Becoming Animals, by Olga Werby
Humans have always wanted to know what goes on inside the minds of other animals. But what if humans could become animals? Toby's father leads a team of neuroscientists directly connecting the brains of humans with those of animals. And Toby is a prodigy at throwing her mind into the animal subjects in his lab-she's the best there is.

But Toby suffers from cystic fibrosis and she's not likely to live into adulthood. Could a radical plan to embed her consciousness into an animal allow Toby to survive? And what does it mean to live without a human body?

Welcome to Hamlet. Population: 192.

You can't find it on any map, GPS or directions site. A small village tucked between a mountain and a valley, Hamlet is the sort of place where everyone knows everyone -- and their business, too.

Murders are even rarer.

A treacherous storm, a flat tire and a touch of serendipity causes Tessa Sullivan and her husband Jack to stumble upon the narrow strait that leads into Hamlet. It was supposed to be a one night stop until the rain let up and Jack could figure out how to fix the tire -- ...
