I recently discovered the Replica series by Marilyn Kaye and it drew me completely in. Now I've got to find the other books in the series so I can keep up with what happens to Amy.


The topic of the book is very timely since it concerns clones, ethics in science and a clone's place in society. There's also the added intrigue of secret government agencies and mysterious agents (think X-Files).


Amy Candler thinks she is a normal twelve-year-old until her body and her abilities start to change. She finds herself becoming "perfect." Her hearing and sight improve. Her athletic ability becomes amazing and she even develops a birthmark that she never had before.


If that wasn't enough to put a girl on edge (though her friend Tasha insists that it's just "puberty"), strangers begin following her. Her mother starts to act incredibly possessive and she keeps winning contests that her mother won't let her collect a prize for.


Amy slowly pieces together her identity through some detective work and at the end of the book, has come to a truce (of sorts) with her mother.


Let me warn you now that you will become hooked on this series (there are quite a few books out now) and you will have to buy or borrow all of them before your curiousity is satisfied. They are also an easy read with concepts that younger readers will have no trouble understanding (friendship, competitiveness, parental control).

I usually don't read books from series that are really long like this book, but I really like science fiction, so I read it anyway. This book caught my interest right away. I also read it because Amy is a gymnast and I am a gymnast.

Amy all of a sudden is able to do things she has never been able to do before. She can do gymnastics tricks that she has never tried and she is also smarter. She thought she was just a normal kid, but it turns out that she is a clone made by scientists in a factory.

Overall, this book was really good for a series book. It's not as good as books by Margaret Peterson Haddix or Carline Cooney, but it is still pretty good and I couldn't put it down. One bad thing is that Amy has to quit gymnastics so that no one knows she is special.

Amy Number 7 was a pretty good book. It's about a girl named Amy who thinks she's just an ordinary girl until she develops amazing skills. She becomes crazy-smart and her athletic skills increase dramatically. Amy thinks it's just puberty, as her best friend keeps telling her, but Amy find out the horrible truth. Her mom is not really her mom and Amy is not really a person. She is, in fact, a clone. She was created in a lab and the scientists working on the clones were creating them for the benefit of science. But the people sponsoring them never told the scientists that they were create an army of super clones like Amy. Amy is just one of her clone "sisters." Amy must learn to cope with being in constant pursuit by the evil people wanting to use her powers for bad things.

This was a very interesting sci-fi book.It was really fun to read. And I read almost the whole series. But like many books the fact that Amy is in constant pursuit and is always close to death gets boring after a while. And Amy's constant paranoia is really annoying. So while it's a good book, it has it's flaws.

Wow!i cant stop reading that book once i started!it's like the curiousity drives me crazy!
12 year old,Amy Candler finds out how she's different from others,with all her special abilities and all....from her mother ,Nancy Candler who was one of the scientists involve in project cresent.She found out that she's supposed to be a perfect girl,picked out from the best of zillion of cells along with her 12 other sister(although of of the girls,Aly,was considered a 'defective and rejected 'clone.
It must be difficult for Amy though,having the power that she's not supposed to 'show-off'because of the bad guys out there,wanting to capture her.
The book was in an exciting series that will keep u hooked once u start reading .Besides the excitment,there's also the other side of Humour,friendship and romance.

This book deserves five stars. I think they way the author described the scenes was magnific! I also loved the way she described Amy's feelings and how she put Amy's story to the last line when Amy's "mother" told her about Amy's mysterious past. I won't kill the story by telling it cause I want you to find out. Amy, Number Seven is in all libraries and book stores near you, so read it!
