Lyra's story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that from a distance looks serene and even beautiful. But up close the locked doors, military guards, and biohazard suits tell a different story. In truth, Haven is a clandestine research facility where thousands of replicas, or human models, are born, raised, and observed. When a surprise attack is launched on Haven, two of its young experimental subjects--Lyra, or 24, and the boy known only as 72--manage to escape. Gemma has been in and out of hospitals for as long as she can remember. A lonely teen, her life is circumscribed by home, school, and her best friend, April. But after she is nearly abducted by a stranger claiming to know her, Gemma starts to investigate her family's past and discovers her father's mysterious connection to the secretive Haven research facility. Hungry for answers, she travels to Florida, only to stumble upon two replicas and a completely new set of questions.

The way this novel was written was amazing! Reading from one characters perspective first and seeing what goes on for them and then reading from another characters perspective and what happened to them. The way the story entwines with the other was fantastic.

From Lyras point of view, Gemma’s character came across as headstrong where when you read from Gemma’s perspective she was extremely scared and confused the whole time.

The information found out from both sides of the story was amazing! You could kind of guess what would be the case but when all was revealed you were still blown away.
