You vs. Your Twin

Dualed is a book written by Elsie Chapman. It’s a book based on a dystopian future. The city of Kersh is a safe haven in a war-torn environment, but their safety comes at a cost. In order to reside in the city, you must be able to survive and defend it against any group that tries to attack it. When you are born, another person is born baring the same identical features of yourself. In other words, your genetic alternate or twin. To be able to lead a better life, with higher education, better jobs, permission to marry, you must be prove yourself to be the better alternate, and eliminate your twin before your twentieth birthday arrives. This is the story of West Grayer, and how she attempts to face the situation that she is in.

You might remember this book in a post that I published earlier. This is one of the books that I included when talking about newly released books. I thought that this might be a good read, and I did enjoy it. I thought it was interesting how a person might deal with the fact that they have to permanently defeat their twin. The story has includes violence and has characteristics similar to the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. However, that’s what makes it so intriguing. Dualed is Elsie Chapman’s first novel, and the sequel Divided, is coming out soon!
