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?
Oh man, just the thought of being a clone of someone else - being forced to live my entire life to prepare to be them... it is a horrible thought. Yet, it is something I could actually envision happening. I think, for the most part, the explanation of the clones and their purpose was done rather well.
In a few parts of the story I felt it was a bit rushed. There's also some minor editing and content issues for me that took me out of the story a couple times.
My favorite part was how I never knew what was going to happen next. I'm usually pretty good at figuring out at least a bit of what was going to happen next in a story - but I found myself quite surprised at how everything ended up.
Amusing note (and making fun of myself) It took me until I was halfway into the book to realize that Ven comes from the name of her Authentic, Raven.
Also, and very importantly, Linc is awesome.
