Weekend Book Give-Away: The Originals

This week's give-away comes just in time for a special author event!

Next Friday, Cat Patrick will launch her brand new book The Originals at Secret Garden Books in Seattle. From the author of Forgotten and Revived, this will be a book event you don't want to miss!

"Seventeen-year-olds Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best,  grew up as identical triplets... until they discovered a shocking family secret. They're closer than sisters, they're clones. Hiding from those who would expose them, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, attending social engagements, and a group mindset has always been a de facto part of life.
Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, a guy who seems to see into her very soul. As their relationship develops, Lizzie realizes that she's not a carbon copy of her sisters; she's an individual with unique dreams and desires. Digging deeper into her background, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created."  - from the publisher
May 10, 2013 7:00 – 9:00 PM
2214 NW Market Street Seattle, WA 98107
"The message of Cat’s book is that everyone is unique, and she feels the same way about book launches. Attendees will be treated to clone-worthy food and beverages like DNA cupcakes and test tube punch, then a (humorous) dramatic reading featuring Cat and her You Are Next tour mates, Sean Beaudoin (The Infects), Martha Brockenbrough (Devine Intervention), and Kevin Emerson (The Lost Code), during which time it is possible that boys will read—and dress—as girls. There will be a photo-cloning station for participants and their look-alikes. 
Cat or her dopplegangers will be happy to sign copies of The Originals and answer questions about her career, her books, and the crazy weird science she likes to make up for fun."  

Unfortunately Sno-Isle Libraries isn't in the habit of cloning books... yet... only one copy to give away this week! So if you're the lucky winner, bring your free copy to the book launch and get it signed by the author. And if you're not the winner, that's okay! Enjoy a night with the author and bring your clone-worthy friends.
To enter for a chance to win this Advance Reading Copy, tell me who you would clone if you had the chance, and why. 
Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Tuesday May 7, 2013. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.

If i could clone someone it would probably be like Hilary Clinton because of all her accomplishments so i could be just like her.

If I could clone anyone, it would be my best friend Erin because I moved away from her. Then I could have her right next door!!! :D

If I could clone someone, I would want to clone myself. Then, I could skip school to sleep, read and do whatever I want while my clone went to school and socialized, got homework, etc.

If I HAD to clone someone it would be myself but I do think cloning has both it's highs and lows. So I would clone myself so I would not be putting something on someone else.

I would clone myself so that way I could have a twin, kind of. If I ever felt I needed a day off I could just have my clone go and do things for me. Also I would have a girl who is the same size as me who could go clothes shopping for me since I hate shopping!
