Publisher Comments:

A riveting new story from Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived.

17-year-olds Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up as identical triplets... until they discovered a shocking family secret. They're actually closer than sisters, they're clones. Hiding from a government agency that would expose them, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, attending social engagements, and a group mindset has always been a de facto part of life...

Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, a guy who seems to see into her very soul. As their relationship develops, Lizzie realizes that she's not a carbon copy of her sisters; she's an individual with unique dreams and desires, and digging deeper into her background, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created.

Review:

"Patrick (Revived) is making a niche for herself with high-concept romantic thrillers about girls whose realities are far from the norm, and her third novel may be her best yet. Lizzie is a clone, one of three 16-year-old 'sisters,' raised under the strict supervision of their scientist mother. Everyone outside the house thinks Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey are the same person, Elizabeth Best, since their mother has the girls living in shifts: Ella goes to school in the morning, Lizzie takes the midday shift, and Betsy gets evenings. The girls are growing increasingly resistant to this arrangement, especially after Lizzie and Ella fall for two different boys at school. Having three girls masquerade as one certainly sets the stage for conflict, but it's the strong bond between the three girls as they begin to assert themselves, as well as Lizzie's tantalizing and clandestine new relationship with classmate Sean Kelly, that will keep readers riveted. Patrick doesn't dwell on the science behind the story, but instead uses cloning as a vehicle to explore themes of identity, sisterhood, and family. Ages 12 — up. Agent: Daniel Lazar, Writers House."

Synopsis:

Three Girls. One Life.

Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up believing they were identical triplets. Then they learned the truth — and no one else can know.

Now, to the outside world, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one seventeen-year-old daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, pursuing extracurriculars, and even dating.

Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, the one person who can help her realize she's not a carbon copy of the others — she's an individual with unique dreams and desires. Digging deeper into her background and her mother's role in her life, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created.
