Seventeen years ago, Cody and her boyfriend James were two of the lucky babies from 1% of the population randomly selected to receive genetic engineering.
Known as the "Ones," this generation of genetically enhanced teenagers is excelling. Cody, James, and their fellow Ones are healthy, beautiful, talented . . . and to some, that’s not fair. Mounting fear and jealousy of the Ones’ success leads to the creation of the Equality Movement, which quickly gains enough traction to outlaw future genetic engineering - and demote the Ones to second-class citizens.
Cody anticipated the repercussions even before the brick smashed through her window. It bears a clear message: the darkest impulses of society have been unleashed, and the Ones are the targets. As their school, the government, and even family and friends turn against them, Cody begins to believe they have no other choice but to protect their own. She draws closer to a group of radical Ones led by the passionate and fevered Kai, and James begins to question just how far she is willing to go to fight for her rights . . .
Themes of justice, discrimination and terrorism mix with actual science to create a frightening version of our near future in this pulse-pounding thriller.
