* * *Dualed by Elsie Chapman
Release Date: February 26, 2013
You or your Alt? Only one will survive.
"Dualed" is a thrilling high-concept YA where citizens must prove their worth by killing their Alts--twins raised by other families.
The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. 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. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage--life. 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.
I love dystopians. And this concept just blows my mind. I can only imagine what sort of angst will be involved in a society that requires only one version of a person to live. It brings up all sorts of questions that I can't wait to find answers to! I can't believe I have to wait until next year to read it though. Eep!
