    DescriptionKnox was born into one of the City's wealthiest families. A Patron, he has everything a boy could possibly want -the latest tech, the coolest clothes, and a Proxy to take all his punishments. When Knox breaks a vase, Syd is beaten. When Knox plays a practical joke, Syd is forced to haul rocks. And when Knox crashes a car, killing one of his friends, Syd is branded and sentenced to death. Syd is a Proxy. His life is not his own. Then again, neither is Knox's. Son to a master manipulator, Knox and Syd have more in common than either would guess. So when Knox and Syd realize that the only way to beat the system is to save each other, they flee. Yet Knox's father is no ordinary Patron, and Syd is no ordinary Proxy. The ensuing cross-country chase will uncover a secret society of rebels, test both boys' resolve, and shine a blinding light onto a world of those who owe and those who pay. Some debts, it turns out, cannot be repaid.

    Review quote
    Rave Reviews for "Proxy" "I fell in love with this story from the first sentence to the final, epic page. London is a force to be reckoned with." --Marie Lu, author of the Legend trilogy "A fast-paced dystopian novel which should appeal to readers of the "Hunger Games"." --"VOYA" "Not only is "Proxy" an edge-of-your-seat literary thrill ride, it's an important and groundbreaking novel as well...London has crafted a true tour de force." --Matt de la Pena, author of "Mexican White Boy" "A big twist and heroic ending will leave readers eager for more" --"Shelf Awareness" "Offering intriguing moral dilemmas amid breakneck action...The matter-of-fact presence of a gay lead [Syd] in an action driven story is welcome and overdue." --"Publishers Weekly" "An action-packed thrill ride." --"SLJ"
