#58: Linked - Imogen Howsen

When Elissa learns her telepathic twin is the subject of government experiments, the girls find themselves on the run with secrets worth killing for in this futuristic, romantic thriller.
Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. Now, all she has is nightmarish visions and unexplained bruises. Finally, shes promised a cure, and a surgery is scheduled. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the truth behind her visions: Shes seeing the world through another girls eyes. A world filled with pain and wires and weird machines. Elissa follows her visions, only to find a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl Lin who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. A twin she never knew existed.

Elissa helps Lin evade the government agents who are ruthlessly tracking her down, but they're struggling to avoid capture, and soon Elissa is forced to turn to the only person who can help: Cadan, her brothers infuriating, arrogant best friend, and new graduate of the SFI space flight academy. Cadan is their one chance at safety. But Lin is too valuable to let go, and Elissa has knowledge that is too dangerous. The government will stop at nothing to get them back.

Review:
I was able to read this book for free online and am so glad I took that opportunity. It is fantastic!
I devoured every page, every scene, every moment. I had to see how the girls would get out of it all. And man, at times I was so worried they wouldn't get out at all. Never mind edge-of-your-seat, this is mind-bending action that you won't be able to stop reading. 
I think I am slightly swooning for Cadan too.... and that is shocking. He's the guy you love to hate and then find yourself daydreaming about. The all-time, good-bad boy! Yep.
A clean and worthy read by any one of any age. It is geared to tweens and teens, but I know a few moms and dads that will really enjoy it too!

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
