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 that's not enough Amy and her sisters are kinda special. Just how special? Amy's 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.

    I think that there have become to many ways of identifying as a gender. Personally if we could the less amount of terms that people have to memorize the better. Yes you might identify as more than one gender but after like the 15 term it just becomes too confusing. It's unfortunate that I have to say this but I get confused between one term and another even though they might be very similar I am totally supportive as identifying otherwise but it has become a little too much for the average person to comprehend

You know, 'cause they're on me for most of the time, they barely feel like they're there (unless they're sliding down or I run into something and hit them, I don't feel them. They're, like, a part of me now). that happens to me sometimes too!

    "Well... Maybe... your related to this 'Ink' in some way?" Now that I thought about it, Paperjam did look a little like Ink... But that one faded memory was hardly something to go on. ​(("I-I like baking... We could make cupcakes or something..." Paps always filled his house with sweets, and the local school's bake sale could've run alone on his donations.))
