Read in May, 2010

I found this galley at the store and picked it up because of the cover (which was ultimately changed for the paperback release!). Gaia is an apprentice midwife in her town, assisting her mother with deliveries. Gaia and her mother must give three of the babies that they deliver to the Enclave each month where they will live in the elite society. Another dystopian story, but very unique. Gaia discovers that her mother is secretly keeping track of the babies that are being given to the Enclave and when her mother is placed under arrest, Gaia must decide if she should remain loyal to the Enclave. Gripping story that will capture your attention from the beginning
