Waiting on Wednesday: The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna.
Publication Date: August 28th 2012

The Lost Girl - Balzer + Bray
Eva’s life is not her own. She is a creation, an abomination—an echo. Made by the Weavers as a copy of someone else, she is expected to replace a girl named Amarra, her “other”, if she ever died. Eva studies what Amarra does, what she eats, what it’s like to kiss her boyfriend, Ray. So when Amarra is killed in a car crash, Eva should be ready.

But fifteen years of studying never prepared her for this.

Now she must abandon everything she’s ever known—the guardians who raised her, the boy she’s forbidden to love—to move to India and convince the world that Amarra is still alive.
Synopsis by goodreads.com

Why we are waiting: This book posts a couple of questions that are really intriguing. First off, in what society does a person have a "backup"(because that's how I would call Eva), if something happens to them? Moreover, what important role does Amarra play that she needs Eva as her replacement? And what is Eva? A human, or something else entirely? I'm quite sure the answers will be very different from what we imagine. Also I'm extremely curious on how Eva will handle her task of replacing someone she doesn't even know personally! Oh, and don't get me started on the forbidden love thing. I'm a sucker for forbidden love!

So, what do you think? A title for your TBR? What are you waiting on this week?
