Emily's Waiting on:

Title: The Similars
Author: Rebecca Hanover
Genre: YA SciFi
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire 
Publication Date: Jan. 1st, 2019

Summary: 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.
I received an advanced copy of this book at BookExpo and am so excited to start it. SciFi is another one of my favorite genres when it come to YA and this is exactly that. Clones? Yes please. The mystery behind this novel has me knowing it'll be a page turner. From just reading the summary, I already have so many questions. This will totally be a beach read this summer so be one the lookout for a review!
