Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Linda Roberts
Even as a child, Lee knew she was different. She learned that she could change parts of her body at will to resemble a picture or even another person. As she grew older and gained control of her body, Lee learned to change completely, to become another person-man or woman-whatever suited her needs or mood at the time. She was a polymorph, but it was a lonely life in many ways because no one else really understood. Then she met Bonita. After a wild night of sex, drugs, and alcohol, Bonita reveals that she is also a polymorph and hints that there are more out there. When Lee wakes up the next day with a vicious hangover, she does not remember much about what happened the night before, but does remember that she needs to find Bonita again to learn more about who and where the other polymorphs are. As she searches for Bonita with the help of her hacker friend, Freddie, Lee realizes that Bonita is a very dangerous person, involved in a plot to take over a major conglomerate by assuming the identity of the CEO. Lee, with her ability to "morph" into various identities, can stop her, but only at the risk of her own life. This book was very slow to grab my attention and it was not until the last few chapters that I actually felt involved in the plot. The very explicit and graphic sex-hetero- and homosexual-did nothing to further the action of the story. Although the setting is futuristic, the background is never fully developed. I would not recommend this title for purchase. Instead, teens interested in the concept of identity changing or "morphing" might want to try Masque (Warner, 1998) by F. Paul Wilson and Matthew J. Costello, reviewed in this issue. VOYA Codes: 2Q 3P S (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q, Will appeal with pushing, Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).

    good

    i thought this novel was very well written. It had an interesting plot with unexpected twists and turns. It was a little too rated MA for me, but other than that, it was a fantastic rainy day book.
