Summary: Getting into Yale has been Kate Larson’s dream for years—and being overworked and under-rested is the price of admission. But when she opens her eyes after falling asleep on her keyboard one night, she comes face-to-face with, well, herself
Meet Kate’s computer-generated twin. Kate doesn’t know why she’s here or how to put her back where she belongs, but she’s real. And she’s the last thing Kate has time to deal with right now. Unless. . .could having a double be the answer to Kate’s prayers?
In this hilarious second novel, Cherry Cheva introduces a character who has been granted the wish of every overscheduled teen everywhere—for there to be two of her. But as everyone knows, you should be careful what you wish for...it just might come true and wear all your clothes and steal your boyfriend.
My Thoughts: This was a new concept, in a book, for me. In such a technological age, we could see something like this in our lifetime. A computer generated twin, well, who wouldn't want that? Well, Kate, in this case. Especially when the "other" twin does things you wouldn't want her to do. Reminds me a lot of my husband's favorite movie, Multiplicity, just in the teen version. But I digress.
Kate is a character that many high school girls can probably relate to. She is a typical teenager trying to balance it all: school, friends, and stressing out about it. I remember being that way myself, in high school. It is a stressful time, but it can also be a fun time. It will all pass you by, if you are not careful.
It has a good message too. Take the time to really look at yourself. Don't get so wrapped up in what the future holds, that you forget to live in the moment. High school holds many lifetime memories, so don't look too forward to the future, that you let all those memories pass you by.
