Six clones are coming to Darkwood High. And one of them looks just like Emmaline’s dead best friend, Oliver. When Emma’s best friend is attacked, questions arise about the Similars and their trustworthiness. Can anyone be trusted? And how can Emma find out who the real culprit is when she’s falling for the boy who has Oliver’s face?
The Similars was an enjoyable book. The protagonist was not too cliche or annoying, the book was written well, and the characters were fleshed out nicely. I liked how the author spent time developing Levi (Oliver’s clone) and Emma’s relationship. I also found the political discussions on cloning very entertaining. On top of that, the plot twist at the end was remarkable.
Although the author’s world building leaves more to be desired, and the antagonist was a bit of a letdown (he was too childish for my liking), The Similars was a satisfying read. I would recommend this book to young-adult readers interested in science fiction.
