A Book Review of Replication by Jill Williamson

Buy from Amazon!
What if everything you knew was a lie? Martyr---otherwise known as Jason 3:3---is one of hundreds of clones kept in a remote facility called Jason Farms. Told that he has been created to save humanity, Martyr has just one wish before he is scheduled to 'expire' in less than a month. To see the sky. Abby Goyer may have just moved to Alaska, but she has a feeling something strange is going on at the farm where her father works. But even this smart, confident girl could never have imagined what lies beneath a simple barn. Or what would happen when a mysterious boy shows up at her door, asking about the stars. As the reality of the Jason Experiment comes to light, Martyr is caught between two futures---the one for which he was produced and the one Abby believes God created him to have. Time is running out, and Martyr must decide if a life with Abby is worth leaving everything he's ever known.

Genre: YA Science Fiction
Publisher: Zonderkidz (January 3, 2012)
Page Count: 304

What I liked: This was a neat and creative book. I enjoyed the Alaskan setting since its not shown much in books or other media. The characters were neat and developed and I especially enjoyed one of the main characters, Martyr. He was really cute. The book also carries a good message about sacrifice. It was very intense near the end. I enjoyed the writing style. It had several twists I did not expect coming. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys science-fiction with some teen romance laced in. :)

What I didn't like: I didn't like that this was a just a single book. I wish there was more. I would have preferred a little more fighting action, but that's my personal preference.

Content Cautions: There was nothing too severe I can think of.

Overall it was good read with a good message. :) I give it four stars.
