    {Review} Bunny by Mona Awad

We nearly died. We very nearly did, didn’t we?” Samantha Heather Mackey couldn’t be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England’s Warren University.

They are not what is written in lore or whispered by the superstitious. They look and act like humans. They live and love and die like humans. Puberty is just a bit more stressful for those with the recessive gene. And while some teenagers worry about high school, others dread their next set of teeth. Vampires are real, but in a social climate still struggling to accept that truth, do teeth alone make them…

But the jubilation is short lived when the patients don’t respond to their names and insist they are different people. It is suggested all four are suffering from fugue states until one of the doctors recognizes a name and verifies that he not only knew the girl but was there when she died in 1992. It soon becomes obvious that the bodies of the four patients are now inhabited by the souls of people long dead. Second Lives has an amazingly creepy cover and an intriguing…
