When Sophie gets an alarming email from her mother on Skin Island, she hires a pilot to take her there. It turns out that the daring pilot was her old friend Jim. When she arrives at Skin Island, Sophie discovers an alarming fact- she has a twin living on the island. Now, she must face a choice: save her newly awakened and confused sister Lux, or get herself and Jim off the island safely.
I really did like this book because of the storyline. It was just a cool book with a lot of action and adventure and even more twists and turns. The only thing I didn’t like was Lux’s personality. She seemed to simple for a genetically modified being.
One memorable thing about the book is when Jim finally remembers who Sophie is after they talk for a while. It seemed funny and kind of emotional to me.
