Waiting on Wednesday (183)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Replica by Lauren Oliver (10/4/16):

Description on Goodreads:
Gemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. 'A sickly child', her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father's connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she's always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father's name seems inextricably linked to it.

Amidst the frenzy outside the institute's walls, Lyra - or number 24 as she is known as at Haven - and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven's purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever...

REPLICA envisions a world much like our own in which a small set of human clones are being used by the military to test the effects of neurotoxicity in the search for a potential universal vaccine.
Why I’m Waiting:
This sounds awesome! Also, it kind of seems like two books. I get two new books by Lauren Oliver? Sign me up now please. I’m a big Lauren Oliver fan and it’s been a while she she’s written a good YA dispense. I’m so beyond ready for this one. Also, each of the main characters has a name of an all time favorite YA character of mine. So, so cool and maybe intentional.
What are you waiting on this week?
