Imitation by Heather Hildenbrand Blog Tour Excerpt!!

Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me.

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face. 

Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has never needed Ven . . . until now.
When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?

Add to Goodreads:


After breakfast, the three of us walk together behind the others to our designated changing room. The girls in our wing have ten minutes to report downstairs for physical activity. Our days are scheduled to the second in Twig City. This way, we don’t have time to think about the fact that it’s more like a prison than a city. No one says it out loud, but the absence of an exit is proof that it’s true.
“Maybe you’ll meet a hot guy,” Lonnie says as we grab our gym uniforms from our cubbies.
“Maybe,” I echo.
None of us have ever really interacted with boys. Twig City is segregated to prevent lasting relationships of that sort. Attachment is too complicated when you could get called up for duty at any time. To develop our social skills, we are treated to a quarterly mixer, where we are made to dress up and then marched upstairs to the boys’ dormitory. For two hours, we are fed cookies and punch while static-filled music is cranked through the speakers. Once, a few couples tried dancing but as soon as their bodies made contact, the Overseers were there, pulling them apart and handing out punishment orders. No one dances anymore.
