Gattaca meets Dark Angel from international best-selling authors Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant, author of GONE, BZRK and Front Lines. A mystery-thriller that bursts out of the world of genetic science and into the lives of teens. The perfect read for teens who loved Scott Westerfeld's Uglies.
Love has never had much of a place in the life of Evening Spiker. But being the daughter of a billionaire genetic scientist has other perks. Like a private hospital where you can recover from near-fatal road accidents. And a hot surfer boy to push your wheelchair. While Eve is healing, her mother sets her an unexpected challenge: to use a cutting-edge virtual reality system to design the perfect boy; everything from the colour of his eyes to the level of his IQ. It’s the chance of a lifetime. The chance to play God . . . or is it more than just playing?
An exceptional page-turner from the creator of the GONE series. Escapism doesn’t get more thrilling than this book for teens.
Fans of Ally Condie's 'Matched' series will love this.
