A question of individuality, humanity and love, Lauren Oliver, author of Delirium, has spun another tale from within the uncertain mind. She bestows upon us a simple journal of two girls stumbling about to define themselves, whilst systematically peeling away at a new perspective on consciousness.
Replica is based on the products of human cloning in a remote lab, the Haven Institute, whereby ethical lines are blurred in the name of progress. 24(or Lyra as she prefers to be called) has spent her entire life invisible to those who created her. Daily prodding and probing have convinced her that’s what life is, a scientific bubble, her god only a mere man. But when on a secretive excursion to hide her books away from the lab leads to her discovery of a runaway’s camp and an attack on the Institute, Lyra is forced to take her first step into the world and face the all encompassing question; Am I human?
On the other face of the coin is a surbuban teenage girl, Gemma, whose normal life is tipped to uncertainty after a shocking discovery of her true origins.
She too must find an answer to her identity, and learn the true value of human consciousness.
A wonderfully crafted book, Replica is a great summer read.
