SBB (ARC) Tour: Beta

Beta by Rachel Cohn
Tour Type: Road Trip (6 Bloggers)

Elysia is a Beta, an experimental clone born as a sixteen year old girl, an empty vessel with no life experience to draw from. She was replicated from another teenage girl, who had to die in order for her to be created.

Elysia's purpose is to serve the inhabitants of Demesne, an island paradise for the wealthiest people on earth. Everything about Demesne is bioengineered even the air which induces a strange, euphoric high that only the clones are immune to.

At first, Elysia's new life is idyllic and pampered. But she soon sees that Demesne's human residents, who should want for nothing, yearn. And that beneath its flawless exterior, there is an undercurrent of discontent amongst the clones. Elysia is soulless and cannot feel and should not care—so why are overpowering sensations clouding her mind?

If anyone discovers that Elysia isn't the unfeeling clone she suppose to be, she will suffer a fate too terrible to imagine. And when her one chance at happiness is ripped away from her with breathtaking cruelty, emotions she's always had but never understood are unleashed. As rage, terror, and desire threaten to overwhelm her, Elysia must find the will to survive.
