Synopsis (as taken from GoodReads)
When six clones join Emmaline’s prestigious boarding school, she must confront the heartbreak of seeing her dead best friend’s face each day in class.
The Similars are all anyone can talk about at the elite Darkwood Academy. Who are these six clones? What are the odds that all of them would be Darkwood students? Who is the madman who broke the law to create them? Emma couldn’t care less. Her best friend, Oliver, died over the summer and all she can think about is how to get through her junior year without him. Then she comes face-to-heartbreaking-face with Levi—Oliver’s exact DNA replica and one of the Similars.
Emma wants nothing to do with the Similars, but she keeps getting pulled deeper and deeper into their clique, uncovering dark truths about the clones and her prestigious school along the way. But no one can be trusted…not even the boy she is falling for who has Oliver’s face.
This is a great YA, science fiction novel. This novel was unique in concept. The plot to it was vastly different form anything I’ve ever read and i really enjoyed such a refreshing book in such an over saturated market. The twists and turns in this novel still have me reeling. And what an ending!!! I mean wow, very well done.
I am absolutely in love with this authors writing. I could not put this book done. It was a definite one click read for me. The character development was well done an each one contributes to the growth of the story. You really see Emma trying to figure out who she is and growing to be someone stronger.
I was pleasantly pleased with the world building as well. You can tell the author really took time and dedication into making this story something that stands out and will have you wanting more. Overall, I give this book 5 stars! I can’t wait to see whats next!!
