In a world where everyone is the same, one girl is the unthinkable: unique. A high-stakes fast-paced series launch from New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent.

We have brown hair. Brown eyes. Fair skin.
We are healthy and strong and smart.
But only one of us has ever had a secret.


Dahlia 16 sees her face in every crowd. She's nothing special—just one of five thousand girls created from a single genome to work for the greater good of the city.
Meeting Trigger 17 changes everything. He thinks she’s interesting. Beautiful. Unique. Which means he must be flawed. When Dahlia can't stop thinking about him—when she can't resist looking for him, even though that means breaking the rules—she realizes she's flawed, too. But if she’s flawed, then so are all her identicals. And any genome found to be flawed will be recalled.
Destroyed.
Getting caught with Trigger would seal not only Dahlia's fate, but that of all five thousand girls who share her face. But what if Trigger is right? What if Dahlia is different?
Suddenly the girl who always follows the rules is breaking them, one by one by one. . . .


Brave New Girl...

I am a fan of Rachel Vincent, so reading Brave New Girl was a no-brainer for me. Thank goodness for that, because this book was a blast. An emotionally charged blast, but a blast!

Dahlia 16 is not unique. She is one of 5,000 girls created equally, to serve the city as a grower of food. She lives her life surrounded by other girls with her own face, each one blending into the next. There are no emotions for Dahlia 16 and her family, no pride or desire, need or want. At least, there shouldn't be. But once in a while, there is one created who is considered flawed. And Dahlia is beginning to think that she might just be one of them. Especially when she meets Trigger. And suddenly, the fate of 4,999 other girls just like her, wearing her face, rests on her shoulders. Is there anything she can do for them? Or are they all doomed?

I loved everything about this story. The plot was unique and interesting, terrifying even. The pacing was perfect, and kept me in this constant, edge-of-my-seat state of anticipation. My emotions were all over the place, and I loved every second of it. Rachel Vincent has made a girl that is 1 in 5,000 stand out to me, in the best of ways. She was able to make me unbearably sad, incredibly angry, and happy and confused. She made me ship the strangest of ships, and made my jaw drop at a revelation that I actually didn't see coming. This author has written yet another book to rant and rave about!

If you haven't yet tried on of Vincent's stories, give her a shot with Brave New Girl. And if you already know and love her, keep up that trend with this one. This is a great story, and I CANNOT WAIT for the next one. Because there is no way there isn't a next one, with an ending like that!
