Tessa has the uncanny ability of being able to transform into anyone she touches - so long as they're alive - sorry Elvis lovers. It's something she doesn't mind too much, until the organization that employs and trains her tells her she needs to go to the hospital and touch a dying girl named Madison.
Madison was just your typical teenage girl with secrets, trying to survive high school long enough to move on. Unfortunately, a serial killer took that all away. Being the only victim to survive, Tessa knows taking on Madison's life will be risky. But with the bad comes the good - the chance to have a real family, friends, even possible love interests. But as motives begin to surface, she realizes the serial killer could be any of these people, and suddenly Tessa doesn't feel so safe anymore.
Imposters was a pretty good fish out of water story. Tessa has her own romantic issues to deal with, and becoming Madison and having to deal with hers, only escalates the ones Tessa has. Not to mention all the distractions of trying to learn everything about Madison and trying to figure out if she was just a random victim of coincidence or intentionally targeted. And when the investigation uncovers some unnatural commonalities between the deaths, the fear that maybe another Variant like Tessa was responsible for the killings becomes an issue. Because really, facing off against a human was one thing, but facing off against another Variant with unknown powers, could prove deadly if Tessa doesn't figure out the puzzle fast.
