The Lost Girl is a moving story about a girl finding her own identity, because she's just a copy of another person - another person who hates her...I would thoroughly recommend The Lost Girl, because it is a book that will stay with you forever.

Synopsis

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.
