What's Left of Me - Kat Zhang This book has definitely claimed the position of favorite book of 2012 thus far. So far, it seems like I’ve only been disappointed by highly anticipated novels and debut authors, but this. This was astounding, beautifully written, crafted perfectly. Zhang created a world that was new and intriguing and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Eva’s voice was beautiful and heart wrenching, and her longing for things her sister has that she can’t have is so piercing. I’ll admit, I did have high hopes for this book–and for the first time in a long time, I wasn’t disappointed. My expectations were met and exceeded, with only few flaws. What’s Left of Me is truly a masterpiece; I’m already craving the next book, and the first hasn’t even been released yet!*A copy of this ARC was provided by my supervisor at the public library.Read more?
