Check out this sneak peek at DUALED by Elsie Chapman, on shelves FEBRUARY 26th! 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.

Elsie Chapman's suspenseful YA debut weaves unexpected romance into a novel full of fast-paced action and thought-provoking philosophy. When the story ends, discussions will begin about this future society where every adult is a murderer and every child knows there is another out there who just might be better.

Chapter 1
I’ve buried nearly everyone I love.That’s the thought that keeps crossing my mind as I sit inthe restaurant, picking at the seam along my sleeve where it’sstarting to wear thin. Beneath the overly bright lighting, thecheap black cotton of the jacket I usually wear to funerals isfaded, gray, nubby with use. Across the table from me, Luc’s staring blankly at the menu.His blacks aren’t looking too hot, either. The jacket is too smallacross the shoulders, stretched tight, his wrists popping outfrom beneath the cuffs. At seventeen, my brother’s taller than Aave was. By default I’m the tallest girl, since Ehm’s gone, too.I toss my menu down. “I guess I’m just going to get thesame thing I always do.Luc shakes his head in puzzled disgust, glances up at me.“Why do we keep coming here, again? The food sucks.“I think Aave kept making us come back? He always saidBalthazar’s was one of his favorite restaurants in the Grid. And we just kind of . . . never stopped.
