Description

Teva goes to school, studies for her exams, and spends time with her friends. To the rest of the world, she’s a normal teenager. But when she goes home, she’s anything but normal. Due to a genetic abnormality, Teva unwillingly clones herself every year. And lately, home has become a battleground. When boys are at stake, friends are lost, and lives are snatched away, Teva has a fight on her hands—a fight with herself. As her birthday rolls around, Teva is all too aware that time is running out. She knows that the next clone will soon seize everything she holds dear. Desperate to hang on to her life, Teva decides to find out more about her past . . . and uncovers lies that could either destroy her or set her free.

Praise For More of Me

"A profound, complex examination of how we relate to our own history."

— Booklist

"The writing throughout is excellent... Realistic fiction fans will connect to Teva and will be drawn in enough to want to read the conclusion."

— School Library Journal

"The tale serves as an allegory for mental illness while challenging social stigmas and bigotry...a relatable look at growing up, negotiating changes in one's body and personality, and learning to accept one's present self and honor one's past."

— Publishers Weekly
