When I started reading this book, I was expecting something very different than this. When I think of anything with the word "clone" in it, I immediately come to the conclusion of something more in the way of robotic than something so completely human, which is what you find in this book. The world has been destroyed and completely back-peddled in this Lord of the Flies type book. Kids are in charge of pretty much everything. Why? Because once you reach a certain age The Sick takes you and you either die or you come out trying to eat everything around you, sort of like a zombie. But there are different types of these man-eaters on the loose where Clone 3 finds herself. Frankly, this is not a world I could ever even envision having to live in. It's hard and the children are just accepting of the fact because it is all that they know. They beat and kill each other mercilessly and live in groups like gangs with a leader.
Clone 3 has some sort of strange mission and she remembers nothing about how she ended up where she did or what the mission is beyond some glimpses in her memories that she keeps getting sporadically. The world she remembers is far different than this one. What she does know is that she needs to find the other two clones out there. Her journey is a difficult and dangerous one. Kids want to use her for her strange abilities and most are not nice at all, which she finds out the hard way more than once. But she does find some friends along the way and in this book her journey is just beginning.
I would give this one a 5 out of 5 stars!!
She must risk everything. She must remember. She must survive.
Clone Three wakes in a decaying city she is sure doesn't match the one she came from. If only she could remember. She has a purpose at least--she must find her fellow clones and the statue whose image is embedded in her mind. But she is lost, surrounded by a dead and crumbling metropolis, fought over by the survivors of an illness that has ravaged humankind.
She must risk everything, including the safety of those who try to help her, in order to fulfill her task.
But is she this crumbling world's salvation... or the source of its downfall?
