Sixteen-year-old Nadia Lake’s marriage has been arranged with the most powerful family in the Corporate States. She lives a life of privilege even if she has to put up with paparazzi tracking her every move, every detail of her private life tabloid fodder. But her future is assured, as long as she can maintain her flawless public image—no easy feat when your betrothed is a notorious playboy. Nathaniel Hayes is the heir to the company that pioneered human replication: a technology that every state and every country in the world would kill to have. Except he’s more interested in sneaking around the seedy underbelly of the state formerly known as New York than he is in learning to run his future company or courting his bride-to-be. She’s not exactly his type…not that he can tell anyone that.But then Nate turns up dead, and Nadia was the last person to see him alive.When the new Nate wakes up in the replication tanks, he knows he must have died, but with a memory that only reaches to his last memory back-up, he doesn’t know what—or rather, who—killed him.Together, Nadia and Nate must discover what really happened without revealing the secrets that those who run their world would kill to protect.

I had two misgivings when I started reading this book.1. The genre: YA dystopian is a topic that has always drawn me in; I love the idea of the world falling into chaos and the renewed society that forms from its remnants, but more often not, the YA dystopian novels I've read have left me completely...
