#BookReview for The Similars (The Similars #1) by Rebecca Hanover

Synopsis: When six clones join Emmaline’s prestigious boarding school, she must confront the heartbreak of seeing her dead best friend’s face each day in class.

The Similars are all anyone can talk about at the elite Darkwood Academy. Who are these six clones? What are the odds that all of them would be Darkwood students? Who is the madman who broke the law to create them? Emma couldn't care less. Her best friend, Oliver, died over the summer and all she can think about is how to get through her junior year without him. Then she comes face-to-heartbreaking-face with Levi—Oliver's exact DNA replica and one of the Similars.

Emma wants nothing to do with the Similars, but she keeps getting pulled deeper and deeper into their clique, uncovering dark truths about the clones and her prestigious school along the way. But no one can be trusted…not even the boy she is falling for who has Oliver's face.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟
My Review: Although I think that some people will love this book but for me I just don't really care about clones.  For me clones are just the same as whatever they are cloned from.  So if its a person fine then they are still a person, they have soul, etc.  They are no different than the rest of us.  I think for me that paired with the political feel this one just lost me a bit.   I think that if you like books about clones, boarding schools, politics, and more that this one might work out for you.  

The feeling of this one reminded me of another book called The Uglies although if memory serves that wasn't about clones the writing style and pacing reminded me of that series.  

"A fast-paced thriller about identity and love." - Publishers Weekly
"Episodic and fast-moving with plenty of twists and one very big turn that will delight mystery readers." - Booklist
"Fascinating. I was captivated." - Francine Pascal, bestselling author of Sweet Valley High and Fearless series
"A brilliantly imagined near-future world where six clones and their counterparts grapple with profound questions of identity and what it means to be human. The first book in a compulsively readable duology, Rebecca Hanover's THE SIMILARS asks us to consider the consequences of our scientific creations. Part cautionary tale, part gripping teen romance, THE SIMILARS is as immersive and fast-paced as it is shrewd, compelling and heartbreaking." - Ray Kurzweil, inventor, futurist, and New York Times bestselling author
"A page-turner that more than delivers on its premise. Hanover takes on sci-fi and high school with equal wit and understanding." - Allison Raskin, New York Times bestselling author of I Hate Everyone But You
