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.

Jill Hathaway grew up in Iowa where she graduated from the University of Northern Iowa. She subsequently received her MA in Literature from Iowa State University and now teaches, writes and lives with her husband and small daughter in the Des Moines area.From Booklist:
Teenage drama meets Quantum Leap in this exciting debut about secrets and murder. Vee has an inexplicable ability; when falling into what appears to be a narcoleptic state, she is really “sliding” into the mind of someone else—watching events through their eyes. The mere touch of an object can trigger an episode, and they seem to be getting more frequent and more intense. When she slides into the mind of a murderer who has killed a friend and made it look like a suicide, Vee tries to channel her ability to solve the crime without revealing how she knows the truth. The story is intriguing and provides just enough information for the reader to piece together the mystery alongside Vee. The characters are well developed, with the exception of the murderer, whose motive, while believable, is not executed well enough to lift the climax above melodrama. Still, the novel is difficult to put down. While Vee’s questions about sliding remain unanswered, the knowledge that she can live with who she is may be the greatest truth uncovered. Grades 8-12. --Kara Dean
