A riveting new story from Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived.

17-year-olds Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up as identical triplets... until they discovered a shocking family secret. They're actually closer than sisters, they're clones. Hiding from a government agency that would expose them, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, attending social engagements, and a group mindset has always been a de facto part of life...

Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, a guy who seems to see into her very soul. As their relationship develops, Lizzie realizes that she's not a carbon copy of her sisters; she's an individual with unique dreams and desires, and digging deeper into her background, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created.

I thought this book was really great! It wasn't crude or freakishly scary. I enjoyed every page, and I loved the characters. It was an interesting concept.

This is the third book from Cat Patrick and it is the second best one. Revived was good, Forgotten was not very good but The Originals is an interesting story. At least it had an ending that let you know what the outcome of the story was. It makes one think about cloning as triplets were cloned by their mother and she tried to hide all three from the world, posing as just one girl. But the girls rebelled and wanted to have their own identities. Interesting story line.

"This is crazy," Ella says quietly.
"Being tagged is crazy," Betsey says. "This is very sane."
