Replica 20 :: Like Father, Like Son Book Review

( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Amys boyfriend, Chris, gets a big shock when his long-lost dad shows up all of a sudden. But is Chris dad up to something? Its up to Amy to find out before Chris ends up in big trouble!

Author: Marilyn Kaye

Amy Candler, the genetically engineered super clone, is trying to kick back at home and take it easy with her boyfriend, Chris. Suddenly Chris' long-lost dad shows up. Chris hasn't seen his old man in years so it's a big shock and he doesn't know how to feel about his, formerly rich, now down on his luck, father who abandoned him.


Unwilling Organ Donor

The next thing Amy knows, all kinds of rich and famous people are being reunited with their long-lost kids. It's reunion time, but there's something creepy going on. When Grace Morrison, the evil doctor behind Amy's super genes, shows up as well, Amy knows something's up. Is Amy going to be able to save her boyfriend Chris without revealing her powers? Or is Chris doomed to end up an unwilling organ donor?


The Bottom Line

Like Father, Like Son has an incredibly evil plot at work. I mean really evil, worse than anything Amy has ever had to stop. Good thing it's only a book, if your parents tried this it'd be totally freaky. Marilyn Kaye gets full points for pulling off a major creep-out just as stuff like this starts to happen in real life.

    you can be fairly certain of your orientation at about any age around thirteen, or younger, too, maybe, but i do think that you'd need a more extensive understanding of sexuality before you're actually sure? your own sexuality and of sexuality in general. i mean, there is this misconception about sga orientations being s*x-central, which isn't true, since a young kid can have crushes on the same gender without even knowing about s*x at all in the first place. still, this is the difference between having an idea of your orientation and being certain of it (even if you may not be certain for many years after adolescence, too. it's not obligatory to figure it out before 20 or something). and it's really never too young for anybody to realize and acknowledge their attraction towards the same gender, it's just a matter of, will that attraction last for long enough after that for you to come out as the respective orientation? it's not just that you, as a girl, may be attracted to girls and boys now and later may just be attracted to boys--it could go totally the other way and find that you actually are only attracted to girls, but that only depends on your specific case and i don't know the details. it's fine to experiment with these labels i guess, but it's fair to say that many people will stop taking you seriously once you come out twice, thrice or more times as different things, because you hadn't thought it through properly. not to say that a single move like this that you do at thirteen will prove to be fatal or anything, though, if you live in a community that wouldn't put you at actual danger upon coming out, that is. you don't have to even choose a label if in the end you're not really sure, there shouldn't be pressure to do so. just go with something general and you'll get the point across. also keep in mind that 'coming out' isn't just a one time thing, and it's actually a continuous thing. sexuality won't come up in every discussion and you won't just go around yelling 'i'm gay!' around the whole city or something, you'll need to tell a lot of new people about it if you choose to and it will keep coming up. you can be out at school, but not at home. you can be out with friends, but not with the whole class. etc.  coming out isn't even such an important aspect in the first place if you ask me and it's a bonus pressure if you will. coming out will eventually come naturally when you get a same-gender partner and all, anyway, if you don't want to hide it forever or anything. good luck with that choice (in case i'm not too late with this reply, in which case good luck to whoever might be reading this for their own issue).

    To be completely and utterly honest, i think it's slightly young. I wouldn't go any younger that 16. Being 13 myself, i think it's hard trying to decide and put a label on something like this. If you bisexual, great! Straight, great! What i'm saying is....We have PLENTY of time in life to decide, so don't rush it just to say "Hey, i'm bi!" Or "Hey, I'm straight!"

If its what they feel on the inside, thats never going to change with a age. 4. dont use character quotes. rlly bothers me. Use ur OWN quotes or a pic or something, not a dead character from Harry Potter k?  Oh i'm so sorry if the right to have my own views has offended you, i'm just  saying that the way i see it is that at the age of thirteen a kid is now being introduced to topics such as these and their hormones are now kicking in and they should give themselves time to grow, these are my views and i'm entitled to them, just the way you are to yours. Second of all its my signature , i'll put what i want and quote what i want from who i want, and if it bothers you that much then just be the big kid you are and ignore it, K?
