Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The three Bunting sisters, of rural Shallow Pond, Pennsylvania, are orphans. Twenty-six-year-old Annie serves as mother, shelving her own dreams of college to raise her sisters. Twenty-one-year-old wild child Gracie is impulsive and erratic, always after male attention. Narrator and high-school senior Barbara is a focused sleuth intent on figuring out certain family mysteries while trying to avoid being paired up with ridiculously handsome new student Zach Faraday. What Barbara discovers is shocking indeed, for all three sisters are clones of their dead mother, and Zach is a clone of their (presumed dead) father, who is desperately trying to re-create his romance through the next generation. This cautionary tale of parents doing anything to live vicariously though their children lacks subtlety but rolls along at lightning speed with more than a few twists for a quick read. Grosso raises deep issues of identity and ethics that ultimately are more interesting than the often one-dimensional characters, but the swift pace will hold readers through a surprising ending. Grades 7-12. --Debbie Carton
