Forced to the fringes of society, Lia joins others like her. But they are looked at as freaks. They are hated...and feared. They are everything but human, and according to most people, this is the ultimate crime - for which they must pay the ultimate price.

Lots of "teen" elements, but an intriguing book
This books was interesting. A world in a hopeful post apocalyptic utopia where everyone (who can afford it) is born perfect through genetic modification, and can live forever through advanced robotics.
The protagonist spends the first third of the book lamenting on her loss of social status, something I could not identify at all with, but eventually goes on to meet some interesting people who want to show her the capabilities of her newfound form, and one character who treats her like a bit of a curiousity. I enjoyed the rest of the book. It told a tale of the problems with living among mortal life when one is immortal. If it were not told through the eyes of a spoiled rich kid, I'd probably have liked it more.

Good look at the future
I very much liked the way the future is described, especially our social life on the internet and artificial life, however the story was a bit shallow and full of stereotypes. Clearly written for a sequel I will not read.
This is also a "young adult" book, but found it too course to recommend to my children.

If you want a book that will show you a horible world download this. Lia Kan is a rich spoild brat and she stays like that throughout the book, she has absolutely no redemable qualities. It was interesting for a while and the points it brought up were thought prevoking and very interesting, but if your looking for book where everything turns out alright in the end this isn't for you. I didn't like the book but it made me think. The only charicter that I found at all good at all worthwhile, well lets just say it didn't turn out good for him.
