Beta by Rachel Cohn

Beta (Annex, #1)Beta by Rachel Cohn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Elysia is a Beta, that is, she is a test clone. Created to serve, the Governor’s wife bought her to act as her surrogate daughter and to please her children as their sister and playmate.

Clones are not meant to be able to feel or to want, but Elysia feels and wants more than she should. There are people who want to destroy Defects like her, so she has to keep her feelings a secret.

Inevitably, things happen that forces her secret out, and she has to run for her life.

This is the first book in the Annex series, and it’s been a really exciting read. The backstory about clones and how things came to be is smoothly woven into the story and is really quite interesting. The mystery of Elysia’s First, the person she was cloned from, is intriguing as well, and leaves us wanting to know more.

I finished the book in one sitting, and let me just warn you, this book ends with a really exciting cliff-hanger, and I’m cursing the fact that the second book isn’t out yet! I want to know what’s going on and what happens next! A great read!
