Dahlia 16's life is a lie. The city of Lakeview isn't a utopia that raises individuals for the greater good; it is a clone farm that mass-produces servants for the elite. And because Dahlia breaks the rules, her sisters--the 4,999 girls who share her face--are destroyed. She and Trigger 17, the soldier who risked his life for hers, go on the run, escaping into the wild outside the city walls. But it turns out Dahlia has one remaining identical, one who shouldn't even exist.
Waverly Whitmore is teenage royalty, a media sensation with millions of fans who broadcasts her every move--including every detail of her wedding planning, leading up to the day she marries Hennessy Chapman. Waverly lives a perfect life built on the labors of clones like Dahlia. She has no idea that she too is a clone . . . until she comes face to face with Dahlia.
One deadly secret. Two genetic sisters. And a world that isn't big enough for both of them.

With my foot tapping an impatient rhythm on the floor, I poke the air in the direction of the transparent screen covering the far wall of my bedroom. A clock appears in the center. It’s 12:08 a.m. Seren Locke’s birthday party has just ended, and my friends will be posting about it on their way home.

This is the second one in the series, which I ended picking up from the library, bringing it home, and then realizing it was a series. Luckily I was able to find the first in the series at another local library. After I read the first book, I couldn't wait to pick up the second. I wanted Dahlia 16 and Trigger 17 to be able to be together, but their world was so different from what I'm used too. All the clones. The belief that if something is wrong with one of the clones, they all had to die. This one follows Dahlia 16 and Trigger 17 as they have escaped the city. They have realized that the rest of the world is not like where they grew up. They come from a clone farm that is mass producing servants for the elite. After Dahlia's 4,999 clones are recalled, she finds out she still has one remaining clone on the outside. Her duplicate, who should not exists, is Whitney Whitmore, a rich, popular teenager who has a show that details her everyday life. Whitney has no idea she is a clone. I enjoyed the second book in the series more than the first, I'm not sure if it's by then I was just so into their world, or if it was the book itself. I was rooting for Dahlia. The clone aspect was intriguing. And them trying to keep Dahlia hidden since no one was supposed to know that Whitney was a clone was interesting. Whitney herself grows from a spoiled, rich brat, to somebody who cares about others: the clones. This was such a fun series to read! I read both of these books quite quickly as they were hard to put down. I am eagerly awaiting a third book, if the author decides to write one!
I really love this book, it has a plot that hooks the reader and keeps us interested
