A riveting new story from Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived. 17-year-olds Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up as identical triplets... until they discovered a shocking family secret. They're actually closer than sisters, they're clones. Hiding from a government agency that would expose them, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, attending social engagements, and a group mindset has always been a de facto part of life... Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, a guy who seems to see into her very soul. As their relationship develops, Lizzie realizes that she's not a carbon copy of her sisters; she's an individual with unique dreams and desires, and digging deeper into her background, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created.

To an outsider Lizzie, Ella and Betsy look like ordinary triplets. They each have their distinct tastes and personalities that set them apart. But they are more than triplets. They are clones. It’s no wonder that their mother wants to keep them sheltered, especially from government corporations that...
There were parts of this that I really loved and parts that felt rushed and contrived. There was great potential to go in a direction I was hoping for but it just didn't go there so I felt something was missing. But I did love the concept and I loved Lizzie and Sean.
