Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?
The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.
Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.
Doesn't this sound fantastic? I think so too, although it does sound a little similar to another book coming out soon which I can't remember the title of to save my life. Either way, I'll be reading this one for sure. I love the cover and it just sounds so creepy! What do you think?
What are you waiting on this week? Leave me a link in the comments and I'll come check it out!
