Melanie Stryder is a wild human. These are rare.What are wild humans? They are humans that do not have souls. Souls are little 3 inch parasites. They inhabit most of the things that live on the many planets. (i.e. things similar to spiders, dolphins, etc.) You guessed it! It’s science fiction.

Wanderer (nicknamed wanda) inhabits Melanie. Wanda is ‘famous’ for her kind. She’s been to many different planets and hasn’t found one she wants to call home. (This is unusual. Most souls find their home planet after they’ve lived on 2 or 3 different planets.)

But something goes wrong when Wanderer inhabits Melanie. Melanie refuses to fade away. She does her best to keep all her important memories from Wanderer.

As Melanie and Wanderer live ‘together’ they somehow find a bond that’s unbreakable. Will they both be able to live? What will become of the other wild humans? (yes, there are more wild humans)

I LOVED this book. (sorry for the spoiler, though. don’t worry, there is so much more that happens in this book that my little review will not have ruined the book at all) Stephenie meyer analyzes human emotions and love. She redefines what it means to be human. This is one of those books that you can’t put down till the weee hours in the morning (on school nights). Overall, i give it 2 thumbs up, a ten, etc.
