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.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Read! This book has a really interesting concept which is incredibly addicting to read. I love mystery and this book fulfilled. The on-again-off-again relationship between the main character and another variant was really annoying. The relationship dragged the attention away from the action. I couldn't help rolling my eyes everytime they interacted.
