I came across this book whilst browsing Netgalley back in the summer. The title and cover caught my attention, it wouldn't be the most outstanding cover I have seen on a book but I found it unusual and intriguing. Reading the synopsis intrigued me more, so I requested it and was lucky enough to get accepted.

A fast paced story. Filled with the incessant, random ramblings inside the main characters head. I persisted with the book as in between Citrus rambling away to herself there were some interesting parts of the story... Or so I kept wishing for. I don't see this as being a young adult book. The writing style is very simple, the romance is innocent and the violence is non existent. It was a quick, easy read, but unfortunately didn't live up to the expectations I had hoped for.

Each to their own, everyone has different likes and dislikes, you never know if you will like it until you try it. I shall leave that decision in your hands.

Congratulations to Milda Harris, may you have many future successes!

OMG it was a major cliff-hanger NOOooo!!

Citrus and Aedan found themselves in a very unusual position when they turned up at school one morning to find themselves, or rather their doubles, already in their class. The pair soon realise that something strange is happening in their town and their class mates are being kidnapped and replaced by doppelgangers. How they avoided being taken they don't know but the race is on to find their friends before something awful happens to them.

This book had me turning the pages from start to finish, I was so curious as to what was happening and where these doppelgangers came from. I haven't come across a storyline quite like this one before and found the whole thing totally unpredictable. Some of the scenes did drag on and feel a little irrelevant to the story slowing the pace in parts but the `need to know' kept me hooked. One major twist had me really shocked, I did NOT see it coming!

When I was up to 90% (I read the kindle version) and we were at a fairly crucial point in the plot I was devastated to find the book ended and the last 10% was an excerpt from a totally different book.....How can you do this to me??? Book 2 is coming soon........but when is soon?? I need to know...NOW!!!

Overall this was a very interesting read, it had humour, adventure, suspense and intrigue. It is a comfortable read with a natural voice and I enjoyed it.

Copy supplied for review.

This was a fun, lightweight read and, I'll hold my hands up, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Citrus (Orange!) is an interesting character and I liked her immediately - but I have to say I preferred Doppel-Aedan to real life Aedan (arrogant pig anyone?).

Definitely worth reading and I will make a point of reading the next book in the series when it comes out! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Talking to a 13-year-old with ADHD 4 July 2014
By Sally Balboa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For more book reviews go to: greenash5.wix.com/booksystem

Doppelganger felt like talking to a 13-year-old girl with ADHD. I realize that the character Citrus is meant to be much older than 13, but she had the mentality of a 13-year-old.

I have mixed feelings about this novel, because the first half of the novel; I am not a fan of, but it becomes pretty interesting after that. I'd probably read the second book just to find out what happens and why it is all happening, let alone my interest in the characters.

The novel starts with our avid reader, Citrus, who is never late for school but just this one time, is. The moment she gets to school things get weird; first the lady in the office erases her as attending when she comes in for a late pass. Then she finds herself in second our taking the test, she'd been so worried about. Then her crush Aedan is beside her, with the same dilemma. He's in there taking a test too. From there the events get weirder and weirder.

One of the main things that annoyed me in this novel was Citrus and her inability to let things sink in for the first half of the novel. Then we find her fickle heart and the constant change of status on her feelings for Aedan. At the beginning she's like I have like a half crush on him, then she claims she's had a full blown crush on him forever, then she drops the hammer and say's "I'm in love." It's been a few hours since the whole thing started.

For me she is redeemed in the end, because she stops wondering about how the doppelganger is doing on her tests and projects, and starts wondering if her friends and family are dead. She becomes realistic and slightly likeable in the end.

I believe that the author set up everything perfectly for this novel, in tone and setting anyway. Right off she lets you know it's a YA novel with some comical and some serious parts.

The best part of this novel was the twist towards the end that I did not see coming, and yet I should have. It makes me feel stupid for not noticing before. I also like how it complicates the entire storyline; seriously at the end there are so many unsolved dilemmas, that it frustrates me. Even now I'm sitting here like, "Why??"

There's a bad habit in this novel of focusing on things that have no importance to the storyline, or getting sidetracked in the characters thoughts about something totally irrelevant. The irrelevant thoughts could attest to the characters personality and how she is constantly side tracked by her battles in this novel. However they were annoying to read.

Can I just say, if your name is Citrus I would call you Orange too. Your parents are practically begging me to do it, so I think the nickname is well deserved.

An interesting novel with ups and downs, overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great heroine, intruiging mystery 18 Mar. 2013
By A. McCall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sixteen year-old Citrus Leahy is a total bookworm, wrapped up in reading 'The Hunger Games'. In fact, she's so absorbed in reading that shestays up late, oversleeps, and misses the bus to school, which means that she has to bike there instead.

