In this powerful and ambitious first novel, nominated for the 2004 Booktrust Teenage Prize, Alison Allen-Gray tackles the topical issue of cloning.

When Dominic discovers he is a second son, and that he was cloned from another Dominic, a brother who died before he was born, he sets off in pursuit of the truth about his conception.

On the road to self-knowledge, Dominic undergoes various crises of identity, while facing threats from a controlling state and a voraciously-intrusive media.
