9780062082312: The Lost Girl

Eva's life is not her own. She is a creation, an abomination – an echo. Made by the Weavers as a copy of someone else, she is expected to replace a girl named Amarra, her 'other', if she ever died. Eva studies what Amarra does, what she eats, what it's like to kiss her boyfriend, Ray. So when Amarra is killed in a car crash, Eva should be ready.

But fifteen years of studying never prepared her for this.

Now she must abandon everything she's ever known – the guardians who raised her, the boy she's forbidden to love – to move to India and convince the world that Amarra is still alive . . .

Review:

"The most honest portrait of grief and loss that I've read in a long time. Filled with heartache, love and things that would stir Mary Shelley's ghost, this is not a story to be missed." (Lauren DeStefano, bestselling author of the Chemical Garden trilogy)

"A provocative and page-turning thriller/romance that gets at the heart of what it means to be human" ( Kirkus Reviews)

" The Lost Girl is a lovely, lovely book. The writing is truly lyrical, full of thoughts and feelings and love and pain. Eva is more than an engaging character; she's a living, breathing girl of worth . . . I loved the beautiful, evocative writing style and I loved every character in this book. I also loved the feelings and themes behind it - a reverence for life, an appreciation of beauty and freedom, a deep understanding of the importance of love." ( thebookbag.co.uk)

" The Lost Girl just filled me with a jumble of overpowering emotions, all of which touched my heart deeply. It's so beautiful. An overwhelmingly creative story. One that urges people to think, think very hard, and evaluate the value of a human life and how to live it. Debut author Sangu Mandanna has written an emotional, unforgettable tale of one's girl's struggle to just live as herself, to have an identity to call her own and feel how it is to be human, to love and be loved. Sangu Mandanna, you are brilliant!" ( AmaterasuReads.blogspot)

"This is a fantastic debut, one I couldn’t put down and that raises some truly interesting question about the nature of the soul, ethics and the truth about being ‘human’. I cannot wait to see what Mandanna writes next . . . this was one of the most compelling YA books of this type that I have read to date" ( ChooseYA.com)

She was made by the Weavers as a copy of someone else, expected to replace a girl named Amarra, her "other," if she ever died. Eva spends every day studying that girl from far away, learning what Amarra does, what she eats, what it's like to kiss her boyfriend, Ray. So when Amarra is killed in a car crash, Eva should be ready.But sixteen years of studying never prepared her for this.Now she must abandon everything and everyone she's ever known--the guardians who raised her, the boy she's forbidden to love--to move to India and convince the world that Amarra is still alive.What Eva finds is a grief-stricken family; parents unsure how to handle this echo they thought they wanted; and Ray, who knew every detail, every contour of Amarra. And when Eva is unexpectedly dealt a fatal blow that will change her existence forever, she is forced to choose: Stay and live out her years as a copy or leave and risk it all for the freedom to be an original. To be Eva. From debut novelist Sangu Mandanna comes the dazzling story of a girl who was always told what she had to be--until she found the strength to decide for herself.
