Whom Am I

The protagonist, Miranda, is facing some troubling questions: What makes us human? Is it our DNA, our upbringing or the choices we make? The answers will force Miranda to deal with the biggest challenges of her life.

“Suspenseful YA novel … taut story, which features girl-power heroines confronting bad guys and the nature of the self. … Hitchcock-ian fun, full of deep questions to ponder.” — Kirkus Reviews
