Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: Falls the Shadow by Stefanie Gaither
Genre: Young Adult, Scifi, Thriller
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Release Date: September 16th 2014

When Cate Benson was twelve, her sister died.

Two hours after the funeral, they picked up Violet’s replacement, and it was like nothing had ever happened. Because Cate’s parents are among those who decided to grant their children a sort of immortality—by cloning them at birth. So this new Violet has the same smile. The same laugh. That same perfect face. Thanks to advancements in mind-uploading technology, she even has all the same memories as the girl she replaced.

She also might have murdered the most popular girl in school.

Or at least, that’s what the paparazzi and crazy anti-cloning protesters want everyone to think: that clones are violent, unpredictable monsters. Cate is used to hearing all that, though. She’s used to standing up for her sister too, and she’s determined to prove her innocence now—at whatever the cost. But the deeper she digs for the truth, the further Cate's carefully-constructed life begins to unravel, unveiling a world filled with copies and lies, where nothing and no one—not even her sister— is completely what they seem.
Why am I waiting on this?

  • Sounds unique! I think this will either end up pretty freakin epic, or fairly confusing!

^ My thoughts exactly! This one definitely sounds original; I'm certainly going to have to be on the lookout for this when it hits stores! Thanks so much for sharing Haley, and, as always, great choice! :D

Often fake facial hair mounted on netting is glued hermes outlet to an actor face, but those appliances are very restricting and uncomfortable. Paul Giamatti beard was painstakingly applied one tuf replica handbagst at a time, layer after layer, using a combination of human hair and imported yak hair replica watches uk. Then it was trimmed and styled to look natural.
