Six clones. One elite boarding school. Countless deadly secrets. Don't miss this exhilarating debut that every is buzzing about from Rebecca Hanover. Junior year just got a lot more cutthroat. This fall, six new students are joining the junior class at the elite Darkwood Academy. But they aren't your regular over-achieving teens. They're clones. And they're joining the class alongside their originals. The Similars are all anyone can talk about: Who are these clones? What are the odds that all of them would be Darkwood students? And who is the madman who broke the law against cloning to create them? Emmaline Chance couldn't care less. Her best friend, Oliver, died over the summer and it's all she can do to get through each day without him. Then she comes face-to-heartbreaking-face with Levi -- Oliver's exact DNA copy and one of the Similars. Emma wants nothing to do with the Similars, except she keeps getting pulled deeper into their clique. She can't escape the dark truths about the clones or her prestigious school. No one can be trusted ... not even the boy she is falling for with Oliver's face.

Okay, I advocate you: there are better ways to spend your time than reading this book. The Similars was a letdown in various ways, from a premise not fully explored to borderline bifurcation and genetic fallacies thrown at readers throughout the novel. The stereotypes were placid and predictable, the love story was entirely boring; the main character was a sappy, shallow figure and the heavily political influence was presented in a clouded, biased fasion.

This is a fascinating concept. You go back to school for your junior year and there are six new students that are replicas of current students -- with the exception that one of the new kids looks just like your deceased best friend. I appreciated the exploration of life with clones, but the attempts to metaphorically link this to the immigration crisis did not work for me. I found the last 1/3 of the book was a bit disjointed and don't know if I would invest in further editions in this series. I just don't care enough about Emmaline and Levi after reading this first book.
