And Amy is glad they've come along - especially Eric, since she's crazy about him.
But the rugged bonding experience doesn't go exactly as she's planned.
Amy falls for a mysterious guy. Freak accidents abound. Secrets rule.

Amy's life will change, all right - change forever!
A new kid has started in the ninth grade at Amy's school. He's super-intelligent and he's only eight years old. The whole school is talking about him, and Amy's boyfriend, Eric has been assigned as the prodigy's 'big brother' in school. Amy is fascinated - she, Eric and her best friend, Tasha, should get to know this kid pretty well - maybe they could all be friends. But Adrian is rude and grouchy and very patronising. Only the best will do for him, even Amy doesn't meet his standards. But as Amy digs deeper into Adrian's background, she comes up with some disturbing information. If she doesn't act on what she knows, then a terrifying super-race plan will become reality...
Amy knows Nancy isn't her birth mother, but she has raised Amy as her own daughter. Then a woman shows up claiming to be Amy's biological mother. She's got her own explanations about Amy's special abilities and wants Amy back. With doubts about her identity, Amy begins to dig deeper into her origins. But the truth could destroy the only family she's ever known.
Amy is going back to the place where she was born--Washington, D.C. It's a class trip to take in the historic sights of the nation's capital. Sure Amy's uneasy about traveling to the home turf of the people who funded Project Crescent--the reason she's alive--and is in constant fear of being captured. But it's a chance to connect with her roots. After all, what could go wrong? Well, Amy's mother is a class chaperon, and for her the trip stirs up memories. Memories of working in the top-secret government program to develop clones. Memories of a loved one battling a rare genetic disorder. Memories of betrayal, and a decision that would forever change her life. And now the trip back to where it all began pits mother and daughter against an enemy both old and new.
Something's wrong with Tasha--she's not herself. At least that's what Amy thinks. And a best friend would know! Tasha's eyes look glazed. Her usual quick comebacks have become dull, one-word answers. It's as if Tasha is acting out some part in a horror movie. Only this isn't a movie, it's real. One by one, Amy notices other personality changes. Everyone seems possessed! And soon . . . whatever is happening to them may happen to Amy too.
It's a day like no other!
Amy's birthday is coming up. She's turning 13. Now she'll be an official teenager -- and she wants to celebrate with a real blow-out. But on the big day, Amy wakes up and is definitely not ready to party. Her appearance is somewhat unexpected. Her growing pains have taken on . . . well, unusual proportions. Her family and friends don't know what to do. Amy may be an extraordinary girl, but can she ever be just a normal teenager?
Something weird is happening to talented students at Parkside Middle School. It's as if someone -- or something -- is stealing what makes each of them special. And it starts with the jocks. The star quarterback "loses his arm." The top sprinter becomes slow as molasses. The basketball team's high scorer can't shoot into the hoop. Amy watches all this in bewilderment. Then, as others at school suffer a loss of their talents, Amy decides it's time for action. But she doesn't have a clue what she's up against. . . .
Who will survive the dangers of the island?
Palm trees swaying in the breeze. An azure sky. A sun-drenched beach. Crystal-clear water. Amy wants to believe the island is a tropical paradise-except she's not there by choice, and the company she's keeping doesn't always inspire sisterly love. The other Amys are on the island. Andy and his "brothers" are nearby. And bad people want them to do bad deeds. Amy's got to rally the rebellious clones-if they all want to end up as survivors.
A sudden storm at an end-of-summer, back-to-school party sends Amy scrambling for cover-but a bolt of lightning hits her as she runs. Next thing she knows, she wakes up in a hospital emergency room. Everything's fine. Or is it? Suddenly Amy can hear more than she'd like to. She can see things that disturb her. In fact, all her senses are on edge. At first Amy thinks it's way cool to have extrasensory abilities-until they become more like a curse than a gift. Now she just wants to shut them down for good!
Amy's secret is out! Her worst enemy, Jeanine, knows that Amy is a clone. Now Amy fears the worst. She's sure Jeanine will blab the truth to everyone--maybe even try to sell Amy's story to some sleazy tabloid. But Jeanine never gets a chance to make good on any of her threats. An accident leaves her in a coma. Rumors of foul play spread like wildfire. The number one suspect . . . Amy. @16@@16@Sure, Amy wanted to stop Jeanine's big mouth, but maybe she wasn't the only one. . . .
Amy thinks being perfect can be a real drag. Everyone expects her to behave responsibly and to use her extraordinary talents for good. But when she meets one of her clones--an unexpected Amy, Number Thirteen, who goes by the name Aly--she gets a taste of normal teen life and wants more. Aly is a reject from Project Crescent. She runs with a wild crowd whose motto is Good Times Now! She convinces Amy to hang loose and have fun. Drawn by Aly's free spirit, Amy rejects her genetic roots. But Aly's carefree ways come at a high cost. . . .
