Five near-future YA novels set in awesomely altered worlds

One title on Melissa Albert's list of five near-future YA novels set in awesomely altered worlds, as shared on the B & N Teen Blog:
Falls the Shadow, by Stefanie Gaither

In this dark debut, death is not the end for a select group of early adopters of a new cloning technology. When Cate’s sister, Violet, dies, Cate doesn’t just have to get used to a perfectly identical clone interloper taking her sibling’s place. As the daughter of a prominent politician, she also has to put a happy face on, for both the anti-cloning protesters and paparazzi. But growing suspicions about the differences between old and new Violet send Cate down a rabbithole, into the heady sci-fi world of both the nefarious team behind the clone tech and their enemies, the Clone Control Advocacy group.
