Publisher Description

Discover this internationally bestselling, National Book Award–winning young adult classic about what it means to be human with an updated, reimagined cover!

Matt Alacrán wasn’t born. He was harvested.

His DNA came from El Patrón, the drug-lord ruler of the country of Opium. Most people hate and fear clones like Matt—except for El Patrón. El Patrón loves Matt as he loves himself, because Matt is himself.

As Matt struggles to understand his existence, he is threatened by a sinister cast of characters, and realizes escape is his only chance to survive. But escape from the Alacrán Estate is no guarantee of freedom.

Awesome book

I downloaded this onto to my iPad to read for a school project, and I hate reading. This is probably one of the only books I've ever liked reading. I thought reading for the first time was enjoyable, and I'm so excited for the author to release the next part of this book. I just hate it when they leave me hanging.
