Book Description

Oct. 13 1998 Replica (Book 2)
Now that she's discovered the secret about her past, Amy Candler is trying to deal with the reality of who she is. Having an overprotective mother doesn't help. So Amy is thrilled when her mom is swept off her feet by a handsome man. But appearances can be deceiving. Amy starts getting bad vibes about her mother's inquisitive boyfriend. She starts fighting with Tasha, her best friend, who dismisses her worries. She starts meeting with the elusive Dr. Jaleski, who may be able to help her--but only by putting his own life in danger. She starts searching for other "perfect" girls just like her. This time it's up to Amy to protect herself--and those she loves--before it's too late.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-8-Amy Candler looks like any other 12-year-old girl, but her abilities are nothing short of extraordinary. Not only can she solve advanced math problems, but she can also sink a basketball through the net every time and land a triple toe loop on the ice rink. Amy is a clone, created in a lab, and only she and her adopted mother know the truth. The girl struggles to hide her background and talents because she believes there are evil individuals looking for her who want to create "a master race of superior people." Despite this, Amy lives like most other girls her age, hanging out with her best friend, becoming interested in boys, and watching movies. However, she has a hard time keeping her identity a secret and begins to wonder whom she can trust. This fast-paced mystery will keep even the most reluctant reader on edge. Amy and her friends talk and behave like real kids and it's nice to see a believable and warm mother-daughter relationship.

From Booklist

Gr. 6^-8. If you're looking for books guaranteed to hook hard-core nonreaders, just booktalk the first two titles in Kaye's irresistible Replica series and stand back. Kaye escalates the tension to fever pitch in Pursuing Amy, and readers will be lining up to reserve book three as soon as it's available. Amy's friend Tasha blames Amy's sudden moodiness on puberty. What she doesn't know is that puberty has caused radical changes in 12-year-old Amy, the seventh of 12 female clones produced in an ill-fated genetic engineering project. Almost overnight, Amy's intellectual, physical, and athletic capabilities have reached superhuman levels, and now Amy is being pursued by the treacherous organization that funded the cloning project. As Amy struggles to keep her secret, avoid capture, and learn more about herself and the other Amys, she risks her friendships and has repeated encounters with members of the organization who will murder anyone who stands in their way. A very good series that will also appeal to older reluctant readers. Chris Sherman

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series!! Aug. 5 2002
Format:Paperback
I couldn't wait to read this after I read the first book in this series, "Amy, Number Seven" and I was no disappointed! This series is about a twelve-year-old girl named Amy who finds out that her mother isn't really her mother and that she is a clone that was genetically enginered in a laboratoy. A must read for anyone who read the first one or for anyone looking for a great book, but you have to read the first book first! I highly recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars :) Aug. 29 2001
By Marisa
Format:Paperback
--Amy has a big decision to make as her best friend Tasha knows something is wrong with her. Amy has recently discovered that she is one of thirteen clones made by a project which was prematurely terminated due to the funding orginization's evil determinations. This news has somewhat shocked her so Amy has to decide whether to tell her best friend her big secret. If she does, Amy has to risk Tasha possibly telling the orginization, which is still looking for her, her identity. --Though not as good as the first book, this is one of the better books in the Replica series. --Marisa

5.0 out of 5 stars THE EXCITEMENT CONTINUES . . . July 14 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Nice job, Kaye! I was having my doubts that you'd be able to follow up a great book like AMY, NUMBER SEVEN, but you proved me wrong. This one was just as cool. Nancy's boyfriend would have had me totally fooled if it wasn't for the memo on the back cover. He seemed so nice, but I guess the old saying, 'you can't judje a book by its cover' is right in your series. I'm looking forward to the next one, so keep 'em coming!

The organization is out for Amy again! They still haven't given up on making a "master race"! Amy just found out what she really is; a clone! She tries not to tell her best friend or boyfriend what she knows about herself because it could put everyone in danger! She succedes until Amy and Eric are chased! Amy has to tell Eric the truth! Tasha, her best friend, is dissapointed that Amy told Eric, Tasha's brother, first! Will their friendship end? To top it all off, Amy's mother has a new boyfriend. What is he up to? Is he as good as he seems? You'll need to read this book to find out! It's great!
