Falls of the Shadow
by Stefanie Gaither
Releases |September 16th 2014 by Simon and Schuster BFYR|
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.
In a pulse pounding debut, Stefanie Gaither takes readers on a nail-biting ride through a future that looks frighteningly similar to our own time and asks: how far are you willing to go to keep your family together

Why I'm Waiting...
This sounds pretty good to me and the synopsis now has me intrigued and curious. I've only just found out about this one over the weekend and now I'm excited to check it out. 


  1. This one has me intrigued. It sounds a little bit like The Lost Girl where a girl had to replace her dead look alike and had to study to be just like her so no one would even know the real girl was gone. Freaky!

    My WOW

  2. I'm really interested in the clone aspect. There's going to be so many moral dilemmas and things to read about. And a potential murder mystery! We can't forget that awesome cover either

    Here's what I'm desperately waiting on this week

  11. This is new to me. I can't decide if I love the cover or if it's just creeping me out a bit... I guess it could be a little of both. This sounds like it could be good.
