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.
