This book is about a boy named Matt. Matt is a clone who grew in a cow for nine months and then was harvested from her. Matt lives in Mexico and works on a poppy plantation. Matt was cloned by a drug Lord names Opium who controls everyone on the plantation. The workers on the plantation are moonitored by bodyguards. Matt wants to escape, but the body guards are always watching. He also has a chip in him so Opium knows where he is at at all times.
This book was well written. I normally wouldn't read a book like this though. It's not something of interest to me. I think that anyone who is into science fiction and futuristic books would like to read this.
