    5 stars! Surprising, fascinating, touching. I loved this book! A love story wrapped in a futuristic tale of a world where humans have brought about their own destruction, and in their attempt to save themselves they've created something new and supposedly "better." But, the story asks,...

    Hmm...I am not sure how I feel about the cover being changed from this: While I was not in love with this cover, it somehow feels more fitting with synopsis than the current cover, but whatever. I guess the deed is done. ...

    Such a great read! It is very refreshing take on clones, and nothing like I have ever read. It was just one of those books that I couldn't put down, and when I was finished with it I wanted to read it again and again. I can't wait for this book to come out so I can read it over and ove...

    What does it mean to be different? To be the only one of your kind? What does it mean to be the same? What if you were the same but you felt different? What is acceptance? Jack is the only human living among clones. Clones who see themselves as being the normal ones and Jack ...

    *I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review* 3.5/4 ?Whatever son really meant, to [him] it was painful, dazzling, and the only thing that mattered.? A simple though rich concept executed with skill and intelligence. Absolutely re...

    I received an advanced copy of this from Netgalley for an honest review This one started out slow for me and I wasn't too sure about the sci-fi elements but it ended up pulling me in. The world building and the characters were so believable and it was just so well written. I just fe...

    For 300 years, the Homo factus species have survived in a post apocalyptic world dominated by the Snow Plague. There is a new generation of Homo factus every 10 years, using 9 different sets of DNA to make 10 copies of each sibling. Althea-310 is different than her 9 sisters, by carryi...

    This story was a very unique take on clones, a utopia world set in a postapocalyptic future, and one human boy created by the clones. And I could barely put it down! It was just so different from other sci-fi books and had an element of all of my favorite genres. It had a little bi...

    Loved this book. The writing, the story, the characters. Science fiction meets romance? Yes, please. Finlay's honest look at what it means to be human when almost no one else is (hm, sounds familiar) is captivating and beautiful. ...

    This is an awesome addition to the dystopian genre. The idea of cloning has so much possibility, and Adrianne Finlay really does an amazing job of bringing out that potential. This story will draw you in and make you think about what makes us who we are! ...

    DNFed at 60%. This had several elements I wanted to like but unfortunately I found it uninteresting. From the title, I was expecting more of a romance, but it was just a bunch of bros constantly fighting each other, a few kisses without any feels, and an instance of rape that was co...

    From Page One I was drawn into the world of Vispera. I loved the dichotomy and shifting relationships between the human, Jack, and the other clones. Finlay does a superb job of building this world and how complicated it has become. The tense plotting kept me guessing until the end. A h...

    This is a great YA look at cloning and it's effects. It's set in the future in a post-human world. At first I thought Jack was a human who was the only one left after something killed everyone but the clones. But the story takes a completely different tack and backs it up with some rea...

    How foolish we were, to act as gods. You know the book is good when you don?t know how to write a review for it and when despite your reading slump and the feeling of constant, impending doom you still made time to read it. Althea-310 is one of ten Altheas of her generation (...

    This was eye opening for me. I started slow, unsure about the Sci-Fi elements, thinking it wouldn't appeal to me, it's certainly not my usual taste. It didn't take long though (just one subway ride of uninterrupted reading) and then I was hooked! The world building, the characters... I...

    With its unique and inventive storyline centering around clones and what it means to be human, Your One & Only was such an interesting, fast-paced book that simultaneously delivered a hefty dose of creepy. Several hundred years into the future after real humans died out from a ...

    Beautifully written and at times heart-wrenching, this novel explores the dark side of a seemingly utopian community of clones. I was hooked within the first chapter, and as the novel progressed I found myself equally enjoying the alternating perspectives of Jack, a human boy being...

    Got this through Bookish First. Let's see if it's any good! Well that was short and sweet and not what I was hoping =( I thought the summary of the book sounded great! You have one human and all of these clones, but I guess I'm in the unpopular opinion catagory as it didn't ...

    [I don't really like the cover. I like the heart and the DNA thingy, but the color scheme is so Christmassy, and this book is not related to Christmas at all. (There's actually another version of the cover but it's not on Goodreads?) But luckily, when I saw this book on The Fantastic F...

    Your One & Only had me intrigued from the moment I read the back of the book. It deals with a future where humanity has become extinct and in our place, clones live. Everything about it is so intricate and plausible. It took a few chapters to really draw me in though, but once it g...

    I had been looking forward to receiving an ARC for this book and it did not disappoint! Finlay constructs a fast-paced, futuristic tale that combines the social commentary of The Giver with the clinical rawness of Brave New World into its own unique vision of our future. In a world ...

    I bought it yesterday, started it this morning, and finished it this afternoon. Every world distraction was an annoyance from which I?d have to drag myself from the book. The dog needs out? Grrr. I am thirsty? Grrr. It?s beyond lunchtime? Grrr. What did you say? I was rea...

    Humanity has become extinct because of the slow plague. A few groups of clones that can't get ill have survived. There are nine of them, which means nine different faces, and they keep reproducing, so plenty of versions of the same person are walking around and they each get a number. ...

    Your One & Only by Adrianne Finlay is a young adult science fiction fantasy read that has a side of romance to it. The story is told by alternating the point of view between the two main characters in the book Althea-310, a clone, and Jack, a human created by the clones. The sto...

    4.5 stars. This book surprised me in so many ways! I had a bit of an idea about the atmosphere and story that I would experience in Your One & Only, and while it did meet those expectations, it also did so much more! From the first page, I realize that this book would be well-wr...

    Your One & Only is a beautiful and at times heartbreaking story of acceptance and of love in a world that has lost its touch with what it means to be human. The book presents a welcoming new take on clones in a science fiction world that seems living and breathing due to Adrianne F...
