Description from Goodreads:
A computer-hacking teen. The girl who wants to save him. And a rogue mirror reflection that might be the death of them both.
In private, seventeen-year-old Brandon hacks bank accounts just for the thrill of it. In public, he looks like any other tattooed bad boy with a fast car and devil-may-care attitude. He should know: he’s worked hard to maintain that façade. With inattentive parents who move constantly from city to city, he’s learned not to get tangled up in things like friends and relationships. So he’ll just keep living like a machine, all gears and wires.
Then two things shatter his carefully-built image: Emma, the kind, stubborn girl who insists on looking beneath the surface – and the small matter of a mirror reflection that starts moving by itself. Not only does Brandon’s reflection have a mind of its own, but it seems to be grooming him for something—washing the dye from his hair, yanking out his piercings, swapping his black shirts for … pastels. Then it tells him: it thinks it can live his life better, and it’s preparing to trade places.
And when it pulls Brandon through the looking-glass, not only will he need all his ill-gotten hacking skills to escape, but he’s going to have to face some hard truths about who he’s become. Otherwise he’ll be stuck in a digital hell until he’s old and gray, and no one will even know he's gone.
Huffington Post lists N.K. Traver's Duplicity as part of one of the great YA book trends to look for in 2015!
Why I'm excited:
This sounds awesome. It's a trip through the looking-glass with action and a cyber twist. I haven't seen anything like this, so I'm definitely intrigued. From the early reviews I'm seeing that it's a great, action-packed mystery that will keep you guessing. I love books that keep me on my toes. I've been able to guess the twists in a lot of books lately, so I sure hope this one stumps and surprises me.
I also love the idea of an evil mirror image....
