Replica 14: The Beginning Book Review

Replica 14: The Beginning Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Have you got a brother or a sister? Amy has 12 and if thats not enough Amy and her sisters are kinda special. Just how special? Amys going back to the beginning to find out.

Author: Marilyn Kaye

Amy is a 12-year old girl living with her single mom and trying to lead a normal life. But Amy is a very special girl. She's faster, smarter and stronger than all her friends and that hasn't made it easy to fit in.


The Field Trip

A school field trip to Washington DC sends Amy and her mom back to where it all began. (Amy and her sisters were 'born' in Washington.) Neither Amy or her mom know what to expect and their journey leads them down memory lane, full of long-lost friends, mysterious government cover-ups and dangerous strangers.


Uncovered Memories

Amy's mom has to deal with some strange stuff too. Hooking up with a few of her old friends, brings up difficult memories. She uncovers info about them... stuff she never suspected. Most of the story is about her remembering what happened when Amy was just a baby. Creepy stuff at that.


The Bottom Line

The Beginning is a good read if you're a fan of the series and you wanna know about Amy's mom and her past. It's great for the historical dirt in the series but not much in the way of action. Pick up a couple of earlier Replica books before you read this one, it'll make more sense.

    Would You Clone Yourself If You Could?

    • Oh yeah! Send in the clones whenever I'm in trouble.
    • Nah, I'm an original, no copies required.

    On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.

    Definitely not. A person can learn to control their heartbeat and lying skills, so the tests are most definitely NOT a accurate.

    Kirsteeeeen said I should post this so yeaOk so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now

    EDIT:  With the events in North Korea, I think it's likely that some sort of military conflict will occur in the near future. But it wouldn't be a "World War". North Korea has two "allies" on the planet, that being China and Russia. China's President has signaled a withdrawal of support from North Korea, and Russia so far has been silent on what's been happening.  Basically, if there is a war, it will likely be The World vs Kim Jong Un.
