This powerful novel explores many issues, along with the growing up of this boy/clone. The morality of cloning is a theme. The difference between being what everyone expects you’ll be- evil, or dumb, or whatever- and changing their views or living better then that is an ongoing thing too. It was very emotional, with exciting adventures, great twists and turns, and a really well-written in a fresh way type of book. This book has won many awards since it came out in 2002.
I recommend this book! It was really excellent. My friend recommended it. I give it four stars! 4****!
