Replica: A Writing Competition

Enter your story to win a copy of Replica by Lauren Oliver!


We have a new writing competition to kick off in partnership with Hodder Books and introducing Lauren Oliver's new book Replica. Write your own story based on the extract of the book or write a movella containing two different stories intertwined into one in your own unique way and you might win a brand new copy of the book! On top of all that, the winners of this competition will be chosen by author Lauren Oliver herself.



About the Book


Replica is two stories that can be read together or apart in a compelling tale of two girls who become linked together by one interesting facility: Haven Institute.


Lyra’s story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that, from a distance, looks serene and even beautiful - but up close the locked doors, military guards, and biohazard suits tell a different story. In truth, Haven is a clandestine research facility where thousands of replicas, or human models, are born, raised, and observed. When a surprise attack is launched on Haven, two of its young experimental subjects—Lyra, or 24, and the boy known only as 72—manage to escape.


Gemma has been in and out of hospitals for as long as she can remember. A lonely teen, her life is circumscribed by home, school, and her best friend, April. But after she is nearly abducted by a stranger claiming to know her, Gemma starts to investigate her family’s past and discovers her father’s mysterious connection to the secretive Haven research facility. Hungry for answers, she travels to Florida, only to stumble upon two replicas and a completely new set of questions.