Amy is off to Paris--the City of Light! She can't wait to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, to walk along the River Seine, and to see the glass pyramids outside the Louvre museum. But there's one sight she wasn't counting on. Andy!
Amy fell for Andy last summer and was shocked to learn that he, too, was a clone. When Andy disappeared, Amy didn't know what to believe about him. Now she spots him at a café. Or thinks she does. . . . Is Andy really in Paris? Is it the same Andy? Is it one of his supposed clones? One thing's for sure: If Andy's around, danger isn't far behind. Amy couldn't trust Andy a year ago, but all she knows now is that she has to find him no matter what!
Amy never knew whom Mr. Devon worked for--the organization that's after her, or some other secret government agency. All she knew was that he seemed to be her ally. He always appeared just when she needed help or vital information. But ever since Mr. Devon's death, Amy has relied on her own smarts to survive. And she'll need them more than ever now that a new substitute teacher at school has it in for her.
Ms. Heartshorn has a reputation for being demanding. She doesn't tolerate fools or careless work. And her feedback can be . . . well, a little harsh. Amy hates her. But when she learns why Ms. Heartshorn is really at school, Amy totally flips out.
Chris Skinner, Amy's new boyfriend, comes from a broken home. He hasn't seen his father in, like, forever. And when his dad finally appears, it isn't to make up for Chris's miserable childhood. Mr. Skinner is ill -- so ill that he needs a bone marrow transplant. Chris could be the perfect match. Nothing strange in that, except . . .
What if ailing grown-ups could tap into a guaranteed reserve of healthy body parts? What if innocent kids were being harmed? What if you were bred to become an unwilling donor? Amy knows she's blessed with superhuman genes, but no way, nohow is she going to let herself, or any other kid, fall prey to freakish science-fiction experiments!
Read the exclusive tell-all about human clones in our midst!
Amy knows better than to believe a tabloid newspaper's far-fetched headlines. But when one of these rags begins a series of reports on the existence of human clones and their desire to create a master race, Amy takes notice. This is definitely not just another sensational story-even if others think so. But what is truth and what is fiction?
It's a case of mistaken identity. It's a case of misplaced loyalties. It's a case of multiple betrayals. And Amy quickly finds herself in the middle of a bitter and ugly struggle for dominance.
The chilling FINALE of the Replica series!
Something is happening to Amy. It begins with the fading of the crescent moon mark on her shoulder. And as reports trickle in from sister clones who are encountering their share of sudden physical problems, Amy realizes that none of this bodes well.
How can the Amys be developing genetic abnormalities? How can they be losing their extraordinary powers? How can the deterioration be stopped? Amy is stumped by the questions racing through her head. For so long, she has wanted to be "normal"-but that was before she risked losing everything that makes her special. . .
Twelve-year-old Amy Candler is perfect in every way. She has superhuman powers: Amy can perform like an Olympic gymnast, she knows the answer to every question in her classes, and she can see and hear things from a distance out of range for a normal person.
But the one thing Amy cannot do is remember anything about her past. All she knows is that she keeps having a recurring nightmare that seems almost too real. She has a birthmark she is certain wasn't there yesterday, a strange man is taking pictures of her, and she keeps getting anonymous warnings to keep her talents to herself. Amy is in a race against time to piece together her identity before it is too late!
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.
Amy Candler is trying to keep her special talents a secret, but when that means missing out on the trip of a lifetime, even Amy can't resist. Amy can't believe she is in New York, exploring the city and staying in a plush hotel, but before she knows it, Amy is headed straight for danger.
Amy fears the organization is monitoring her every move. That's what Andy tells her -- before he disappears. He says they've both been implanted with a chip. Is there anywhere Amy can hide?
The answer seems to lie in a computer game. A game into which Amy downloads her consciousness. A game in which fantastic creatures and terrifying dangers lurk at every turn. A game that Amy suspects is being played in real life . . . by someone with sinister intentions. Amy must get to the end of the game -- ahead of whoever's trying to finish her off.
No one can identify the cause of the mysterious disease. There's evidence that the bacteria infected human genes as much as a million years ago. Back in the prehistoric age. Back when dinosaurs roamed the land. Back when cavepeople communicated in grunts and gestures. And the bacteria has been dormant--until now.
Amy's refined genes make her immune to this terrible plague. But when someone close to her shows symptoms of the disease, Amy will do anything to help find a cure. The only way: traveling back to the time when it all began . . .
