Giveaway: BETA

This post comes to you live from Comic-Con International (and by "live" I mean I am alive at CC — this post is prescheduled.)  

With less than 100 days until Crewel's release, I find myself casually sitting back, sipping coffee, marveling at the meaning of life while the grass grows.

HA! Who am I kidding?  I am running around trying to finish revisions, return emails, plan for trips and do all that stuff that comes with being a mom.  So like any good mom I'm going to make myself feel better about how absent I've become by giving you stuff.  Today I'm giving away BETA by Rachel Cohn, which also releases on October 16, 2012!

From Goodreads:

In a world constructed to absolute perfection, imperfection is difficult to understand—and impossible to hide. 
Elysia is a clone, created in a laboratory, born as a sixteen year old girl, an empty vessel with no life experience to draw from. She is a Beta, an experimental model of teenaged clone. She was replicated from another teenage girl, who had to die in order for Elysia 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 for perfection. Even the air there induces a strange, euphoric high that only the island's workers—soulless clones like Elysia—are immune to. 
At first, Elysia's new life on this island paradise is idyllic and pampered. But she soon sees that Demesne's human residents, the most privileged people in the world who should want for nothing, yearn. And, she comes to realize that beneath its flawless exterior, there is an undercurrent of discontent amongst Demesne's worker clones. She knows she is soulless and cannot feel and should not care—so why are overpowering sensations clouding Elysia's mind?
If anyone discovers that Elysia isn't the unfeeling clone she must pretend to be, she will suffer a fate too terrible to imagine. When Elysia's 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.

I just entered the giveaway and noticed after the fact that it was U.S. only. I'm from Canada, so my entry will have to be deleted. Sorry about that!

Shades pf Earth by Beth Revis. I've got to know how Amy and Elder's story ends!

Anna said...

Hmm...Enders by Lissa Price. I think that counts as sci-fi, seeing as there are chips in people's brains that allow them to be someone else.
