Publisher's Summary

A computer-hacking teen. The girl who wants to save him. And a rogue mirror reflection that might be the death of them both.

In private, 17-year-old Brandon hacks bank accounts just for the thrill of it. In public, he looks like any other tattooed bad boy with a fast car and devil-may-care attitude. He should know: he's worked hard to maintain that façade. With inattentive parents who move constantly from city to city, he's learned not to get tangled up in things like friends and relationships. So he'll just keep living like a machine, all gears and wires.

Then two things shatter his carefully-built image: Emma, the kind, stubborn girl who insists on looking beneath the surface - and the small matter of a mirror reflection that starts moving by itself. Not only does Brandon's reflection have a mind of its own, but it seems to be grooming him for something - washing the dye from his hair, yanking out his piercings, swapping his black shirts for... pastels. Then it tells him: it thinks it can live his life better, and it's preparing to trade places. And when it pulls Brandon through the looking-glass, not only will he need all his ill-gotten hacking skills to escape, but he's going to have to face some hard truths about who he's become. Otherwise he'll be stuck in a digital hell until he's old and gray, and Emma and his parents won't even know he's gone.

Cyberpunk at its best

Take a novel hacker concept, mix in some teenage angst along with A-type parental psychological issues and, finally, add a dollop of nanobots and be prepared for an enjoyable story telling tale.

FAST ACTION WITH FRESH CONCEPT

This book is like Matrix for YA. It fills you with all the ideas of OMG this could be happening right now! Lots of action, interesting characters and just enough real tech references to hook you in right away.

Sequel please!

For fans of YA books that are not romance driven!

I impulsively bought this book when it was a daily deal, but wow! I was utterly shocked by how good this book is! I burned through it in about a day and a half! I’m an adult, but this book is still very relatable; I was a teenager with a remarkably bad attitude at one point in my life, too!

I have been seeing other reviewers describe this book as the “YA matrix” and it absolutely is. However, there is a lot going on this book: a complex protagonist turned hero, good vs evil, coming of age, and a smattering of romance, all in the backdrop of an interesting cyberpunk story line. MacLeod Andrew’s performance is fantastic, and he really made this book exciting! He voices the female characters well, too, without over the top, cringe-worthy voicings, and I am so appreciative of that.

My only issue is that this book has an open-ended ending which I am not all that fond of; as soon as this book ended I was relentlessly searching to see if there is/will be a sequel, but to no such avail. All in all, I was not disappointed by Duplicity! Highly recommend for fans of YA books that do not revolve solely around romance!

Entertaining as long as you don't analyze too much

Duplicity has a really interesting main character and a fascinating premise - what if your reflection has a life of its own? The problem is that the author's plot device of a Matrix-like electronic world connected to ours through nanobots does not provide a believable explanation for everything that occurs. He would have been far better off using magic instead of science. Despite the issues, however, the story was suspenseful and well read. I enjoyed it by stepping over a few gaping plot holes as I followed the extremely well-done 'hero.'

A reflection on his life

An imaginative story line, great both to read and for listening. MacLeod Andrews gives an excellent narration, becoming the voice of the main character from whose point of view the story is told.
The book is both funny and thought provoking, sustaining interest throughout and with a decent ending, leaving the reader to de ide for themselves. A fun, easy read, recommended.

Wow. What a surprise.

I bought this book as a daily special, so I got it on sale. It would have been unfortunate if it had never crossed my path.

While it wasn't my standard romance, there was an underlying romantic theme in the story that was very sweet and tragic.

It is a cautionary big brother is watching everything you do and you better watch out. Kinda story with some really interesting twists and turns that I enjoyed.

A pretty good YA story

What did you like best about Duplicity? What did you like least?

The author was very descriptive in his wording. The metamorphosis that occurred to the main character were as good here as they could be in a movie.

Would you recommend Duplicity to your friends? Why or why not?

A good book for a teen. And I do thoroughly enjoy some YA fiction. However, this one didn't keep my attention after awhile. I'm not complaining to much; I understand that I am about 30 years past the target audience:)

I had to stop...

Sounds identical to Mr Robot, maybe not precisely, but too close. I stopped watching Mr Robot because it got too weird.

I was actually going to return it, but you need to do that within 365 days.

I stopped reading this at Ch4, skipped to the end & decided "No." Even googled to see if the book & the TV show were related. Nope, but you could have fooled me.

Just brilliant!

What about Macleod Andrews’s performance did you like?

He nailed Brandon's voice perfectly, and all the other characters were so distinctive and easy to listen to I forgot it was only one narrator.
