Dualed by Elsie Chapman
Two of you exist. Only one will survive.
West Grayer is ready. She’s trained for years to confront her Alternate, a twin raised by another family. Survival means a good job, marriage—life.
But then a tragic misstep leaves West questioning: Is she 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 herself, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.
Exact duplicate clones are placed with separate families and when they near adulthood are forced to kill each other so that only one survives – the one worthy of living. It’s a bizarre dystopian civilization where the authorities are still secretive in this first novel. Just the rules are laid out. And the story focuses on West’s family and the choices she makes.
Dualed is first in an action-packed, scifi duology for young adults. Packed with intense suspense, drama, and adventure – this was a hard novel to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced, impressive debut.
