This week I am spotlighting Twinmaker by Sean Williams. I got this ARC at ALA this past June. Here is the description of this Nov. 5 release:
M. T. Anderson meets Cory Doctorow in this teen debut from #1 New York Times bestseller Sean Williams, who also coauthors the Troubletwisters series with Garth Nix.Beginning:
When a coded note promises improvement—the chance to change your body any way you want, making it stronger, taller, more beautiful—Clair thinks it's too good to be true, but her best friend, Libby, falls into a deadly trap.
With the help of the school freak and a mysterious stranger, Clair races against the clock and around the world to save Libby, even as every step draws her deeper into a deadly world of cover-ups and conspiracies.
Action and danger fuel this near-future tale of technology, identity, and the lengths one girl will go to save her best friend.
The lucky jump was all the rage that year. Clair had tried it once but become bored after arriving at a string of destinations that seemed anything but lucky.Friday 56:
Midway through the afternoon, Libby's caption changed from Disturb at your own risk to SiCkO, with a crocodile biting a zebra on the rump.
