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.
Killing yourself takes on a whole new meaning, huh?
I actually found this one last week while checking out some WoW posts so I'm sure a lot of you have seen it, and doesn't it Just. Sound. Epic!? This one is 100% up my alley and so far my most anticipated debut of 2013 (2013!!! *sobs*) so I just had to feature it today. I also just met Elsie on Twitter and 1) she's Canadian! Booya!! And 2) she seems totally awesome. Plus, this cover is badass! Conclusion: WAAAAANNNNNT!
What book are you excited for this week?
