    Your One and Only by Adrianne Finlay is a great sc

    **4.5/5 stars** Your One and Only by Adrianne Finlay is a sci-fi young adult novel about the world three hundred years after humanity died off from the Slow Plague. It is 2407 and all that are left are clones, Homo Factus. Nine sets of clones from nine different types of DNA are replicated every ten years. Over the centuries, the clones have perfected their genes and are less like the Original Nine homo sapiens, the scientists that created them, that they represent. However, due to replicating the same genes over and over they are realizing the DNA is degrading and they are losing something in the process. Something they think bringing back a human, homo sapien, will help them discover. Jack is the one of the two main characters of the novel and is the only human in the community of Vispera. An outsider amongst clones, he does not fit in and does not fully understand his purpose for being there. He does not have many people on his side who want him there except for his surrogate father, Samuel-299, and eventually Althea-310. Althea-310 is a clone, one of ten, and she is different from her sisters. She is starting to feel and think independently, and it confuses her. She is supposed to be the same as her sister Altheas. However, her feelings of being different keep her on edge and only grow as she begins to feel for Jack. As these two characters begin to spend more time together, learning more about what is going on, their relationship begins to grow. A slow-burn on the romance-side, but that is fine because the main focus of the book is the mystery and danger surrounding them within the community of Vispera. Ms. Finlay's Your One and Only is a well-written novel with amazing world-building. Paced well, it is filled with details, characterization, an interesting cast of characters and plenty of mystery about the Originals and the clones. The plot and subplots were interesting especially anything that had to do with Jack. I really liked his character who was complex in contrast to some of the clones. Overall, Your One and Only by Adrianne Finlay is a great sci-fi novel that will hook you from the start as it slowly bu to an exciting ending. I happily recommend and look forward to reading more from this author. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)
