Virginia White leads a normal life; she helps her mother with chores, she runs around after her older brother, and she is very much so alive. But when a game of capture-the-flag during a violent storm goes desperately wrong, Virginia's world is tipped upside down. Waking up in an unfamiliar setting with a man who insists that she should be dead, Virginia will have to decide for herself who she can trust and when to run. With a group of fanatics chasing after her, an old man who claims she is supposed to replace her dead daughter, and mysterious warning from a young girl, where will Virginia turn? Why is Virginia alive? Or is she even that?

Opinion: 

While the book was intriguing in the concept, the execution was somewhat lacking. The story dragged on, and while mysterious, was not particularly engaging. I was not emotionally attached to any of the characters, and Virginia seemed rather flat and two dimmensional. I think the story would have moved along better if it had been shortened a bit; as it was, it was rather tedious to read. I liked the idea of the story, but it became monotonous and tiring after a while, especially as nothing ever seemed to actually happen. Altogether, it was an interesting idea, but needed some work.
