Waiting On Wednesday (15)



Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose *drumroll* Dualed by Elsie Chapman.

Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?


Expected Publication: February 26,2013
Publisher: Random House
Author: Elsie Chapman
Goodreads Page: Click Here


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 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 am I waiting?

This book sounds amazing!!!! I can't even begin to fathom a society who would raise a clone just to see if the original wants life badly enough to kill it. Really, good job to the Author thinking up something so original and twisted *clap,clap* I hope they make a Book trailer for Dualed so we can see the story in action and whet our appetites even more!!


That wraps up my Waiting on Wednesday, leave me the link to yours so I can check it out as well! Have you heard of this book before? Do you think you could kill a genetic copy of yourself? Let me Know In The Comments Below! I love reading your responses.
