Waiting on Wednesday (32) THE ORIGINALS by Cat Patrick

Waiting on Wednesday is brought to you by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way for bloggers to share the books that they are waiting on. This week I’m waiting on:

The Originals by Cat Patrick. Release date: May 7 2013 (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers). I’m so excited to see more science fiction titles coming out, especially for teens.  Patrick just released a book this past May called Revived (her second book, I believe) and this will be her third. I have to admit that stories about clones scare me, and cloning raises all sorts of questions about individuality. Here’s the description from Goodreads:

A riveting new story from Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived.

17-year-olds Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up as identical triplets… until they discovered a shocking family secret. They’re actually closer than sisters, they’re clones. Hiding from a government agency that would expose them, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, attending social engagements, and a group mindset has always been a de facto part of life…

Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, a guy who seems to see into her very soul. As their relationship develops, Lizzie realizes that she’s not a carbon copy of her sisters; she’s an individual with unique dreams and desires, and digging deeper into her background, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created.

  1. I see this book popping up more and more. Clones creep me out but in a good way. I think this book will end up being very good especially with her being a triplet clone!

    Thanks for stopping by My WoW and sharing yours!

  2. I haven’t heard about this book before so thanks for spotlighting it! I’m a fan of Forgotten and and I like the sound of The Originals too.

  3. Great choice!! I looove Cat Patrick! I haven’t read Forgotten but I read Revived and loved it. And Cat Patrick is just so sweet! I’ve talked to her a few times on Facebook and stuff. The Originals sounds just as awesome as her other books and I can’t wait to read it!
