing prepares her for sliding into someone holding a bloody knife, standing over someone's body. Vee wishes she could share her secret, but who would believe her? She can't bring herself to tell her best friend, let alone the police. But when someone else ends up dead, Vee knows she must find a way to unmask the killer before they strike again. Slide is a killer read written with a brilliant and super-slick style that will leave you breathless.

***This review needs to be rewritten because it sounds extremely preposterous***
Slide was a good read, it wasn't great and it wasn't terrible. Slide is the story of Vee (Sylvia) who is diagnosed as a narcoleptic, but she really gets unconscious and slides into our peo... ...more
