Expected Publication: December 26th 2013 by Dial Books for Young Readers
After the violent death of her father, 17 year-old Zelia loses her younger sister, Dylia, during an abduction at a foster care agency. It turns out her sister Dylia isn’t just pretty and sweet – she’s illegal. In the year 2150, DNA must be pure by law, and anyone with enhanced genes face death. Zelia’s only allies are the freak-show inhabitants of her new, underground foster home. Along with the unexpected love of a very strange boy, she will need her flaws and their illicit traits to save the only family she has left.
I saw this on a WOW post last week and instantly knew that I had to feature it. It sounds incredible and I absolutely love the simplicity of the cover and how telling it is of the actual story. You read the title, the catchprashe and then everything sort of clicks a little in your head. I need this. Desperately. As in, Dial Books, I'm holding your family for ransom and I demand the first copy of this book you've got. I'm not kidding to be honest. I need this.
Link me to your WOW post in the comments below and I'll pop on over!