Which means she's going to be really, incredibly late for class. Citrus shows up at the front office tired and anxious to make it to history test on time, but when she gets her hall pass to history, she sees herself in the classroom, already scratching down answers.

Aedan, one of her classmates, is also standing outside the door, watching his doppelganger take his test. Aedan and Citrus are off on a life and death investigation, trying to discover who those doppelgangers really are -- and why they want to take over their lives.

What I liked about this book:
At first, I was a bit thrown off by the use of run on sentences. The grammar Nazi in me wanted to pull out a red pen and shriek. Once I let go of that first instinct, I really enjoyed the voice Harris created for Citrus Leahy. The run-on sentences are as much a part of Citrus as the crossed out sentences are a part of Juliette in 'Shatter Me'. The run on sentences capture Citrus' particular brand of neurotic, and I could almost hear here hyperventilating when she got anxious in the story.

When she's not on the verge of an anxiety attack, Citrus is a remarkably resourceful heroine. She has enough quirk and charm to be grounded, and enough spunk and determination to keep me rooting for her the whole way through.

Since I'm a sucker for supernatural/paranormal stories, I enjoyed the idea of Doppelgangers. It treads on some familiar ground (Harris even explicitly references 'The Faculty' and 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' in the story), but does so in a fresh and appealing way.

What I didn't like about this book:

Let's just say the ending is 'unresolved'. I found myself screaming 'Nononononono!' when I reached the end of the book. If you're the type of reader who likes closure, you might want to wait for the next installment to come out before diving into this book. Harris definitely left me wanting more answers.

******SPOILER ALERTS*******
The nature of the Doppelgangers isn't fully understood at the end of this book. Are they aliens? Monsters? Human experimentations? Who knows? The little that Citrus does learn about the Doppelgangers doesn't give readers much to go on.
******END SPOILERS*********

Final verdict:
If you're looking for a quick paranormal YA read, check this one out. It's full of twists and turns, and Harris has created a loveable heroine. I'll be checking out the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting , fresh read! 8 Aug. 2014
By S. Mahaffey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Exhausted Citrus wakes up to find she is late for school. When Citrus arrives at school, she is stopped by security and made to go to the office for a tardy slip. When Citrus gets to her classroom, she peeks in the classroom and sees herself taking the world history test she is late for. Standing there, she doesn't know what to think or do. She does realize that she is seeing a doppleganger but how did she get one? Is anyone else a doppleganger? How can she tell?

I liked the mystery, the twists and turns in the story. It is suspenseful. The story is original and fresh. I also consider the story paranormal because of the dopplegangers. The only part of the book I didn't like was the ending. I realize that it is a series but it let me down even though I can't wait to read the sequel!

4.0 out of 5 stars A realistic start to an unrealistic series! Can't wait for more. 7 July 2014
By Crystal S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given a copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley, in return for an honest review.

"Doppelganger" has been on my wish list ever since I first saw it on Goodreads a year ago. The idea sounded promising and as soon as I saw it posted on NetGalley, I requested it.

I cannot even fathom what it would be like to run into myself. But it seemed like the reactions by the characters in this story were pretty accurate. I could imagine myself freaking out just as Citrus did. I could imagine the completely RANDOM thoughts that were going through her mind, as being pretty close to what I'd be thinking. It made me feel like the characters were real. There are a lot of teen/young adult books out, and it seems like the characters are just cut from a mold. They are all beautiful, amazing, popular (or best friend to the populars) and flawless. This story seemed to really run the gambit of normal teens. And they didn't always have the answers. It was amazing in that aspect.

Another plus that I don't see too often in recent books, I was actually surprised by "the twist." I absolutely didn't see it coming! And it wasn't a twist that comes at you out of the blue or is so unbelievable that it doesn't belong in the story. (And yes, I do realize that it's a sci-fi book in which the unbelievable happens...) It was just the right amount of twist for the story.

Of course, the book was not flawless. I don't know how many reviews I have written with this same complaint. End the story line when you end the book! It's ok to write a series, and it's ok to have cliff-hangers, just don't stop a book mid-scene. Doppelganger is kind of in the gray area for me with this. It does stop mid-adventure, but it's not like a lot of other books that are out right now, that just stop mid thought. At least this one ended at a good point in their adventure. It's almost like ending a Shakespearean play after an act, and you have to go buy another play to find out what happens. But I guess this is better than ending the play at the end of a scene!

Other than me not liking how the ending was done for this book, I will be keeping my eyes out for the rest of the series. I'm very interested to see what happens to Citrus and the gang. Doppelgangers gets a solid 4 stars from me!
