~*~Summary~*~

 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.

Elsie Chapman’s suspenseful YA debut weaves unexpected romance into a novel full of fast-paced action and thought-provoking philosophy. When the story ends, discussions will begin about this future society where every adult is a murderer and every child knows there is another out there who just might be better

~*~Why I'm Waiting~*~

It's honestly really hard to even express how eagerly I am anticipating this book. Just look at the summary! It's action packed, which I love, but it somehow manages to weave some romance into the tale, which I love even more. And to make it even more enjoyable for me, it's littered with thought-provoking philosophy. I love philosophy and themes that make you sit back and think. This looks like it'll be the perfect novel for me!
