Teens will be on the edge of their seats reading this story about a girl who enrolls in an experimental clone study.

Half Life is smart, fascinating, and utterly compelling. Lillian Clark slips just-out-of-reach tech into real-world suburban America, and as the stakes get higher, it's chilling to see what comes from an ambitious girl's desire to be perfect and to have it all. There's a bit of a Frankenstein theme in the novel but with a serious twist—creepy but also packing an emotional punch. I dare you not to devour it in one sitting.

Update 1: I read read an early version of this contemporary sci-fi, and Lillian Clark is a master storyteller genius. The world-building here is *mwah.* ADD IT TO YOUR TBR LIST IMMEDIATELY.
