About the Book

Like its ambitious companion novel, Replica, this far-reaching novel by the powerhouse author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy digs deep into questions of how to be a human being in a world where humanity cannot be taken for granted.

In the world outside of the Haven Institute, Lyra and Caelum are finding it hard to be human—and Lyra, infected at Haven with a terrible disease, finds her symptoms are growing worse. When Caelum leaves without warning, Lyra follows him, seeking a pioneering organization in Philadelphia that might have a cure. But what they uncover there is a shocking connection to their past, even as their future seems in danger of collapsing.

Though Gemma just wants to go back to her normal life after Haven, she soon learns that her powerful father has other plans for the replicas—unless she and her boyfriend Pete can stop him. But they soon learn that they aren’t safe either. The Haven Institute wasn’t destroyed after all, and now Gemma is the one behind the walls.

Bestselling author Lauren Oliver brings the Replica duology to a shocking close in Ringer, but like both Gemma and Lyra, you won’t be able to leave the world of Haven behind after you’ve turned the last page.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“The third-person narration plunges along at a positively addicting pace. Speculative fiction at its core, Oliver’s novel is also a reflection on the nature of humanity as explored through the dualities of life/death, autonomy/ownership, truth/lies, and good/evil.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The mirrored structure and flip book format work especially well here, as the two narratives connect but rely less on reimagining the same scenes, heightening the emotional resonance and providing double the suspense. This sequel is more exciting and a great deal steamier, with authentically bittersweet resolutions.” —Booklist

“Like Replica, this entry is a flip book and can be read in either order or by alternating between Gemma’s and Lyra’s stories—yet the narratives are intertwined, making for an interesting reading experience for teens.... Bringing this duology to a close, this sequel will delight fans of the previous entry.” —School Library Journal
