Jack is a walking fossil.
The only human among a sea of clones. It’s been hundreds of years since humanity died off in the slow plague, leaving the clones behind to carry on human existence.
Over time they’ve perfected their genes, moving further away from the imperfections of humanity.
But if they really are perfect, why did they create Jack?
While Jack longs for acceptance, Althea-310 struggles with the feeling that she’s different from her sisters. Her fascination with Jack doesn’t help.
As Althea and Jack’s connection grows stronger, so does the threat to their lives. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?
Did you love The Giver? Are you a fan of Margaret Atwood? This book gave me all the Atwood vibes and completely brought me back to The Giver. Your One & Only is completely unique and captivating. When you read a book in less than 24h you automatically know it’s special. This science fiction story was just SO GOOD. I keep trying to put to words how amazing it is and feel as though I am rambling… oh well, rambling it is haha!
Your One & Only was so addicting I could not put it down! The writing was beautiful and alluring. The characters had so much depth to them it was truly amazing to watch them develop throughout the story. The plot was so perfectly constructed that I kept getting chills throughout the book. I am amazed this is YA because personally, I would shelve this under adult science fiction. It was so intense and did not read like YA at all.
If you want to read something truly unique, captivating and chilling you should pick up Your One & Only! FABULOUS debut!!
