Waiting on Wednesday (18)

Waiting on Wednesday/s are hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine in which you choose a book or books that you're excited and waiting for.
This week's Waiting on Wednesday book is:
Title: Dualed (Dualed #1)
Author: Elsie Chapman
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Publication date: February 26th 2013
Pre-order the book: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

You or your Alt? Only one will survive.

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.

Elsie Chapman's suspenseful YA debut weaves unexpected romance into a novel full of fast-paced action and thought-provoking philosophy. When the story ends, discussions will begin about this future society where every adult is a murderer and every child knows there is another out there who just might be better.

(Summary from Goodreads)

Why I'm super excited for this book:
I absolutely love the concept of Dualed. The very idea of having a twin that you're meant to kill just gives me the shivers! It's very interesting and quite frankly, badass. I'm just dying to read Dualed! (I'm actually thinking of recommending this book to a set of twins that I know... Haha!) And also...

Good job, Elsie!!
You're welcome. ;)
