You or your Alt? Only one will survive.
The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.
Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.

The Insider's Scoop
1. Originally, DUALED was written so that people could receive their assignments to fight their Alts at anytime, not just as teens.
2. The original title was THE ASSIGNMENT.
3. Two of West’s siblings were cut pretty early on in the revision process—brothers named Dess and Silas.
4. I have a really hard time coming up with names for my characters, so even after Dess and Silas were cut, I gave their names to other characters in DUALED.
5. West also had a cat named Hachi. He stuck around for a bit longer than Dess and Silas, but he didn’t make it into the final round of edits, either.
