Zoe is a GAP – genetically altered person, and lives in a city where only GAP’s are allowed to live.
Noah is a natural, and runs protests against the GAP’s and the privileges that they have.

When Zoe’s brother goes missing, Zoe tries to track him down, and ends up finding Noah. Noah agrees to help her, and together they find out exactly what her brother had gotten himself into.
What happened to Liam? What experiments was he doing? And will Zoe ever see him again?

This was an okay sci-fi story, but it seemed to take a long while for anything interesting to happen.

Zoe and Noah were both okay characters. I appreciated how Zoe was worried about her brother, and Noah seemed to have a lot of love and time for his mother.

The storyline was okay, but the pace was a little lacking. It felt like the story didn’t really get interesting until around the 70% mark, and while we did get some good revelations, the bits in-between were just a little dull for me.
There was some romance, which was okay, but nothing amazing, and it was a bit of a Romeo and Juliet story, as Noah and Zoe weren’t allowed to be together because he was a natural and she was a GAP.
The ending was okay, but it was very obvious that this was only the first book in the series, as very little was resolved by the end.
Overall; an okay YA sci-fi, but took a long time to really get interesting.
6.5 out of 10.
