Read She, Myself, and I Online Free - Rosa’s got a whole new shot at life…in someone else’s body.
Rosa—an eighteen-year-old from London—is quadriplegic. Her doting (if a bit stifling) parents and charming older brother are her entire world. But Rosa yearns for more; so when a doctor from Boston chooses her to be a candidate for a risky experimental surgery, she and her family move to Massachusetts in search of a miracle.
Sylvia—a girl from a small town in New England—is brain-dead. Her parents have donated Sylvia’s body to Rosa’s cause. Rosa wakes up from surgery as the first successful brain transplant survivor—by all accounts, a medical anomaly. She should be ecstatic, but she can’t help wondering with increasing obsession who Sylvia was and what her life was like.
Rosa’s fascination with her new body and her desire to understand Sylvia prompt a road trip based on discovery and a surprising new romance. But will Rosa be able to solve the dilemma of her identity? Who is she, in another girl’s body?

When I first heard about this book I was actually very excited to read it. When I saw it on NetGalley I had just watched both Criminal (2016) and Self/Less (2015) two movies with the same exact same concept and both strangely staring Ryan Reynolds. Similar to those movies, this book is about a gi...

Wow. This was really thought provoking. I hurt for Rosa. I understood her. I hurt for Sylvia's family. I hurt for Joe. I hurt for Elliot.I hurt for everyone in this book. . .except maybe Jane. This book pulled on my emotions so hard and it really made me think a lot. I highly recommend this book....

I received an ARC of She, Myself, & I from BookCon and while I am exceptionally thankful for that, it in no way affects my review.
I wanted to love this book. From the minute I read the summary, I knew I had to get my hands on it, and my friend and I just happened to be in the right place at t...

Okay, first off, I had a hard time caring about this book because I totally fundamentally believe exactly one thing about brain transplants: you're still YOU. End of story. So for Rosa to be so namby-pamby, "who AM I zomgggg???" was really annoying because I already had a firm opinion about the m...

This book was very... strange to me. I really wanted to like it, but it honestly disappointed me in many ways.
This book explores Rosa after she receives a brain transplant so that she now has the body of a different girl. It's a very unique premise and that's one of the reason I was excited when...

This story is amazing.
It's such a unique concept, but realistic too. It's hard to imagine a brain transplant but it's definitely a possibility for the future. Since other organs can be transplanted into a new body, why not a brain too?
The complications from this kind of surgery are fascinating a...

A pretty good book. The whole idea of it was intriguing, and (thankfully) I didn't get lost in the medical\science aspect of it.
I really liked our main character, Rosa, and I enjoyed her progression through the book.
I know a lot of people had a problem with this book becuase they want to see more...
