An un-putdownable thriller for fans of Uglies When a crash kills their father and leaves them orphaned, Zel knows she needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is taken by strangers using bizarre sensory weapons, and Zel finds herself in a safe house for teens who aren't like any she's ever seen before-teens who shouldn't even exist. Using broken-down technology, her new friends' peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is encoded in Dyl's DNA. A spiraling, intense, romantic story set in 2150-in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy drugs, and guys with four arms-this is about the human genetic "mistakes" that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can turn out to be heroes.
