Dualed (Dualed #1) by Elsie Chapman

Expected Publication: 26 February 2013 by Random House
Synopsis

You or your Alt? 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.

  4. Yay! I liked this one a lot, but you just have to go in expecting the world building not to make any sense, okay? If you accept that, it will be much more fun. Just a friendly PSA.

  9. Totally waiting on this one. I have an ARC! And I can't wait to read it. I will probably read it in January because I try to read them about a month before the publish date. And I can't wait. Though some of the reviews have been mixed and I'm worried.
