Editor reviews

The narrator of this well-crafted tale is a monster without a name, a shape-shifter who kills human beings and assumes their form. That's normal for his breed, but this is a monster with a conscience, one who thinks and feels just as much as the average human - if not more. And when he takes on the shape of a violent high-school linebacker with a troubled family, he is thrown into a toxic stew of relationships that will leave the listener questioning who the real monsters are. Performer Brad Raimondo perfectly captures the swaggering small town bravado, the doomed romance, and the beguiling complexities of this thought-provoking novel.

Summary

Doppelgangers are monsters, hardwired for murder.
They are not supposed to have doubts, but this one does. He wishes he could be different. More human, maybe. But even that can't stop him from killing people so he can take their places and live their lives. He has to do it; it's who he is.
But when the doppelganger murders a small-town teenager, assumes his shape, and takes over his life, he's shocked by the world he steps into. Engulfed in a whirlwind of peer pressure, messy family dynamics, and a provocative relationship with a beautiful girl, he quickly learns that there's more than one way to be human, and many ways to be a monster.
Told in the tortured voice of a most extraordinary teen, this contemporary gothic romance brews a captivating combination of violence, desire, and atonement. Here is the story of a monster yearning for a human life.

well, I`m not sure

Any additional comments?

the concept was great, the start was gripping, it fell away a bit and got soppy. would make a great really horrific film. A bit like Under the Skin in its concept
