When Cate Benson was twelve, her sister died.
hours after the funeral, they picked up Violet’s replacement, and it
was like nothing had ever happened. Because Cate’s parents are among
those who decided to grant their children a sort of immortality—by
cloning them at birth. So this new Violet has the same smile. The same
laugh. That same perfect face. Thanks to advancements in mind-uploading
technology, she even has all the same memories as the girl she replaced.
She also might have murdered the most popular girl in school.
at least, that’s what the paparazzi and crazy anti-cloning protesters
want everyone to think: that clones are violent, unpredictable monsters.
Cate is used to hearing all that, though. She’s used to standing up for
her sister too, and she’s determined to prove her innocence now—at
whatever the cost. But the deeper she digs for the truth, the further
Cate's carefully-constructed life begins to unravel, unveiling a world
filled with copies and lies, where nothing and no one—not even her
sister— is completely what they seem.
In a pulse pounding debut,
Stefanie Gaither takes readers on a nail-biting ride through a future
that looks frighteningly similar to our own time and asks: how far are
you willing to go to keep your family together?
