Book Review: Another Amy (Replica #3)
I hope you’re ready to follow along with my binge of the Replica series,, because today I’m sharing my thoughts on Another Amy (Replica #3) by Marilyn Kaye.
Having loved the first two books in this series, I wasted no time before diving into the next one (especially with grad school coming up).
Will this one be as good as the others? On to the review!

Perfect Amy Candler tries hard to blend in with everyone else, but then she comes face to face with someone who looks just like her–someone who is another Amy. The two girls look identical, and Amy expects them to have identical personalities. But she’s in for a big surprise. The other Amy is determined to stand out from the crowd. She’s determined to grab the spotlight, even if it means squashing the competition. She’s determined not to have a look-alike, and she wants Amy out of the way. She’s…well…evil! Amy must stop her, if she can.

Darn, I was hoping to keep the high ratings going for this series, but this book was just a little bit disappointing overall for me.
Alright, so this time around Amy and all the other kids at her middle school are really excited because there’s a movie being filmed on campus. However, Amy is shocked to find that the starring actress looks just like her. Could this be another clone, or is the resemblance just a big coincidence?
Okay, so I think what bugged me was the plot. Amy has been on the run from this secret organization and she hasn’t run into any of her clones directly, so this was a big opportunity to do things on a grand scale. However, it kind of flopped a bit. The good vs. evil tagline on the front isn’t quite right. The clone that Amy meets named Aimee isn’t evil, just misunderstood, and I don’t think making things so black and white is a good thing.
I also felt that Amy’s clone was a bit two-dimensional. I wish she’d had more substance or at least shown other levels than to just be a brat. I will say, Amy was still fun to follow around. She wants this idea of having her clones as sisters to come to fruition and she has to learn to manage her expectations. These other Amy’s have lived very different lives than she has.
I don’t think we’ve seen the last of bratty Aimee, but hopefully she will show some depth the next time we see her. Still hoping for great things with this series!
That’s A Wrap!
Well that’s it for this book review. I hope you enjoyed it!
