Two of you exist. Only one will survive.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."Stylish, frenetic, and violent, Chapman's debut is the textual equivalent of a Quentin Tarantino movie." --Publishers Weekly"Clever suspense--here, stalking is a two-way street." --Kirkus Reviews

Downloaded excerpt from Netgalley which introduces West and gives us a small taste of the world she, her brother and their friend Chord lives in. The feeling is dark but not gloomy and would love to finish the book someday completely.
