The next installment of Lauren Oliver’s Replica duology now has a cover! Ringer, like it’s predecessor, has a double sided cover and can be read 3 different ways. Start with Lyra’s story, flip it over and read Gemma’s, or alternate between the two. You decide! Check out the fantastic cover!
In the world outside of the Haven Institute, Lyra and Caelum are discovering that it’s hard to be human. Lyra, infected at Haven with a terrible disease, finds her symptoms are growing worse. And neither of them knows where they belong, or who they can trust. When Caelum leaves without warning, Lyra follows him, seeking a pioneering organization in Philadelphia that might have a cure for the illness that is slowly consuming her mind. But what they uncover there is a shocking connection to their past—even as their future seems in danger of collapsing.
When Gemma learns that her controlling and powerful father has new plans for Lyra and Caelum, Gemma and her boyfriend, Pete, leave to warn their friends of the danger they face. But when an accident strands Gemma and Pete on the side of the road, they are mistaken for the escaped replicas and seized by strangers hired to capture them. Driven to a teeming facility housed in an abandoned airport, Gemma comes face to face with the hundreds of replicas who survived the explosion on Spruce Island. The Haven institute wasn’t destroyed after all, and now Gemma is the one behind the walls.
Lyra and Gemma’s stories can be read separately—with either story first—or in alternating chapters, but no matter which way you turn the book, the two distinct stories combine into one breathtaking experience for both heroines and readers alike.
Like its ambitious companion novel, Replica, this far-reaching novel by powerhouse bestselling author Lauren Oliver digs deep into questions of how to be a human being, in a world where humanity cannot be taken for granted.
