Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me.

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face.

Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has never needed Ven . . . until now.

When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?

I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

The beginning of the story reminded me very much of the film The Island starring Ewan McGregor. I was a little worried it would be too alike, but I was pleasantly surprised how different the story turned out to be.

It was a great story that kept me guessing the whole way through. I never really knew the bad guys were and what they wanted. There was always something happening.

Ven was a really good main character, she never settled for her lot in life until she realised in doing so could help save many people.

Linc was an interesting love interest. He was conflicted until he found out what was going on, but he was a strong and loyal character which was great.

Overall it was a great book and I looking forward to the next one in the series.

4 out of 5 stars
