Junior year gets cutthroat when clones roam the halls…
Similar teens: This fall, six new students are joining the
junior class at the elite Darkwood Academy. But they aren't your regular
over-achieving teens. They're clones. And the "similar" teens are
joining the class alongside their originals. The Similars are all anyone can talk about: Who are these
clones? What are the odds that all of them would be Darkwood students? And who
is the madman who broke the law against cloning to create them? Emmaline Chance
couldn't care less. Her best friend, Oliver, died over the summer and it's all
she can do to get through each day without him. Then she comes face-to-heartbreaking-face
with Levi, Oliver's exact DNA copy and one of the Similars. Dark truths and suspense: Emma wants nothing to do with the
Similars, but she keeps getting pulled deeper into their clique. She can't
escape the dark truths about the clones or her prestigious school. No one can
be trusted, not even the boy she is falling for with Oliver's face.
"A fast-paced thriller about
identity and love." - Publishers Weekly
"Episodic and fast-moving with
plenty of twists and one very big turn that will delight mystery readers."
