Title: Twinmaker
   Author: Sean Williams
   Release Date: May 29th, 2012

     High-stakes action combines with issues of friendship and body image in this timely and thought-provoking exploration of the intersection of technology and identity.

     You can be Improved....

     In a near-future world in which technology can transport you anywhere instantly, can a coded note enable you to change your body—to become taller, stronger, more beautiful? Clair is pretty sure the offer is too good to be true. But her best friend, Libby, is determined to give it a try, longing for a new, improved version of herself.

     What starts as Libby’s dream turns into Clair’s nightmare when Libby falls foul of a deadly trap. With the help of Jesse, the school freak, and a mysterious—but powerful—stranger called Q, Clair’s attempt to protect Libby leads her to an unimagined world of conspiracies and cover-ups. Soon her own life is at risk, and Clair is chased across the world in a desperate race against time.

     Action and danger fuel Sean Williams’ tale of technology, identity, and the lengths to which one girl will go to save her best friend.

My Stance:

     Twin maker didn't make my list initially, mainly because I hadn't heard of it until I caught Crash on Tea Time. I loved the cover of the book and what Margot and Aubry said about the book. The style of the book is what kept me off first, I wasn't sure what to expect out of it and I still don't. I am confused on Clair and her friend Libby, who is the one who actually gets improved. I mean from looking at the synopsis, I can see that one of them gets improved I just wish to know which

     So this coded note that changes you, how exactly does that work? I mean it just doesn't seem possible to read a slip of paper and magically it changes some part of you. If it's not explain, it'll be a slight issue, because that in turn effects some of the underground community and why they may want to protect that secret. It also would show how dangerous they are, in a more indirect manor. but then again in a future world how dangerous can a secret world be or how secret is it. It seems silly. While I may see a bit negative to this book, I am not saying or questioning the book in a that fashion. I am curious more or so than negative to this book.
