#BookReview of Falls the Shadow by @stefaniegaither

Falls the Shadow (Falls the Shadow #1)
About the Book: 

When Cate Benson was a kid, her sister, Violet, died. Two hours after the funeral, Cate’s family picked up Violet’s replacement. Like nothing had happened. Because Cate’s parents are among those who decided to give their children a sort of immortality—by cloning them at birth—which means this new Violet has the same smile. The same perfect face. Thanks to advancements in mind-uploading technology, she even has all of the same memories as the girl she replaced.

She also might have murdered the most popular girl in school.

At least, that’s what the paparazzi and the anti-cloning protestors want everyone to think: that clones are violent, unpredictable monsters. Cate is used to hearing all that. She’s used to defending her sister, too. But Violet has vanished, and when Cate sets out to find her, she ends up in the line of fire instead. Because Cate is getting dangerously close to secrets that will rock the foundation of everything she thought was true.

In a thrilling debut, Stefanie Gaither takes readers on a nail-biting ride through a future that looks frighteningly similar to our own time and asks: how far are you willing to go to keep your family together?

About the Author: After co-managing a coffee shop for several years while simultaneously earning her B.A. in English, Stefanie left the small-business world behind to focus on her author career instead. Now, in addition to writing YA novels, she also works part time as a copywriter for an advertising agency. She lives near Charlotte, NC with her artist husband, a ridiculously spoiled shih-tzu named Shakespeare, and a baby-to-be (currently affectionately known as Bumpeh) who will be making her debut in early December.

My Review: Falls the Shadow pretty much had me from the first sentence.The story was quick moving and I couldn't put it down. It had plenty of twists and turns, so it kept me on my toes. It was really thought-provoking too. It  makes you think about morality of the whole story. I loved the characters, and there is romance! It starts out as insta-love but it turns into something much more with the depth as the story goes on. Overall, it is a fun and exciting read!
