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.
I can’t wait to read this book! What about you? What are you waiting on?
