Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey share everything-including a genetic identity.

Seventeen-year old Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up as identical triplets…until they discover a shocking family secret. They’re actually closer than sisters. They’re clones. Hiding from those that could 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 and attending social engagements, and a group mind-set has always been a de facto part of life. Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, a guy who seems 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. Digging deeper into her background, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created.

-Book Jacket

Action: There was not really any action in this book. There were some arguments, but nothing major.

Romance: There is romance, not too much, but not to little.

My Opinion: I thought this was a good book. It did not end the way I thought it would, I thought there was going to be a more dramatic problem. Before I even started reading the book I was a little confused about how they were clones, and how they lived as one person, but when I started reading the book everything started to make sense.

Overall: This was a good book, and it is a quick read. It was very interesting to see how everything worked out, and how it made you think something, but then you found out the truth.
