Since Lily was little she remembers Iris. Another girl in her head that speaks to her and has become an important part of her. The night before her birthday, she hears her parents talking about a secret that they will finally reveal to Lily. Her dad dies in a tragic accident the next day and her mom closes herself and refuses to answer any of Lily's questions about what they were going to tell her. Iris is slowly remember things about what might be her former life and pushes Lily to investigate her dad's shed. Lily begins questioning how Iris came to be. Is she a ghost haunting her or is Lily just crazy? The new guy in town, Ty, came searching for help for his brother. He knows more about Lily's dad's past than he is letting on.
Although I had a good guess as to what was going on with Lily and Iris I really enjoyed Lily uncovering each clue. I was really annoyed and angry with her mom for not just telling Lily the truth. For making her go behind her back and search through her father's things. I didn't understand why she wouldn't just be honest. When it was all revealed I sort of understood but a secret like that could have never stayed hidden forever. I enjoyed the relationship between Lily and Iris. I would think having another person inside your head would drive someone crazy, but like in other books such as The Host and What's Left of Me, Lily and Iris have a special friendship. Lily often depends on Iris.
My favorite character was Lily's best friend Wyatt. Lily lives in a secluded area and is home schooled but Wyatt is a nearby neighbor and life long friend. He was very sweet and loyal. I was disappointed and most annoyed that Lily begins to have feelings for Ty while developing more than friendship feelings for Wyatt. I felt like she lead Wyatt on and hurt him. It became a love triangle with jumping back and forth between the boys. The ending was open so I still don't even know for sure where her heart truly laid but I preferred Wyatt. Ty's secrets didn't seem the best way to build a relationship. The ending was left a bit more open that I would have liked. The lead up to the big reveal fell a little short for me. There were some scary characters mentioned that I thought maybe would have showed up or had a bigger impact but they didn't. Lily handles everything really remarkably and it does end with all major questions answered.
Wyatt slides his hand to the back of my head and brings our faces so close that our noses touch. "I'd never lie to you. I'd never try to hurt or confuse you."
But he is confusing me. As our mouths meet, and I taste his lips and our breaths mingle, I can't understand what's happening to me. How can this be Wyatt who is turning my body to liquid heat? How can I be kissing him back as if I'm starving for him?
