Two of you exist. 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
The storyline was pretty much boring. Not much character nor plot development. I was expecting the heroine to question the reason of such a system (killing your genetically-created twin) but she did not. She just went ahead with the flow and tried to kill her twin. And on the way, she decided to be an assassin because it would help with her skills and reflexes. They were supposed to be an underground society, and the assassin is marked on the wrists for identification purposes. BUT what is she doing killing people in plain-sight and having audiences? Like that wasn't going to attract the Board's attention which is going to lead back to the assassin group. A little nonsensical and weird, and for the most part emotionless and bland.
