‘The Originals’ Was Really Original

“Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up believing they were identical triplets.

Then they learned the truth…

and no one else can know.

Now, to the outside world, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one seventeen-year-old daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, pursuing extracurriculars, and even dating.

Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, the one person who can help her realize she’s not a carbon copy of the others – she’s an individual with unique dreams and desires. Digging deeper into her background and her mother’s role in her life, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created.”


Lizzie has lived her whole life being the exact same as her sisters. To the way they dress, act and talk so she just really wants to be noticed for who she is. She a bit more rebellious compared to her sister and she finds herself getting in trouble with her mom a lot throughout the book. I liked Lizzie. She was entertaining to read about even though there were times where she was really stubborn, I still liked her.

Sean is a friendly and simple character. He has a passion for photography and has a pretty chill personality. When Sean discovers Lizzie’s secret he’s really understanding and wants to do everything in his power to support and protect her, I liked Sean he was so sweet and just a nice character.

Lizzie’s sisters are both really different compared to her. Ella is a little more preppy and sophisticated while Betsy is more chill and relaxed. 


The plot is more focused on Lizzie, Ella, and Betsy trying to figure out what their mom is hiding from them. Because Lizzie, Ella, and Betsy are clones they all act as one-person named Elizabeth and because there one person they can only have one boyfriend. That becomes a problem because Lizzie likes Sean and Ella likes someone else. After Sean finds out their clones and all different people he takes it surprisingly well and then the plot begins to speed up. They face problems with their mom and scientist who want to study them.


The romance between Lizzie and Sean is so sweet and innocent. It’s just a cute high school romance. They meet and have this charming connection, Lizzie begins to grow a small crush on him as the book goes on.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I rate this book a 4 out of 5. I thought this book was cute and entertaining to read. I liked the character and how Lizzie and her sisters were all similar both physically and personality wise but they were also really different. I loved reading this book but it is sadly the first book to leave this competition. I hope you have enjoyed this post, you’ve just been reviewed.
