CAN TESSA POSE AS MADISON . . . AND STOP A KILLER BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE?

Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI.

When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again.

Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep.

Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.

About the Author:

Susanne Winnacker lives with her husband, a dog, and four rabbits in Ruhrgebiet, Germany. She loves coffee (in every shape and form), traveling, and animals.

From Booklist:

In a world much like ours, 16-year-old Tessa is a Variant, a person with special abilities, such as invisibility and mind reading. Tessa’s variation is unusual; she can absorb a person’s DNA by touching them and then shape-shift into a perfect replica at will. Tessa, a member of the FEA (Forces of Extraordinary Abilities, a branch of the FBI), trains with other Variants to hone their respective skills. Unexpectedly, Tessa is assigned to an investigation into a string of murders in the tiny town of Livingston, Oregon. The latest victim, a teenager named Madison, is near death. Tessa’s job will be to impersonate a “recovered” Madison and search for clues to her attacker. Assisted by her true-but-unattainable love, Alec, Tessa discovers that Madison kept many secrets, at least one of which proved dangerous. There is more emphasis on fast action than character development, and brisk pacing sweeps readers through the search for the killer. As in a superhero comic, the romance is a touch melodramatic, special powers are key to solving the mystery, and the final pages smack of a sequel. For other blends of supernatural power and mystery, try The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting or Kim Harrington’s Clarity (2011). Grades 8-11. --Diane Colson
