From the first chapter I couldn’t stand her, and it seriously only got worse! Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime.

But that was as far as my loving it went. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. Un cri, suivi de bruits de pas, retentit dans la salle. Just because one Alt is stronger than the other, doesn’t mean that Alt will win. The victor of this 30 day battle, becomes a chapan and can start living their life as if they didn’t just kill someone who looks and acts the same as themselves.

Why go through all this trouble, and have minors kill other minors, just so your city can be populated by strong people? Hopefully there will chapmzn better world building in the second book, better developed characters, and logic I can relate to!

Elsiw such as this left this world into a bit of an implausible slur. Once active, West will have one month to kill her Alt, a genetic twin raised by another family. This was one of many books that never actually caught my elzie during its release last year. I found her to be smart, brave, loving, and normal.


At sometime starting at the tender age of 10 these two twins become “active,” which basically means they need to start actively trying to kill each other.

When I started reading it: What caused the world to need two people that are excatly alike to fight to the death? If they don’t kill each other within 31 days, they both die.

It’s no secret dhapman I love survival type books and I’m happy to say that Dualed slides right next to my favorites. Should these issues have been addressed, Dualed could have easily been a four star read for me, but in the end, there are far too many holes in the world and the character development for me to give Dualed anything more than a disappointed two stars. Dualed is a book that I wanted as soon as I heard the summary.

Refresh and try again. Is she the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future? Don’t you think you’ll have more nightmares?

Book Review: Dualed by Elsie Chapman — @TLT16 Teen Librarian Toolbox

Push him down and he’ll only push back harder. And what was most inspiring about her was that she mostly dealt with this on her own, pushing everyone aside, even Chord, her view spoiler [dead hide spoiler ] brother’s best friend who promised to stay with her when the time came for her to kill her Alt. This is pretty much how it went My house has become a trap, a potential converging point that ninety-seven times out else a hundred is not going to end well for the Alt who comes home.

Chord was a nice character. Only one will survive.

West’s Alt is very much like and very much unlike her, meaning she’s still just a girl. To me, that just gives more incentive to fight the system, but again no! It happens pretty early on in the book, and the scenes where West is acting in this capacity are among my least favorite. And then it’s not like these idles people waiting to become Activeswhich in turn will fight to become Completes only fight when they reach at least puberty! Waiting on Wednesday Granted this is illegal and against the system, but still she’s a killer and she doesn’t seem to mind it.


I wanted to be faced with a character struggling with what she’s been dealt, a character that truly kicks-butt, a character that deals with her emotions, or at least chaapman them. For me, it was the action, philosophical elements, and strong female heroine of Dualed that put it in the same league as elsid successful predecessors.

Is she worthy enough to win? It puzzled me all the way through the book. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Why kill alts in the first place when there’s this whole infertility thing going on?
