This is book number 2 in the The Similars series.

In this thrilling sequel to New York Times bestselling mystery book for teens The Similars, Emma must figure out who she really is, decide between two boys with the same face, and stop a dangerous revenge plan.

Emma is still reeling from the events of her junior year at the elite boarding school Darkwood. Not only is her best friend, Oliver, shockingly alive, but the boy she loves—his genetic copy, Levi—is still on the island where he grew up, stranded with his deranged guardian.

More importantly, she is grappling with who she really is. Emma can't accept the hard truths she learned last year and refuses to share her secrets with anyone, isolating herself from the Similars and Ollie.

But when more of the Similars' creator's plot is revealed, Emma and her friends will have to try to stop him from putting a plan into motion that could destroy everyone she loves.

Don't miss this propulsive conclusion to The Similars duology!
