This Week's Book

by Elsie Chapman

Dualed #1

Coming February 26th 2013
from Random House Children's Books


Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?

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.



I am really looking forward to the release of this book as it looks like awesome-sauce take on a dystopian world. Just think about it. Training your whole childhood in order to battle out with your twin in a fight to the death. Everyone in the world would be a murderer... freaky.
