Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me. The rough fabric of my cotton nightgown chafes so I lie very still. They say my discomfort comes from being built like one accustomed to niceties. How is that fair when I myself have never experienced anything but copies of the real thing? My entire life is an imitation. I am an Imitation. I’ve been here five years. Training. Preparing. Waiting. And now I have a letter. My assignment has begun. I am a prisoner. I am not Raven Rogen. I am here to die.
This has to be one of my favorite Heather Hildenbrand books ever!! I loved it so much. The story was great, it just had a great unique concept, I loved the characters and it just totally sucked me in from the very first page. The world we are thrown into is also amazing. If you are looking for a new YA read, then I totally think you should grab a copy of Imitation.
Ven is a clone, she has been built in a lab. There are hundreds of clones living in this place where they are basically raised to die. They each have an authentic out in the real world. Whoever gets that dreaded letter from Marla is never ever seen again. They get to enter the real world and play their authentics part when there is danger. They are raised to be ready and willing to die for these purposes.
When Ven enters her assignment her world is drastically changed. Her authentic is a spoiled party girl. Her father is a major asshole. She has to play the role of this girl who people are trying to kill or her authentics father will flip her kill switch. Ven is beaten many times but its not all bad. In it she finds someone to trust and maybe a way out.
Its just simply an awesome read. I loved everything about this book, it was heartbreaking, it had a forbidden romance, it was very unique, the mystery kept me on the edge of my seat and I just couldn't put it down. I can't wait for more from this series.
