{My thoughts} – I’m not even sure where to begin. This book was absolutely, incredibly well written and it is going to leave you unsatisfied and with a bunch of questions. When I’d first started reading this book, I’d assumed it was a single story. I didn’t know until I was halfway through and looked it up on goodreads that there was going to be another book coming out and it was to be a part of a series. I have to admit that after I’d reached the ending of this book, it was much easier to accept how the author had left things, knowing that another would be coming out to help carry on the storyline.

I started this book yesterday afternoon and I’d finished it earlier today. However, I am first now getting around to writing the review. I try not to read any other books until I complete a review once I’ve finished a book. Mainly so I don’t accidentally mess up storylines. I don’t think I could, even if I wanted to mess up this storyline. This is one of those books that are sure to stick with you like Divergent, The Hunger Games, Infinity Lost, and so many others that fall into this wonderful category of young adult books.

I have always enjoyed books similar to this one and I always enjoy a good book that involves a lot of High School Drama. It kind of has a feel of Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard Meets Pawn by Aimee Carter in a sense. I was legit hooked on this book from start to finish and couldn’t stop reading.

Emma is an interesting character. She has her faults and she has her issues. You learn pieces of her back history throughout the book. She has this really great best friend named Oliver, only you don’t actually get to meet him, because he’d killed himself three months before the book started. Then she has her only other best friend Prudence that ends up getting hurt while at school and that leaves Emma feeling all alone without a lifeboat at school.

She attends a boarding school in Vermont and this year her school is taking part in something new. They are inviting Clones to come to school with the other students. The Clones become known as The Similars and there are six of them. Six look alikes of other students currently attending the same school as Emma. So much takes place throughout their arrival, so much happens. There were so many different twists, so many different turns.

If you haven’t had a chance to read this book and you enjoy books in this category, I highly recommend you pick this book up and read it. You won’t regret it and will be hooked from the beginning. It’s an incredible book and I can’t wait until the second one comes out so that I can devour it as well.

Loved it for a while, then abruptly got bored about 80% in, which should have been the big exciting part. But man, I just finished it to finish it. Not expecting to read the next in a hurry.

*I got this book for review from the publisher for my honest thoughts*

I really enjoyed this read. I thought it was the prefect mix between realistic science fiction and thriller. I also thought this book handle topics like clones and prejudice and it was a super compelling read. I also was invested in the various mysteries that were presented in this novel. I found this to be a super fast pace read overall. I did like the focus on friendship and mysteries. I also thought the end of the book was fast pace adventure and really enjoyed it. I also liked the focused on the science in the novel.

I thought this book also handled grief and the the ending twists were super shocking and def. need to read book 2.
