Abby Goyer hates moving to Alaska with her biologist dad. He’s preoccupied with his top-secret job, but that’s nothing new. But Abby begins to suspect there’s more going on at her dad’s job than she’d imagined when she meets a very strange guy whose name is Martyr–but looks exactly like a sleazy guy from school: Jason.
But how can she convince the authorities that the old barn near town–Jason Farm–is a cloning lab?
Replication: The Jason Experiment is a science fiction/suspense young adult novel about a girl who discovers her biologist father is covering up multiple secrets—all of which are named Jason. I love that tag line! It intrigued me since I first read it last summer. It seemed a stretch from the author’s previously published novels, The Blood of Kings trilogy (search for the title at the top of my sidebar for reviews), but I’m glad I followed the author to a new style and genre.

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher for the purpose of review, but I’d already downloaded an e-version from NetGalley to read in advance. My (very positive) opinions are mine alone.
