9780060872342: Doppelganger

Doppelgangers are monsters, hardwired for murder.

They are not supposed to have doubts, but this one does. He wishes he could be different. More human, maybe. But even that can't stop him from killing people so he can take their places and live their lives. He has to do it; it's who he is.

But when the doppelganger murders a small-town teenager, assumes his shape, and takes over his life, he's shocked by the world he steps into. Engulfed in a whirlwind of peer pressure, messy family dynamics, and a provocative relationship with a beautiful girl, he quickly learns that there's more than one way to be human, and many ways to be a monster.

Told in the tortured voice of a most extraordinary teen, this contemporary gothic romance brews a captivating combination of violence, desire, and atonement. Here is the story of a monster yearning for a human life.

About the Author:

David Stahler Jr. received his bachelor's degree in English from Middlebury College in 1994 and later earned a graduate degree from the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program at Dartmouth College. His other provocative works for young adults include Truesight, The Seer, and Otherspace. He teaches in Vermont, where he lives with his wife and two children.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9-Up–What makes someone a monster–actions or instincts? In this story, a doppelganger is a shape-shifter that kills its victims, claims their identity, and takes over their lives from a month up to a year. When high school jock Chris Parker attacks a helpless old man by the tracks, he makes a fatal error. The doppelganger that takes his place is a different person. As this Chris Parker learns about the family he is living with, he begins to ask some probing questions–does being a monster mean hitting your family, ignoring abuse, or accepting it? If such behavior is instinctual, does that make it acceptable? As the teen embraces his current form and falls for the deceased Chris's girlfriend, he chooses to do something about the monsters around him. Can love make a difference in life–even if you are a monster? Does everyone deserve a second chance? This is a compelling horror story about making choices and the difference that certain decisions can make in life.–June H. Keuhn, Corning East High School, NY
