Waiting on Wednesday: Replica by Lauren Oliver

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

Replica by Lauren Oliver
Release Date: October 4, 2016

I've enjoyed all of Lauren Oliver's books that I have read so far.  She will be signing this book at BEA, so I added it to my TBR list and hope to pick up a copy next week.

Goodreads Overview:

ReplicaGemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. 'A sickly child', her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father's connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she's always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father's name seems inextricably linked to it.

Amidst the frenzy outside the institute's walls, Lyra - or number 24 as she is known as at Haven - and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven's purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever...

  4. What I like about this book is that you can read both perspectives just by flipping the book over. However, I am sort of sketchy on how close it feels to the Delirium series. I have no doubt she's a great author but the premise itself doesn't really feel "new" to me. Guess we will just have to wait and see though.
