Lola was never any good at math. Just thinking about it makes her head hurt: Two arms, two legs, ten fingers, ten toes. One brain, eight alter egos. Sometimes, the numbers just don't add up. Of course, it doesn't help that an unknown factor has been added to the equation - a new alter who insists he has all the answers. But maybe he does. At least he mixes the equation up...

After more than thirty years in a mental hospital, dissociative identity disorder patient Lola Murray thought she'd finally silenced the voices. But after her mother's death, Lola finds herself right back where she started, plus one.

As she lays dormant in a mental hospital, her eight alter egos must decide-once and for all-to merge or let Lola go forever. What does it take to get a control freak, a know-it-all, a recluse, comedian, dreamer, protector, techy, and child to agree? It's really a matter of how you, they, or "we" see the bigger equation. Is it possible for nine to become one? Nine lives. One body. Will a merge finally set them free?

I couldn't wait to read this final installment of Lola's story. The addition of a new alter had me intrigued and I needed to know if there was any chance of Lola getting to live a semi-normal life. As the alters struggled amongst themselves, Lola worked hard on her end and things were finally looking like they could get on the right track. This was a brilliant series and I thoroughly enjoyed Lola and all of her personalities. I was pleased with the way that it ended, but it was bittersweet to be finished with this series.

To say I have a book hangover is putting it mildly!! This book consumed me and dragged me through some emotions that left me drained and honestly, exhausted. But I loved every word I read and the knowledge I gained about DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) is priceless!! This book sucked me in and Lola and each one of the alters were like friends I became very fond of and when they started talking about merging I actually became sad, and the "ugly cry" that had me stopping to collect myself more than once really surprised me!! The stories that Lola writes are so interesting and mesmerizing, they really had me thinking about the stories in the story. The multi-layering was an aspect that made this book even better and time did not exist as I delved deeper and deeper into the Merge!! I can't tell you enough how much I enjoyed all three of Lola's books, and I definitely recommend you set aside a huge chunk of time to really get into this book because you will NOT want to put it down for ANYTHING!!! I really admire the knowledge this author has about mental health and she even has helpful notes at the end of the book that really are informative and may even help someone who didn't have the tools to help themselves. So if you aren't convinced by now I will say it outright-BUY THIS BOOK!!! You will be VERY happy you did, plus, how could you ever leave Lola and the alters hanging after reading the first two books?!! Enjoy!!
