Samantha Andrews had it all; great parents, perfect grades, and a boyfriend who just happened to be the hottest guy in school. But a secret from her past turns her world upside down.
Samantha learns she was part of a genetic experiment meant to give her special abilities. For years, the global corporation who created her watched her from afar, but now they want her--and the technology inside her--back!

Forced to go on the run, Samantha ends up finding another person just like her. Now they're both in danger and a rogue scientist discovers one of them only has a few months left to live!

(The Samantha Project #1)

The Samantha Project (The Samantha Project, #1)How could a teen who is living the American dream suddenly lose it all and find herself thrown into a terrifying world filled with unbelievable secrets, hidden life-long lies and a target on her back for capture? That’s where Samantha finds herself when her parents are killed, she begins to hear things that normal ears wouldn’t pick up and she must run, fast and far with only a note with a destination to get to.

Top secret genetics experiments were run years before and it seems Samantha is a product of this manipulation, but her “powers” will not unleash fully until her eighteenth birthday. Alone, seeking answers and trying to stay alive, Sam finds herself in the company of a man and his son who know only too well what she is going through, but the hell she is trapped in is about to get worse and Samantha discovers not all of her family are gone and time is running out for her to find answers as to why she has super-abilities.

She has given up so much for so little information, but she may have found even more, if she survives.

THE SAMANTHA PROJECT by Stephanie Karpinske is the start of a young adult science fiction series that is not bloated with angst, but with a strong heroine who is intelligent and resilient as she faces what the world has in store for her. Will she find a new love to replace her longtime boyfriend who is now gone from her life? Where can she hide, while staying one step ahead of science gone crazy?

Stephanie Karpinske eases us into her story, gives us an atmosphere of love and family, trust and beauty right before she rips the rug out from under us and pitches head on into a tale of suspense, deceit and crushing loss. Who is Samantha? What has been done to her in the name of science? Who else has been effected? Is there someone she is supposed to find? Is it her doppelganger?
Once the world building is done and Samantha’s journey begins, there is no time to rest! Hang on tight, because when this one hits top speed, it flies! A fresh look at YA sci-fi, low on angst, high on suspense!


  1. Sounds like a cool read! I love reading stories where the "queen b" gets a total wake-up call, like Vampire Diaries or Rebel Belle :)

    2. Ha yeah me too :) I love the "slow burn" romances especially.
