Author: Beth Fantaskey
Jill Jekel who is shy and withdrawn meets a guy, completely the opposite of her, who falls in love with her from the first time he sees her. His name is Tristan Hyde. As Jill gets to know Tristan who just happens to be in her Chemistry class, her life spins out of control. Her father is already dead and her mother is devastated. Now Jill has little financial support and she desperately needs the money to go to college, so Jekel teams up with Hyde in a Science Competition. However, Jekel and Hyde find out more than they had bargained for.
This book was a joy to read. Reading about the dual natures of humanity and the classic story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is always stupefying. Who would have thought to continue Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde's bloodline? Who would have thought that Dr. Jekyll might have kept his lab/experiment notes? Obviously, this author did and she did a good job with it too. The plot was well-developed and most if not all of the characters were interesting to read about, especially Tristan Hyde. I found him more well-developed than Jill Jekel. A great book and recommended read!
