The blurb reads,
Citrus Leahy is having a really bad day. First she’s late to school. Then she runs into the girl who drives her nuts because she always calls her Orange instead of her name. To cap it all off, when Citrus finally makes it to class, she sees herself already inside. Wait. What? Citrus Leahy has a doppelganger! It’s probably aliens taking over the world and her life has just turned totally upside down. Goodbye, normal. Hello, paranormal! Luckily, her crush Aedan has the exact same problem!
I was reading this book and the sequel for a Blog Tour and I was amazed!! Although this book is probably for New Adults, given that the kids in the book are around 13, I was instantly drawn into the book.
Citrus is on her way to school when she realises that there is a problem. Her doppelganger has cleanly replaced her in her life. What is going on? How is it even possible? Why would someone want to take over her life? And is she the only one?
Her questions don’t get answered but what she realises is that her crush Aedan also has a doppelganger! Who else has been replaced? If they have been replaced, where are the actual people, her friends?
Citrus spends her day planning her escape from the doppelgangers, who seem to have taken over her world, but is she real or is she a doppelganger too? What do they want from them?
This was an interesting book. The questions which I asked were those which came up while Citrus digested the weird situation she was in. I wanted to read more and more about what happens and who the doppelgangers really are. The mysteries though, did not reveal themselves in THIS installment. It made me simply jump over to the next book in the series.
This book was well written in terms of building a reader interest. For those kids who are not very much into reading. I also felt connected to Citrus. Once you get over the novelty of the name, she is a quiet, smart teenager who can think on her feet.
Having said that, because I really wanted to find out what happened next so reading this book didn’t take me too long. It is written in simple language which will draw anyone in.
My Rating: 3.5/5
